Great place for lunch

We had a lovely lunch here with the family. We all had sandwiches. My ruben was excellent. My daughter's grilled cheese and ham was also very tasty. The cost was modest and the service prompt and personal. I would come here again.e

The Van Ghent Cafe is our go-to breakfast (and occasionally lunch) spot). It is an adorable, quaint little place with fun, eclectic decorations. The food and service is always top-notch. It is always fresh and prepared to order. The owner, Ebba, puts her heart and soul into her work and it shows. Kathy always provides friendly service and is attentive... More

My husband and I were visiting Westerly for the first time, for Virtu Art Festival in beautiful Wilcox Park; afterwards we decided to get a bite to eat, and came upon Van Ghent Cafe. What a wonderful, cozy place this is. Our waitress Kathy was very attentive and pleasant, and let us take our time and decide what we wanted... More

Friendly staff and owner who care about their customers. Menu is a mixture of traditions and fun different choices. They are hard working and their love for the community shows in their conversations with their customers.

Although it's only open on Wednesday through Sundays, it is worth the wait. Their selection of crepes is great and their ingredients seemed fresh.

Rarely are we in the Westerly area for breakfast but we were right downtown on an early Sunday morn and had a very good breakfast here. Fairly small place with what looked like just 1 waiter and the cook but they did well. Coffe was piping hot and freshly brewed, they refreshed our water glasses 5 or 6 times, their... More

If you like Belgian waffles and crepes, this restaurant is for you. They are authenic waffles so a little crunchier than those you make in a waffle iron at home, but nice taste. And who doesn't love a nice crepe with fruit, or for a luncheon sandwich specialty. I think the lunch one I tried was lemon chicken. I may... More

Great sandwiches and crapes. Only one cook on so the food was slow to come out although the quality and presentation made up for that. Would go back again.
