We were pleasantly surprised with the Mediterranean lunch: three dips, flat bread, falafels, kibbeh, salad, and tabbouleh for €16. The place is very simple and small, but very well located. Staff was friendly and casual.

the nice atmosphere is gone, no organic products anymore, no friendly service, dirty toilets, not enough food, waiting a very long time, and we paid way too much! I really don't recommend it to anyone, waste of time and money :(

Charming place, cosy atmosphere, familial kitchen, delicious food! I can only recommend you to stop here, if there is a spot free (however you can try Club Reserva a few meters away), for a coffee, snacks, brunch...family (+ stroller) welcomed!!

Food ok, but nothing special. Single glazed windows, it was a cold day outside, and it was uncomfortably cold inside as well... A bit pricy for what you get... But you are in the centre of Ghent, so what can you expect...

I had mint tea, a croissant, and an egg. Liked: - Location - The menu is sufficient, with combinations such as mini breakfast, breakfast, and two breakfast types with... More

Although maybe not really "alternative" - they probably bake more or less like everybody else - this small and always cramped bakery / cafe with it's wooden tables and chairs of different makes, in an old building close to everything in the old town of Ghent, is different and cozy. We were in room number one, above the cafe, a... More

We felt pretty lucky to find a room at such short notice in this great location. I wouldn't normally choose apple green for a wall colour but it suited the style and the room was very spacious. Good breakfast with helpful & friendly owners. I prefer to have en suite toilette - but it was a small compromise. The location... More

Located in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in Belgium right by the water, across from a museum, and next door to one of the most artistically beautiful flower shops I have ever been to! Delicious organic coffee and a nice healthy breakfast are served in the cafe below - except on Mondays. Various rooms are available... More

The Brooderie is downtown - fabulous location. The owner was hospitable and the breakfast was great. Warning! The room was smelly and there was a lot of noise all night long (being right in the centre of Ghent - you can't expect anything but!).
