5 cafes with fabulous terraces in The Hague

1) Gember

This daytime restaurant belongs to the museum building where also the GEM and the Photography Museum are located. The sun-drenched terrace of this modern museum restaurant is just splendid! Drink a coffee or have a glass of wine while overlooking the pond and the adjacent Kunstmuseum, one of the best works of architect Berlage.

2) Room

As soon as the sun is out, the terrace of Room is filled with cheerful sun lovers. This relaxed cafe-restaurant with terrace is located on the charming Anna Paulownaplein. Under the trees, you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or just have a drink accompanied by a plate of delicious appetisers.

3) Palmette

Until the 18th century, Plaats was the square where public executions took place. Now it’s a cheerful place with shops and restaurants, like Palmette. In summer, the terrace of this bar-restaurant is one of the most historical places for a coffee or a drink, while admiring the façades of the surrounding old buildings and the medieval prison gate.

4) Greens

In a newly built greenhouse in the middle of Westbroekpark, you can enjoy coffee, drinks and organic dishes made with veggies from the vegetable garden, also to be found on the property. The lush secluded terrace is one of the best places to relax. Greens also organises ‘green’ events, like organic theatre dinners, barbecues with garden salads, and garden days.

5) Grand Café De Pakschuit

The terrace boat of this genuine Dutch pub is a lovely place to drink a beer when the sun is out. A beer with a view, since it is located on a pretty canal with 17th-century houses. De Pakschuit has many Dutch and Belgian speciality beers on draft, and serves Mediterranean small bites.
