The staff are really helpful and speak good English. The bitter hot chocolate with over 70% cocoa is absolutely delicious! Served with a small piece of brownie and a warm smile... Great place for couples and for a rest on the way to the castle...

An authentic brunch spot hidden away from Ghent's touristic center. Love the vintage-inspired interior, ideal to sit back and relax with a hot cocoa and a great book. Do make sure to make a reservation: we've been sent away before because they were fully booked.

Cozy, welcoming, and quaint eateries. Went here for lunch, drawn by the name. The soup and bread that I ordered were lovely, and my partners cheese/ham platter vanished in no time. A welcome retreat from the rain, and a book lovers' haven!

I have been there more than once.. nice place, friendly personnel, perfect hot chocolate. Also good for breakfast on Sunday morning (but better reserve before, is always full!)

Got there around noon, a few people inside, but it was fairly quiet. Atmosphere is more "homey" and relaxing. Ordered bread with hummus, both very tasty, an egg each (also came with some bread) and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Afterwards we both had a hot chocolate...More
