One of the best cafe in Antwerp. The price is pretty high but I dont mind with it as the quality excellent too. We had dine in and to go. The service is sometimes lousy and the cafe itself isnt really worthy to be mentioned. Packed and sometimes looks dirty.

I stopped in on the recommendation of a tour guide and was not disappointed. The saleswoman took her time to explain my options (I was looking to bring chocolate home to family) and ultimately picked a box and let her put a variety of chocolates in it. They held up through my travels and were quickly devoured at home. Great... More

Most people would go for the cakes and chocolates but I absolutely adore their cookies. Yes they are extremely expensive but so good. The round dark chocolate cookie with the pistachio nut crumble is to die for as well as their lemon butter cookie. Because they are expensive you really appreciate every bite.

We stepped in and were lucky to find a table. Lucky as it was foolish to go to this popular place without reservation. The food was excellent but the service was a bit hassled. The one dish on everyone's table was Warm Goat Cheese Salad and it was worth it. The main course were no less. Hot chocolate laced with... More

Quality of deserts are just above average, too sweet and rather expensive. Espresso is diluted (Italian coffee lovers stay away).

We came here for lunch without any reservation, and were quickly seated after a few minutes. We had the fish soup, quiche served with salad and scampi tagliatelle. It was a nice lunch however, I find the personnel was a bit grumpy and unfriendly. Considering its an international atmosphere, I would hope for a better service. So that is a... More

No help for 10 minutes and when I finally got help she was quite unfriendly. No gloves handling the chocolate and I was rushed although it wasn't busy. The grand cru hot chocolate was overrated. Watered down with no flavor. Not worth it at all with so many other high quality shops in Belgium
