Good value breakfast

A really good local cafe that served up some really good scrambled eggs on toast. The coffee was good, but not outstanding, in any case it was nice to have some local fare.

Lovely home baked accessories with tables and seats to enjoy a leisurely tea break tastes like the food my grandmother, bless her, used to make. Yummy

The service is terrible, I went there for breakfast, and I had to wait 30 minutes for them to ask what I wanted to order. I only got two tiny slices of bread with my charcuterie and it tasted like I could buy better in the supermarket. My friend's scrambled eggs were tasteless, and my soft boiled egg was hard... More

After a terrible lunch experience at one of the restaurants close to the canal, we wanted to conclude our day in gorgeous Ghent with some nice cake and warm drinks. A quick Google search led us to Julie's, and I'm so glad it did! This coffee shop, run by friendly tea-ladies, is set in a historic townhouse in the heart... More

Im in love with the place, I really like the atmosphere at the coffee. They also sell good hot chocolate and coffee, the cakes are fantasy. I just find a bit pity that they have as the main domain cup cakes and they are not really that tasty. They look very pretty but inside and the cream is quite chemical,... More

We prefer to try local food and drink when abroad, but couldn't resist this English-style tea shop we stumbled across just when it was time to take a break. And believe it or not, they serve proper tea. The cakes are the tops and the coffee's good, too. A quirky corner ideal for topping up in a smashing city.

Great atmosphere in this old house, where you are surrounded by nice, not pretentious cakes and sweets. We tried breakfast and brunch. Both great, you can choose from many options - from small, simple breakfast to delicious, gargantual options. Quality of the cakes is good, even coffie, hot chocolate or just bread and butter is on desired level. Service was... More
