All in all; it was pretty good/average. But honestly I was expecting more.
Walking into the store, we immediately smelled a bad smell. Not something you want to smell walking into a cake shop..
Upstairs you sit down to get service at a table. Funky...old house with cute French furniture and decoration. The service was a bit disappointing too. First, the servants were talking with each other, hardly noticing us. And when a waitress came over and we had a question about what a certain cake was (because there weren’t any descriptions on the menu), the waitress said she couldn’t describe it and we should go downstairs to ask the staff behind the counter. But you work here, you sell & serve these products!
My chocolate milk wasn’t stirred, which made it harder to mix myself with the whipped cream. Some pies were good like the chocolate mousse cake others a bit disappointing like the citron crunch (not really crunchy). Even upstairs you can still smell the bad smell from downstairs a bit.
The portions are big. The pieces of pie were almost 1/4 pie!More
We popped in for a mid-morning stop on a cold morning. We were hoping to get a hot chocolate but they didn't serve that. Instead we went for "pimped up milk". Which to be fair is exactly what it says - milk with extras but...was not really the same as hot chocolate.
However it is a lovely cafe with a great atmosphere, quirky decoration and cakes to die for.More

Thank you so much for your review an the nice words about our cafe and cakes! The pimped milk is hot, full fat milk with drops of real belgian chocolate, so it's the realest hot chocolate you can have ;) It isn't extra sweetened or...More
We stayed just round the corner and having walked past a few times and seen the reviews we got takeaway cake one afternoon. Service was friendly and cake (lemon tart and choco pie) was absolutely delicious. Portions were generous.
Went back for breakfast and service...was ok. No one was rude, but no one was particularly friendly or helpful either. Breakfast felt expensive for what we got (half a slice of toast with the egg really seemed a bit mean) and we were really unimpressed to be charged extra for a different tea bag, especially since the first we knew was when the charge appeared on the bill. The food was fine, nothing more or less.
Went back a final time to get cake to takeaway because our first experience had been so good and both had a brownie. Same woman serving as the first time we went and she was again friendly and welcoming. The brownie was nice but perhaps a bit sweet for our tastes, it wasn't as good as the choco pie and the lemon tart and I wouldn't have it again.More

Dear Almo, how nice you came back 3 times! Thank you for that! It's a pitty we didn't wow you all of those 3 times. The additional cost of the tea must have been a mistake, that is not custom. We will solve this in...More
If you’re looking for somewhere to stop and have a coffee and cake, look no further! Just round the corner from the Gravensteen, along the river is this little gem! The staff are so friendly and the cakes are delicious. There’s a big variation and...they’re all home made in Ghent. Good to try Belgium chocolate pie and tarts! Upstairs seating with cosy feel. Good prices, we got 3 big portions of cakes and two coffees for €18. Definitely worth a try!More

Thank you so much, Lily! We love that you enjoyed your stay with us. Welcome back any time!
Found this delightful tea house by chance as we walked the delights of Ghent. Situated near the Gravensteen, just over the bridge across the Leie Channel, it was a great spot to people watch and have a lovely mid-morning tea / coffee and cake. It...just around the corner from the Yellow Umbrella Riverboat kiosk.
There is a wide choice of homemade cakes to choose from with tasters on offer as well as breakfast and varieties of tes and coffees. Served in quaint crockery, the lemon cream cake I had was sumptious whilst my 3 friends waxed - lyrical about the cheesecake. Whether you eat inside or out, this cashless tea house is well worth a visit. Highly recommended. Enjoy.More

Thank you so much for your lovely review. This means the world to us! Hope to see you again, Graham!
We stopped her for breakfast because of the cute decor and reasonable prices. They took my order for a cinnamon roll and tea but after a short wait I was brought a croissant and told there were no cinnamon rolls. I asked to swap for...a scone and jam and was brought a scone with clotted cream and my friend was given her breakfast with no cutlery. Then when we went to pay the card machine was not working despite there being a sign saying ‘no cash - only card.’ Understaffed with two young ladies who were polite but I wouldn’t go back or recommend. Also wasps all over the table (I know this isn’t their fault but not a nice atmosphere for eating!)More

Dear Kayleigh, we are very sorry to read this. Of course this is not okay. We are doing everything we can to avoid all of this in the future.
I think the closest car park is the one underneath the Vrijdagsmarkt, which is only a 10 minute walk from Julie's. A lot of people park at Flanders Expo and take Tram 1 to the center as well. The stop for Julie's is... More
