What a pleasant surprise

After a bad experience in another restaurant at breakfast time, this brasserie was a much more pleasant experience for morning coffee. The manager was friendly and welcoming as were the staff and the food and service was very good too...so much so that we returned for afternoon tea.

A modern cafe with no atmosphere or character. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The menu was what you'd expect in Belgian cafe - omelettes, toasted sandwiches, baguettes, waffles, etc. the coffee was quite nice. The cost was about average. Wouldn't bother going again as there are plenty of better eateries close by.

Only used this café for breakfast. Great quality and well priced The royal breakfast is a continental breakfast lovers dream at 10 euros and the wife who only eats a small breakfast was catered for with wholemeal toast and coffee. My friends had omelettes and said they were also excellent. The coffee is also strong and just what you need.

It's just fine as a diner. The problem is they don't charge you diner prices, they charge you fine dining prices and the food does not live up to that. The waffles are good enough but no better than you can get from street merchants. The egg dishes are also average. The Service was good.

Came here twice for breakfast as this was a better option than having breakfast at the nearby Ibis hotel where we were staying. The waffles, scrambled egg and omelettes were all good, so too were the set breakfasts with a good range of breads and spreads. It was encouraging to see that most of the clientele were locals. Service was... More

We have chosen this coffee bar specially to try famous Belgian waffles. And we made a very good choice. We had waffles with fruits and strawberries and it was unforgettable meal. Don't afraid to order strawberries as long as they are on offer in this bar. There are supplied by one selected producer who guarantee quality through all season and... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to try this restaurant for breakfast on our first morning. We got there late morning and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The breakfast is a twist on continental fare. I had an omelette with bacon and my partner had the platter, which consisted of various breads and rolls, ham, cheese,... More

We found the staff to be very rude when we visited in April 2015. We were really looking forward to eating there but we're very disappointed by the attitude of the waiters. Would definitely not recommend.

Visited Brasserie Agrea last year when we were in Ghent and it did not disappoint then. Nice to return to a place that got your thumbs up previously. Varied menu, in several languages, with something for everyone. Very pleasant welcoming staff. Ordered a goat’s cheese salad and my wife had a trio of pancakes with jam. Service was quick, food...

The service was friendly but food wasn't exceptional: we had a cheese omelette and a toast. The omelette was too cooked and with little cheese. The toast was quite dry and not different from one that you can do at home. Still a place to go after a visit to the cathedral in a chilly cold day
