“Great place for breakfast or lunch”

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.

Always a good bet to eat at Van Ghent. The best crepes in the state.
All foods are excellent quality, a homy atmosphere and pleasant waitstaff and owner.

“Yummy Crepes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

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.

“Refreshing breakfast place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

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 belgian waffles were crunchy and sweet and the price was right.A nice little find w/ low expectations and they did great. A really pleasant surprise and the whole belgian "thing" was authentic and real.

“A European flair, nice for breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

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 have sampled a vegetarian one, I just know it was very good. I have enjoyed going there several times. Good service and food.
