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).

When I was a student at the KU Leuven University, I regularly dropped by at De Werf for lunch, dinner or just drinks. But in recent years I have to admit, I preferred other places. This summer however, one evening I ended up with a friend on the terrace of De Werf. The terrace has continue to grow over the years and now it is really huge. The formula however hasn't changed one bit: you still can press your own orange juice, you still can have breakfast at a very affordable price and the petit beurre cake is as popular as ever. The menu after all these years looked still very familiar and prices remained reasonable.

I would say: don't expect grand culinary surprises. De Werf is a place for simple snacks or just to enjoy some drinks with friends and snuggle under the fleece covers if it gets a bit chilly on the terrace. On a beautiful summer evening, that's all it takes.

I went here with friends. My food was pretty ok, I had a tasty chili con carne in bread (chowder), and together with drinks (beer) and a desert, it set me back for about 15 euro. Good price/quality relation. My girlfriend was less enthousiast about her very dry and tasteless pasta. The way of serving is original but not always stylish nor comfortable. Like panini, which is served in a nig plastic lunchbox.
I would recommend this venue for unsophisticated food with a cosy terrace.

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.
