Portions are really small and for 5€ a piece I expected something much better. The eclairs looked really bad, I saw better ones in Delhaize.

Incredibly good sweets! The coffee is so good also. But the best of all...The service! Both young ladies were so polite and had patience waiting us to decide what we wanted to eat!

This is a must visit if you are in Ghent. Exceptional desserts and very nice coffee. The desserts we tasted here were really unique and full of flavors. The staff is very helpful and polite.

This shop is the highlight of Ghent city in my opinion. The best chocolates or pralines I’ve ever tasted, very refined... But that’s not all, the macarons are delicious and better than the famous Laduree. And then the cakes and pastry... they look like art...More

The store is a bit out of the way from the main tourist area, but it'll be worth the extra walk. The dessert are refined and beautiful to look at. The taste is amazing and the mousse will melt in your mouth smoothly.

Had the most delicious vanilla eclair of my life at this shop! The chocolates are also wonderful, though a bit pricey. My girlfriend had the mocha eclair and loved it as well! Small shop, but very nice.

When you enter it looks like you are entering in a jewellery. At the main entrance there is a sign which is forbidding to take pictures (WHY?) and the decor is like a high class watch store. Their specialty are the macarons and some small...More
