I heard you could get the best chocolate milk of Gent here, and me being a chocolate addict just had to find that out for myself. Entering the bar I immediately felt at home: the interior is so cozy, with books everywhere, but what really made me melt was the Christmas tree built up with books... You have to order... More

during my visit to Gent, we passed by Huize Colette. Their hot chocolat is great and the chocolate cake was delicious. Love the books in this café.

Located close to the city hall Huize Colette is a cute little place to sit down for a cup of hot chocolate and a read. The place is a lovely respite from a day of walking. There is a large selection of second hand books that you can pick up both in English and Dutch. If you bring in your... More

Best white hot chocolate I've tasted. Milk hot chocolate lovely too. Scones tastey, carrot cake a wee bit dry and cold. Very friendly and pleasant staff. Toilet privacy questionable through 'stained glass window' when light is on.

Their hot chocolate is the best in town. I love their bitter hot chocolate (%70 chocolate). You can have a choice to have milk-based or almond-based hot chocolate. For some variety, try the special hot chocolate drink recipe from the 17th century -hofdrankjie- which is a water-based chocolate drink mixed with a blend of spices. It is served in a... More

We stopped in on a cold, blustery day and the whole mood of the place warmed us up. The hot chocolates were fantastic, served on silver platters with little cookies. The price was very reasonable. The furniture is eclectic and they have a bunch of books for patrons to peruse.... Or even borrow, briefly. Make sure to check out the... More

We loved discovering this lovely literature and chocolate cafe! They specialise in delicious hot chocolates, so you can sip your drinks while poring over books, catching up with friends or (in our case) planning where our next stop would be! Really friendly staff and very helpful.
