Bistro and reastaurant “Caffè”

© NRW-Forum Düsseldorf

The Italian bistro-style restaurant “Caffè”, operated by the Rossini restaurant group, offers an array of delicious food and drink at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.

Whether or not you view the exhibition, no matter whether indoors or outdoors, you can enjoy friendly service and Mediterranean cuisine at its finest.

The menu features antipasti, salads, seasonal soups or carpaccio, pasta, meat and fish dishes as well as sweet and savoury snacks and desserts. There are plenty of vegan choices available. The beverage selection ranges from non-alcoholic refreshments such as soft drinks, juices and spritzers, to spirits including beer and wine, sparkling wine and Champagne as well as cocktails, and also includes tea and Italian coffee creations.

The “Caffè” has the same opening hours as NRW-Forum Düsseldorf: Tuesday to Sunday from 11 am to 8 pm, and Friday to 10 pm. Hot meals are available throughout.


The “Caffè” is located on the ground floor of NRW-Forum Düsseldorf and is wheelchair accessible. It is set in the middle of the central rotunda, with seating for around 70 people. Setting the mood is a colourful carpet by the Berlin artist group “Ignes Idee”.

An extensive collection of current newspapers, magazines and books on art offers the perfect complement to a relaxing and fortifying break.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout NRW-Forum Düsseldorf.

In pleasant weather, the treats served up by the “Caffè” bistro taste particularly good outdoors on the spacious terrace outside the museum. Sunbathers are in their element here, because the terrace faces westward. Those who prefer more shade can take a seat under one of the generously sized umbrellas. From the terrace, guests have a lovely view over the leafy Ehrenhof courtyard and the Hofgarten park that lies behind it, via which a 10-minute walk takes you to the famous boulevard known as the “Kö” (Königsallee). The Tonhalle Düsseldorf and the SMKP Stiftung Museum Kunstpalast are right next door.
