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

My go-to place for cupcakes (try the speculoos flavor!) or brunch with the girls. I always opt for the Sweet & Salty Breakfast which comes with egg & toast, bread with cheese & ham, a scone with cream & jam and an American pancake. Do note that they only serve larger breakfasts on Fri, Sat & Sunday!

I had read of this tea room in a travel article whilst still in Australia and put it on my "to do" list. I'm glad I did as I found a delightful shop staffed with lovely people. We were refuelling as we wandered this fascinating city and really enjoyed sitting upstairs looking out at the hustle of the street and... More
