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... read 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!

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

If you want to have a delicious cupcake or a fine piece of cake, Julie's House is the place to be. The only thing I found disappointing was there overpriced, not so flavorful iced tea you can get in the summer. I had the Mojito ice tea, and you couldn't taste the difference between an mint tea or the mojito... More

Read all about Julie's on Trip Advisor so it had to be worth a go........ Get there early!! by the time we got there what they had was limited , however what they did have was lovely. Kind of a catch 22 really, victims of their own success that they can't keep up with deman. Still if you're in town,... More

The food was nice and everything but we weren't acknowledged AT ALL by staff for like 10 minutes and then when they finally came to us the conversation was as follows: "Can I have a vanilla cupcake please?" "We don't have any, that's why I told you to look at the cakes" (come on how was I meant to know... More

Julie's House is a lovely little bakery situated in Ghent. Food can be taken away or eaten in. There are a mixed selection of cakes on offer which are freshly made so once they are gone, they are gone. It's a very busy little place so getting a seat may be difficult but I imagine turnaround is very quick. We... More

Waited for 20 minutes before someone came and took our order. I took almost 20 minutes after that before we got the coffee and even longer before we got the food. Average taste. Poor value, tiny portions. I was still hungry when I left, and paid 15 euros..

In all honesty, I'm normally a fan of the full English breakfast! I never thought I'd say this but my former breakfast favourite has been beaten by a continental taster menu of breakfast delights. This place was something else entirely! The french toast with sugar and cinnamon was the pick of the selection, rounding of a fine selection of cheeses,... More

Great breakfast and cakes. Wide variety of pastries, cupcakes, pies. Reasonable prices! Slice of cake around 3-4 euros, coffee for 2. chai latte 3.5 euros. Worths a visit.
