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.

I was scared when I first walked in, because I thought the amount of tables being waited on would impact the serving time. I was delightfully proven wrong! The coffee came quickly and tasted superior to the coffee from most other breakfast places I've frequented. Understanding that food made with the freshest of ingredients can take a while, I was...

The old location and owners had an excellant breakfast . Today 5-13-2012 (mother's day), we waited for coffee extra long. The table cloth had spilled syrup which got very sticky when putting our hand on the table.Then we had to wait to order. The wait for food was long but I accept that as each waffle is supposed to be... More
