Great waffles! We has the strawberry and cream and the simple one with butter, both very airy and fluffy not heavy at all. It's a bit more expensive as you have seats inside but definitely worth it.

In stead of overpriced hotel breakfasts, come here & enjoy the local fare. It's a modern café, with a friendly & efficient service. Light & crisp waffles, beautifully presented with fresh fruit & whipped cream. Good coffee too, so a perfect start to your day.

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.

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.
