We came here after visiting MAS, as it is right next to the museum, for drinks. The service was nice, but the drinks, cappuccino and hot chocolate, were average. Also the interior design, and especially the lighting, could have been better.More

Oh, many thanks for the review...! Very happy with your text. So next time, try one of our soups and visit the MAS museum. Both are worth to explore ;-)

Great cafe, lovely location. Service suffered a little when we were there but it was a very busy day for them (Easter Sunday). Most importantly: GF bread options available! I had soup, was delicious.

We'd gone to the observation terrace at MAS & decided to have lunch in the cafe. Very pleased we did - very tasty panini and a good range of beers. My wife enjoyed the coffee and apple cake. Prices were reasonable. Recommended.

The coffee, mind you, is fine, but service is casual. One gets the feeling that one is not really welcome and that the staff would rather be left alone.

The STORM museum cafe is the new 'place to be' in the Eilandje district. Comfortable leather benches invite visitors to reflect on their visit of MAS. But you can also head there with colleagues after a hectic working day or enjoy a moment of peace and quiet before or after a day's shopping on the terrace. Architect Kurt Hereygers used a mix of 'rich' and 'poor' materials for the cafe's interior: leather, oak, mirrors, multiplex and concrete, finished in warm hues. The eye-catching feature is the huge wall cabinet. The menu features small, healthy and seasonal fast food dishes in addition to Illy coffee, Oxfam Fair Trade juices and beers, alcoholic beverages and wine.
