My go-to place for cupcakes (try the speculoos flavor!) or brunch with the girls. I always opt for the Sweet & Salty Breakfast which comes with egg & toast, bread with cheese & ham, a scone with cream & jam and an American pancake. Do note that they only serve larger breakfasts on Fri, Sat & Sunday!

I had read of this tea room in a travel article whilst still in Australia and put it on my "to do" list. I'm glad I did as I found a delightful shop staffed with lovely people. We were refuelling as we wandered this fascinating city and really enjoyed sitting upstairs looking out at the hustle of the street and... More

This is great little place for a Belgium breakfast. Don't go expecting a western/American style. Best food is Cheese and meat with great bread and fantastic coffee. I thought it was good when we went one day but it proved itself to me the next day when we went back and our waitress on the first day as sitting at... More

There's always a line at Julie's House. That says enough. The cakes and sweets are simply amazing. Must visit when visiting Gent.

I would not call it a restaurant; it's more of a tearoom. The cakes are delicious. Service is slow but this is due to the great number of visitors to this rather small place. Definetely worth to have a tea and cake whilst visiting this beautiful city.

My wife and I spent hours in the rustic setting on top, gazing out the windows at the river and hustle-bustle of the streets below. Next sunny day will be outside on the street level tables.

'm not someone who likes to write bad reviews, but the only thing I can say about Julie's house is ... OK. Nothing more, nothing less. I've bought several. Not one I found fantastic. I've had better ones. I find the prices a bit on the high side. I've bought the cupcakes at the other location (Elisabethlaan). The girl was... More

I noticed Julie's a few days ago because of its old charm. I decided not to miss it after knowing its ranked #1 on tripadvisor! I asked for the cafes speciality, the friendly waitress recommended Moelleux, a dark chocolate tart. I'm not crazy about chocolate but the Moelleux was simply devine! I was seated upstairs. When my order was delivered,... More

Full of character, quaint little tea room, marvellous array of cakes. And you get free samples of rich chocolate tart. We were lucky to get seat for breakfast. I'd recommend booking. Up the windy stairs and we sat at the breakfast bar, as all the tables busy. It's charming intimate old tea room. I had salty breakfast: egg, soldiers, bread,... More
