Had a lovely breakfast outside in the sunshine. There are different breakfast choices such as eggs and toast, pancakes, croissants, ham and cheese. Def recommend. The cakes also look delicious but didn't have enough room to try them!

After wasting 20th mins standing reading the menu we were told that the next sitting wasn't for 40mins and even for that we needed a reservation. Didn't really seem interested in offering a reservation and there was literally no signage about set sitting times

As I'm lactose intollerant, it's not always easy to find cakes. Here you can find lots of them which are lactose free. Super! It's small and can be a little chaotic but the excellent sweets make up for it!

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.

I think the closest car park is the one underneath the Vrijdagsmarkt, which is only a 10 minute walk from Julie's. A lot of people park at Flanders Expo and take Tram 1 to the center as well. The stop for Julie's is... More
