Museumcafé goudA

Hidden amid the historic buildings, you’ll find Museumcafé goudA, a pearl of a place sheltered in the garden of Museum Gouda. Find a lovely spot in the garden when the sun is shining or a cozy place in the vaulted cellar. The Museumcafé serves lunch, as well as a wonderful high tea, high wine, or even a high cheese. P.S. Don’t forget to try the cheesecake - it is delectable!

The lunch platters at Kruim are absolutely delicious! They also serve fantastic sandwiches, salads, and grilled sandwiches, though. This restaurant shares a building with the library, the regional archives, and a printing workshop so it is always bustling. Tip: You can also go to Kruim in the evening for a great hamburger, pizza, or pasta meal.

De Koffiefabriek

The name Koffiefabriek or ‘coffee factory’ says it all: coffee is the star here. The owners have turned coffee-making into a real art. If you are a coffee junkie, the High Coffee is an absolute must-try. It includes a range of coffee variants from the French press, Chemex and SanRemo machine with accompanying dishes.

Barista Café

The Barista Café can be found at the end of the Kleiweg. Whether you want to sit down for a cup of good coffee and pie, a wonderful lunch, or an extensive breakfast, the Barista Café serves it all. We highly recommend the Coconut Cappuccino, which is made with coconut milk instead of regular milk.

Kleiweg 100

Hofje van Jongkind

The owners of Hofje van Jongkind are passionate about coffee. This wonderful coffee bar makes coffee from beans roasted on site. Don’t go here just for the coffee, though, because its location in a former hofje or inner courtyard dating from 1702 makes it well worth a visit.
