Their opening hours already suggest it: it's a typical student place in Leuven, not a tourist place as are many places in Leuven. Food is good there and compared to other places relatively cheap. Also the drinks are good there. Especially in the summer months...More

Perfect place if you are hungry and in need of a quick but very decent meal. They have got lots of special things on the menu (I won't spoil the surprises here) and have a nice terrace outside and even give blankets when it's chilly....More

Very average food, but the coffee is hot and plentiful. They serve their large coffee in a thermos (you can take it to class if you ask nice and bring it back).

This restaurant is known in Leuven to be focussing on students. menu is very cheap and the desserts and wraps etc are very good. I don't like the pastas as much to be honest. Good location and overall good quality/price balance. Portions are rather big.
