Upon arrival me and my mom were made to feel very welcome. The breakfasts were perfect and high quality food. Our room was lovely, super clean and very tasteful. Hosts were always helpful and totally willing to answer our questions about Ghent or other day trips we planned. We would highly recommend Simon Says!

I'm a regular at this cozy coffeehouse, the staff is really friendly and the food is great. Prices are reasonable and the interior is beautiful. If you're looking for a relaxing Sunday brunch, this is definitely the place to be!

We stayed at Simon Says just before Easter in 2014 and had a fantastic stay. When we arrived we were given a free drink each (which was delicious!) and one of the staff sat down with us and showed us a map and gave us advice on where was good to eat and drinks etc. Simon and his staff were... More

This place was recommended by our Airbnb host in Ghent. We stopped off from a bike ride and had a lovely lunch here. Soups, salads, and sandwiches. Friendly service and quite busy with locals. We only ate at the restaurant so I can't speak to the accommodations.

We ate lunch here and it was good. Prices are very reasonable. Everything is home made. The atmosphere was fun as well- there's a great outside patio for sitting when the weather is nice. A good, inexpensive, relaxing stop for lunch.

Simon, Christophe and the others (sorry, others :) ) do a fantastic job of running this place. Their joy and motivation shines through. Without knowing I arrived somewhat early for checking in, at the busiest time of day but could occupy my room in 5 minutes. I was not aware that breakfast was included in the price —I confused Simon... More

The location was perfect for our needs and central for everything we wanted to do - the standard of the room was excellent and everything was thought through to make the stay really relaxing, the cafe and the room was very...

We went here for breakfast on a sunday morning. We where lucky enough to get a table as there are not many tables. Great menu with delicious breakfast deals. Coffee is just perfect and staff is very friendly. I would most definitely visit this place again!

Like other reviews, we came upon this place by strolling through Ghent. It's a busy little cafe in an otherwise quiet location. The service is great, friendly and quick. Lots of homemade snacks, cakes, soups to stop for a light lunch as well as breakfast. We only had time to stop for a coffee but others were enjoying the food... More

Came upon this place by accident in our hungry wanderings and couldn't have been happier. Modest prices, wonderfully creative soup and sandwich, the cappuccino was done with an artist's touch, and the staff quite friendly!
