Amazing Omelet!

This is tiny, cute little breakfast place on a square where some sort of auction was taking place. We enjoyed coffee, crepes and omelets while we watch the people toting off their auction treasures. The Greek omelet may very well have been the best omelet I have ever had. It was firm on the... read more

The food is very nice, however I consider close to 10 euro for a single pancake with some (very interesting) extras somewhat overpriced. The place itself is very nice, in a nice location.

It is a nice little cafe, very close to the shopping district and beautifully decorated. I have spent an afternoon with my friends there for a refreshing coffee. The menu was clear, organized and clever. I have enjoyed the fact that If you couldn't choose which type of pie you like the had the option of " I can choose"... More

On the edge of the shopping district is this charming little cafe. We always go for breakfast before hitting the market on a Saturday morning. It's run by a woman who sometimes has help, but it's a little like sitting in someone's front room with an eclectic gypsy/kitchy/retro pop design style. It's a little pricey, but if you're the kind... More

A nice little café close to the Plantin-Moretus museum. We had a delicious pancake and there was a good selection of teas and tarts. It has a cozy feel and friendly service.

We went to this restaurant because of Tripadvisor. It is a very tiny bistro with 1 person doing everything (cooking, serving,..) It is a cute bistro, but when full, you are in for a wait. The food is basic, but quite all right. Nothing super special though. It is cute, I get it, but it does not deserve to be... More

A sweet picturesque little café / bistro close to the Grote Markt in Antwerp. We had breakfast. Cozy little room, good service. The food's not cheap (breakfasts were between 9 and 16 €), but fresh, homemade and delicious. Recommendable.

Very small and cozy cafe run by young couple. Homemade cakes are very tasty and feel-like-home atmosphere is really warm. Recommended for the break in long walk or breakfast!

We had our breakfast here and it's a very small and cozy place. The madam making our breakfast was very friendly and funny. The breakfast itself was pretty expensive but you got a lot so moneys worth. And more important, it was fresh and very tasteful!
