    Great cosy environment in the center of Gent. Great prices. Try the milk hot chocolate and buy chocolate with salt.Strongly recommended.

    Still my favourite place in the city to relax, or think and write. A home away from home. Really authentic and somewhat old fashioned place in a city with an overload of 'cool' coffee bars.

    You can basically choose everything on the menu and it will be great! Only thing I didn't like was the very old coffee/chocolate recipe from long ago.. It can be very busy; go upstairs. Wi-Fi as well.

    In the spring and summer the home made lemonade is my favorite, but during winter? The wake up call with milk or white chocolate. Comfort, yummmmm and a shot of coffee in one cup.

    Best cozy place in the city for many things: chocolate (of course), quiet work on laptop, reading a newspaper, brunch/breakfast/coffee/reading, 2nd hand books, and doing interviews. Very friendly too.

    Jammer dat er geen pannenkoeken of spek te krijgen is.Zeer lekker brood en de smeerpasta op basis van hazelnoten lijkt op de vulling van KinderBueno!
