Pefect Red Velvet cupcake

We went there to buy cupcakes for friends birthday. Didn't stay there for too long. The place looked pretty small, but cosy enough. Bought 4 red velvet cupcakes and they were super delicious. They packed them in white super cute box, which looked very pretty. I heard about this place from some... read more

It's a cozy place and the cupcakes are okay, but nothing more. I find the cupcakes way too sweet and they often taste a bit dry. I've been here quite often with friends visiting Ghent (who really wanted to try these 'famous' cupcakes) and was never fully convinced. I prefer 'huize Collette' for a piece of delicious pie and a... More

We went for a late breakfast or brunch - about 11 on a Saturday morning - it was busy. It's a small place with limited seating but has plenty of character. The seemingly all female staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient. It clearly specialises in the most wonderful cakes and pastries, etc., however, I had a breakfast consisting of... More

So as I arrived in Gent all my coworkers talked about Julie's and how delicious it was, and how it was the most popular bakery and Gent and you had to make reservations weeks in advance. My experiences were as follows: Went with a friend to try one of the famous cupcakes. First, all the frosting were coloured butter frosting,... More

Third try. The first two reviews were deleted so I don't feel like rewriting the woke thing. In short: It's bad. Breakfast was awful. Pancakes were raw. The reason baked by Julies' minions: Students with no cooking experience. Service is bad. And the last time Julie smiled was probable 1968.

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).
