The Heart of the campus

A quick coffee or a full breakfast, a laptop session with tasty benefits, a business dinner or a drink with friends; Grand Café LIVING never fails to make you feel welcome. Right in the middle of the VU site, Grand Café LIVING is literally and figuratively at the heart of the campus. Drop by and make yourself at home.


On a university campus, it makes perfect sense to eat good food, because you will need brain fuel here. Grand Café LIVING loves sustainable, healthy and tasty food. That is why the kitchen staff works with fresh ingredients; our bowls, for instance, are packed with vitamins. Our love for sustainability is not only reflected in the menu; the building itself was designed with sustainable and energy-efficient materials.

Fresh ingrediënts are central to our kitchen


Grand Café LIVING welcomes you at any time of day, on weekdays only. Our all-day menu invites you to come in whenever suits you best. Drop by for a quick coffee, use the lounge for a laptop session with tasty benefits or linger for drinks and dinner.


Our menu offers options for every taste, and the same is true in terms of atmosphere; we want everyone to feel at home. Take a seat at our open bar, have a chat with our friendly staff and enjoy the space around you.

every day of the week

There’s plenty to celebrate at a place like VU Amsterdam, so at Grand Café LIVING, you can always pop in for a drink and a bite to eat. Small groups are welcome to drop by spontaneously, though reservations are strongly recommended. Want to celebrate something special? You can book our Greenroom or Yellowroom for dinners, drinks or other events. Enquire about the near-endless possibilities!
