One thing everyone wants to experience in Belgium is their waffles. This place has fantastic waffles (and hot chocolate). Some of their more decadent waffles are around 6€. The hot chocolate is good as is, but they also have more adult options available.

This is a very friendly, cozy cafe right in the heart of the city with multiple menus in various languages. We came for breakfast, had waffles, of course, and they were lovely as was the coffee.

Nice place for a quick stop. Staff is friendly, delicious gluhwein. Took a sandwich, bread was pretty delicious, same for filling. But I wish they put some more ingredients.

Welcome was correct from the lady of the house, a bit less from the husband. Music was TOO LOUD and I asked to reduce the volume so that we could talk normally to each other and this was done by the lady. Music should be background and not "noise polluting"! We first received a glass of Cava(bubbles) then an orange... More

This little place is absolutely perfect with delicious food - I enjoyed it so much I went back the following day. On my first morning in Ghent I went out on a mission to find waffles for breakfast. Much to my dismay I discovered that here they are considered much more of a breakfast food, and couldn't find anywhere willing... More

Great location in the middle of the city, has a nicer look and feel to it, but frequented by all kinds of people, it seems. Both young and old couples as well as families stopped by while we were there. Ordered waffles with fruits, both very much to our liking. The waffle crisp, light and tasty, different fruits fresh and... More

You would think it would be easy to find Waffles in Ghent, however beware, waffles are generally considered an afternoon snack and not a breakfast food. As a result, it seems that most places in Ghent don't serve waffles until, at the earliest 11AM with many not serving them until 2PM. With 2 children aged 10 and 13 hell bent... More
