If you are visiting Ghent a must is to stop by Gwenola's for either a savoury or Sweets crêpe. The place is now an institution in Ghent and has excellent service and excellent crêpes and coffee. Try The crêpe with Brown Sugar and butter or The One with Calvados!

I was thinking I'd get a waffle, but the Pannekoekenhuis only offered Breton style crepes, so I said, ok, let's try one of those, what's the most traditional? The waitress told me that butter and brown sugar was the iconic crepe, so that's what I ordered, with a cup of coffee. Dang that was good. The crepe was a super-authentic... More

We ate here on the Saturday at lunchtime, the crepe was good - a savoury one, ham,egg & cheese. It was really good but I couldn't finish it all! Again recommended by our host!

We ate breakfast here on our last day in Ghent before heading back to Brussels. Our meal, Buckwheat crepes filled with ham and cheese, topped with two eggs - all the essential food groups! Excellent fortification for our rail journey back to Brussels!

I visited Gwenola with a friend of mine to have pancakes. First, we had to wait quite long for someone to take our order, although it wasn't crowded, and the waitress wasn't friendly. My friend picked a pancake with butter and it literally swam in butter. When she complained about it, the waitress didn't want to help her and said... More

I can't believe I've probably walked a thousand times passed this place. It looked old and dated and not very inviting. Hence I never stepped in. When searching for a restaurant to eat with friends on Tripadvisor I noticed the high rank of this place. So when walking passed it this noon with my parents we decided to give it... More

Nice place for a Saturday brunch. The pancakes were really tasty. And i would personally recommend their mocca milkshake!

I'm a new Gentenaar and happy to have discovered this place. It's just right to tide me over when out running errands, or as place to hang out for the atmosphere, especially on a cold and drizzly day. We like to share a savory (buckwheat) pancake (crepe) followed by a savory one. Many coffee and warm drink choices, as well... More

I visit Gwenola every time I'm in Gent for authentic pancakes and friendly service. No bells and whistles, just good food and coffee.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch meal here, with delicious pancakes (more like crepes) and a wonderful atmosphere. In spite of being in the heart of the tourist area, it feels very authentic.
