Always my place to be when i'm in Gent but this time not a nice experience. No friendly welcome, chaos while serving breakfast, a rude waitress and very crowded so no comfortable place to sit. The chairs outside on the terrace get stuck between the pavement and all this finished by eating a dry cupcake and a tasteless ice tea... More

It locates in heart of Gent - near Gravensteen castle. Very good cakes & coffee. Have small sitting area as well but always crowded in the bakery.

The ladies working at the shop were immature and not professional. One was throwing things at the other while we waited for our coffee to be prepared. slice of cake was too sweet but it's because of the service that I will not return.

Stopped in for some pastries to go. I wish I had discovered this little bakery/cafe earlier so I could have sat down and enjoyed the ambiance. Great service, tasty treats and a beautiful location.

+ Delicious latte and cakes + cozy environment + Nice central neighborhood + Friendly staff + They offer free samples of some cakes, which does NOT happen in Belgium - Expensive compared to other places. Each piece of cake costs almost 5E. So we pay around 20E for 2 people each time we go there for coffee and cake.

Fairly easy place to find, not far from the city center. Picked up a few things for the evening at home. Looked to be mostly younger girls working there, kind of apparent in the service, but pleasant enough. As for the cakes: cheesecake was alright, a bit too long in the oven. Rocky road not really my kind of thing,... More
