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... read 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.

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

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
