We went to Julie's house for breakfast and although it is right next to the castle the cafe did not feel like a tourist trap. The atmosphere is lovely and homely. The staff were really friendly and looked after us and our two little kids...More

Cramped seating area, marginal service, ran out of croissants by noon, and will only take credit cards. Lacking so much, but they make a mean cappuccino! One of the best I've had.

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
