& local

When you step inside Botanica, you’ll find an array of colourful butterflies, a variety of plants you likely haven’t seen before and the smell of freshly prepared food ready to sweep you off your feet. Inspired by nature, we do also do our best to preserve it.



We may live in a very flat country, but there are an incredible amount of ingredients and places to get inspired by. From Scheveningen Beach to De Haagse markt, we can either visit the ocean or the greenest market in Europe. All a quick bike ride away.

With that same vision, we choose home-grown and homemade. By focusing on local suppliers, we support smaller companies in our community and offer you the best of The Netherlands. As such, it’s no surprise that our coffee roast only supplies to businesses within The Hague. Note, only by bike. With each aspect from product to plate, we intend to have the smallest footprint in the supply chain.


The inspiration of Botanica is to showcase all the beautiful fruit and vegetables we have here in The Netherlands and what we can create from it. We can take a simple ingredient like cabbage and make it into couscous/ risotto/ crème/ we can pickle it or smoke it, we can make vegan béchamel from it. We can use it as a meat substitute or eat it raw. We want to put forward to our guests so much more than just a simple product.


Every month we shed the light on one of our neighbors that help us in our mission towards honest and local food.

“The Hague deserves better coffee.” With that vision Stefan started Roast Factory in 2016. Focused on the The Hague market he guarantees a sustainable and organic product. With beans packed in re-usable buckets and the weekly bike delivery to our Botanica restaurant: it’s safe to say this is our choice for a great local coffee supplier!
