Great Breakfast

We ate breakfast here several times while staying at the Marriott. I chose Julie's Big Breakfast. It included scrambled eggs on toast, a pancake; french toast; a croissant, orange juice and coffee. It was delicious (especially the french toast).

This little restaurant serves amazing cakes, tarts, and cupcakes as well as breakfast. We arrived without reservations for breakfast. The place was packed but there was seating on the second floor at the 'bar'. After ascending the tight, winding staircase (typical in ancient Belgian buildings) we settled at the counter that overlooks the pastry display shelves below. the upper floor... More

Having seen the reviews on trip advisor and after a trip to the castle and on the river we decided we needed a refreshing drink and cake on a hot day, and we made the perfect choice at Julies. All the cakes were fresh and tasty - we had cupcakes, the creme brulee cake, and fruit cake. We all had... More

I ordered a piece of blueberry cheesecake, and a slice of frangipane cake with pistachio and cherry -- with an 'iced' chai latte... The blueberries were delicious, was not a cheesecake though. The frangipane tasted of egg and very little else, and the chai latte had an ice cube and was made from a power that tasted nothing of chai.... More

We stopped at Julie's House while strolling around Ghent for a quick coffee and a slice of cake. Staff were lovely and home baked pastries we had were simply delicious. Coffee also very tasty, loved the place and will go back if I have a chance.

Julie's House was recommended to us by one of the people at a soap shop from where we were buying souvenirs. I had a coffee craving and my wife wanted cake. So, we walked into Julie's House. We got a capuccino, a green tea and a raspberry cheesecake. We were given a table upstairs. Julie's House is actually a very... More

It is just hard to believe that there have a chocolate cake that actually makes you being obsessive with the tastes and the texture. I completely forgot my girlfriend was in front of me. It is that good!

I am giving them a 5 for service. When I was overseas, I organized surprise birthday cupcakes for my boyfriend and Jullie's House were super supportive. They even made special hearts for us. :) However, for the actual "Jullie's House" experience, it rates a bit less. I have visited Jullie's House with friends and family, and it has been hit... More

Julie's House is supposed to be THE cupcake place in Ghent. You can also get other sweets there and even sit down for a coffee, but I was on a mission to get a Red Velvet cupcake to go. It was a weekday morning when my mom and I went in. My mom pointed to a chocolate cupcake and I... More
