Very friendly staff and food really good. Waffles definitely amongst the best. Nice sandwiches. Small menu but definitely worth a visit for a light lunch. Recommended.

We sat in the garden at the back as all the tables out front were full. Garden just as nice. The menu is varied and there is something for all tastes. They had menus in all languages and slipped in to english as soon as they had identified our nationality. Our food was delicious and well prepared. The only reason... More

We came here late around 11am just when the crowds were easing out. Have to say we had the best breakfast while we were in Belgium. We had the eggs with salmon and and Egg white omelet. The best part was the waffles! It is must try if you're in Gent. Absolutely fantastic!

The staff are very friendly and helpful, speaking several languages and having menus in most common languages as well. They have tables outside on the street and in a patio to the rear as well as inside. The décor is a little "fast-food"ish but clean and comfortable. The service was excellent and the food also excellent. I had the waffles... More

Their waffles were fine, but after spending €26 I feel like they should be willing to provide me a glass of tap water after the meal ended (I had already purchased €4 of water for the actual course). Grumble grumble Europe grumble.

I stopped in here on a rainy day and took my partner back on the next. Fantastic cherry waffles and great coffee! It's a nice little spot directly across from some main tourist sites, reasonably priced given the location. Great service, as well!

We went to visit Ghent. At noon we wanted to have lunch at the Agrea. We ordered a meat sandwich with fried egg and veggies and a sandwich with Bolognese sauce. Because we could see in the plates of the other guests that there were only a little vegetables with it, we ordered an extra side disch with vegetables for... More
