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.

Good selection of cakes, had a lovely cuppa and a slice of something local which I can't remember the name of but it was chocolate so what's not to like? Pop in and see for yourself the breakfast looked good too.

The bakery is a the central part of Ghent and from the window and when you get in the bakery/restaurant the pasteries, cupcakes, brownies, etc look delectable. We purchased a brownie and a small cake and were very disappointed! The items were so dry that we threw them away and were very frustrated we paid over 10 euros for the... More

We just popped in to buy something to eat whilst sightseeing but the tables in the small shop all appeared to be busy. Lots of interesting cakes and bakes which obviously look home-made although the cupcakes didn't look too appetising. Would highly recommend Grandma's Apple Pie though - lightly-spiced caramelised apple chunks in buttery pastry.

The place is very cute but cupcakes are nothing special, raw pastry and too sweet. Good for a stop in cold weather, but don't expect quality desserts as they claim.

After going there a couple of times, I find it hard to understand why their cupcakes are so special. Dry and without taste, I found them overly expensive for what we were getting. The service is also something to feel annoyed about. Quite often they employ probably students, who want simply to work, but who have no passion at all... More
