Fresh warm croissants directly from the oven. Oh that sweet smell when the waitress passes us with the tray - melts hearts! Big choice of set breakfasts/brunches. A bit pricy but still you are sitting in the heart of Antwerp so you should expect that. Relaxed place to read your magazine on a Sunday.

Customer service is good, fast and responsive. Before bringing the food you order they also bring you a pan with either croissants and gem or bread and butter (depending of what you ordered i think, since we ordered beer - so we got bred and butter, and the table next to mine ordered tee and coffee - and they got...

The price seemed okay on the menu until you see the portion and the quality. The waitress got the wrong order although we double-checked with her. Since we could not understand Dutch, we pointed at the menu. She insisted that the one I ordered was the third one, when I pointed at the second. The waitress was extremely rude and... More

They have one of the best terraces in Antwerp here, shadowy and a perfect place for spotting locals and watching everyone go by. However, the drinks are quite pricy and the staff can be grumpy. Such a pity that they do not use the advantage more which they have by being at this location!

We just stopped to have some lunch but almost forced to leave the place as our daughter left her fingerprints on the windows. Selfish old people who hate children... This is not least but while we were leaving the place, I told them how rude they were and the man just were imitating me with his lips like a child.... More

This restaurant (so called) is for sure not a good address in Antwerpen. We were a group of 7 people. We had to wait almost 1h to be served. Every people around us recieved their dishes even though they arrived after us. Waiter was awful. When the bill came, he wanted one person to pay the full amount. We had... More

We stopped here for drinks to warm up on a cold October day. The service was so-so but the location is great and all the neighboring cafes were full. The waiters weren't overly friendly but our service was quick and the bitterballen were delicious. Another plus: clean bathroom.

Food not bad, nothing extraordinary, just average. Staff unfriendly and unpleasant. We were not even ask if we wanted anything to drink. Food arrived, without any drink.
