The Kinderkookkafé

About the Kinderkookkafé

‘Het Kinderkookkafé’ which means  ‘kids’ kitchen café’ opened the doors in 1981. Here children come to cook for and to serve guests. The idea is that children are responsible for the running of the restaurant including setting up tables, cooking the meal and serving the guests, this all depending on their age and with some (adult) help of course. This Dinner cooking is meant for children from 8-12 years old and can be done during open subscription days, f.e. the first Saturday of the month and several holidays. Or one can book a (birthday) party for 6-10 friends.

In November 2004 the 'Kafé' moved to the current location in "het Vondelpark". Before that, for 23 years, we were situated at an unique place at the Oudezijds Achterburgwal, in the oldest area of Amsterdam. Now, in our "new" building, we have double the space plus a big outdoor seating area and we are connected to an ‘after school care’ centre.

Since we are situated in the Vondelpark we have opening hours from 10am-5pm, 7 days a week. In the "Help-Jezelf-bar" the youngest children can also do tasks that are usually done by adults. They fetch their own drinks, collect ingredients from the bar to prepare their own cakes, cookies or pizzas. They prepare everything at the parents table and they clean up a bit afterwards.

See for your self. There is no reservation needed for visiting the "Help-Jezelfbar" and entrance is free.
