Just to have a chat drinking some hot milk chocolate
or for a nice meal, De Werf has always something nice to eat and the atmosphere is quite interesting

“Budget friendly, good wraps and good desserts.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

I usually have the chicken wrap here, but there are also pasta dishes and chowders. The pasta is good, but somewhat pricy compared to the other meals. The desserts are classic Belgian ones: petit beurre cake, chocolate mousse, strawberries with ice cream, fruit salad... In the summer there is homemade iced tea and in the winter you can have chocolate milk or tea, which is all quite good.

“Great budget option”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

TripAdvisor calls this a "gastropub". It's not. It's a student hangout in a very pleasant location, with good value, hearty food, cheap beer and friendly staff. I had a chilli con carne wrap (told you it was student food) and a Stella Artois for 7 EUR.

A limited card, but a very good price/quality value.
A little bit alternative but a very nice atmosphere.
During summer, a lot of outside tables.
Only open during weekdays !!

“Nice place”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Nice place, somewhat eccentric and alternative. It's always full (including the outside tables in summer) so be sure to go in time and don't expect to find space for large groups.

The food is good, the deserts are great and the prices are decent. Apart from regular beverages, they also serve interesting home-made fruit juice mixes, teas and other warm drinks.

Try the "petit-beurre taart" (cake made of cookies and cream), it's very heavy but it's delicious! Note that this place is closed in the weekends except in summer.
