“As authentic as it can be”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Ignore the hipster Starbucks next door: this is the place where the people from Gent go for coffee. Next to their high quality range of coffee they also serve some great waffles.

“Delicious waffles.”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

In this place I ate the best waffle I have tasted so far! It is very well located, just behind Starbucks. I did not eat inside the coffee house, instead I chose to eat outside, as they have a take away booth and it is quite big the difference of the price.
The waffle was super fresh and delicious!

“Great Coffee”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

I went to this place which is located directly behind the Starbucks for a quick coffee. Among the best I've had. The lady was very pleasant and there were interesting locals starting their day. Great spot.

“Great waffles, coffee fair”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Went here after trying to find a place to escape cold wet day. Good atmosphere we ordered coffees, waffle with fruit and a croissant. Coffee was fair, not the worst I've had but definitely not the best. My friend got the waffle with fruit and it was exceptional. Croissant was good.
