Museum Cafe

From chicken soup to matzos, and from pear kugel to gefilte fish: many Jewish dishes are eaten all over the world, but some are truly Dutch. You can try a few of them here. Jewish cooking is partly determined by dietary laws that prescribe what you may and may not eat. At the same time, the scattering of the Jewish people throughout the world has resulted in a wide variety of tastes.

All products sold in the Museum Cafe are either dairy or parve, and kosher. Most ingredients are produced by our suppliers under rabbinical supervision or approved by the NIHS and PIG rabbinates. Exceptions are various items produced inhouse and new vegan items produced by the Jewish bakery Urban Bakers. The Museum Cafe does not have a kashrut certificate.
