Very Belgian

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.

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).

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
