Café Daen

Cosy brown eatery with a free party room. Located in the old Nijmegen Laeckenhal in the heart of the old city centre. Open daily. In summer, lunch and dinner are served from noon seven days a week.

Cafe Daen has been a household name in Nijmegen for more than 25 years. We are known for our craft beer menu, and our “Daenplanken”, a selection of several delicious dishes served on a board! Choose from meat, fish and vegetarian. Beer/food combinations are all the rage, so let us surprise you. You can also enjoy lunch and dinner on our lively terrace. Cafe Daen also has two atmospheric party rooms for hire for various occasions, "De Daenzaal" and "De Daengewelven". Cafe Daen is housed in De Oude Laeckenhal, a beautiful monumental building constructed in 1600.

Heated terrace with heated cushions available!
