Stopped for latte and cappuccino but couldn't resist having a baked item. My brownie was top notch. The red velvet cupcake was a bit dry and actually didn't quite taste like red velvet but I couldn't quite put my finger on the difference to the myriad of cupcakes I've had in California. But there were lot's of appealing options there... More

The cakes are as you (or your mom/granny) would make them at home but then you/they make them much better, the flavors and textures are not always correct. I find the cakes are often too sweet. I've tried several kinds, and was never convinced

Nice and cosy place to stop for a dessert or a cup of coffee/tea. Big and tasty selection of pastries and drinks. Only disadvantage: waiting to get a table, which can take a while on busy days.

This place had very delicious treats to snack on while walking around Ghent. The stairwell was a bit steep, but was built the same time as the Gravensteins castle. I enjoyed it and hope you will too.

We expected great things from Julie. Already, just looking at the window, we were drooling watching the cupcakes and other pies. A very charming tea house, Julie's House was very promising. Yet, when we got our orders upstairs, the tea was from a tea bag, the cupcakes were tiny and average, the pies were ordinary... The place was crowded with... More

Doll's house feel. Wonderful food and atmosphere. Many cakes and tarts to choose from with home made taste. Very English inspired. Great to meet friends and family but also romantic setting for couples. Near historic centre. Worth a visit.

I visited Julie's House in the late afternoon so naturally there were only a few sweets to choose from compared to the usual large selection. I liked the coffee and the cupcakes, however I would not recommend getting breakfast here. The pastries are beautiful, like in a real fairy tale cake shop. Cute place, easy to find. We had no...

If you want to have a dessert stop in the heart of Ghent, this is the place to go. The main disadvantage of this place is that you have to queue to get a table, which can be quite annoying on busy days. The place has a particular environment, very charming and cosy. The desserts are delicious.

My best advice:Buy a cake and in the little yard 100 metres more up the road!It's just wonderful. (In the little yard there's a cafè,I'm not sure if they mind or not you going with the cake) ANYWAY,the place was quite busy when we arrived,but I couldn't care less!The cake dispaly was a wonder and there were samples here and...
