We decided to eat an early dinner in the Central Cafe after a days sight seeing. I ordered a croque madame with chips and my husband ordered steak with chips, the chips were unlimited so we could order more if we wanted - which we did! This restaurant takes coach parties and we managed to finish our meal, pay and... More

Pretty little restaurant located on the main square. Meals are reasonably priced and delicious. Very friendly staff with good English. Local cuisine and local beers. Coffee is good too. Nice setting and will be back, next time in Ypres.

Ideal place for a quick lunch as its seconds away from the Flanders Fields War museum which was where we were going. The Central Cafe is situated right in the main square, if sitting out the front there is plenty to watch. Our sandwiches came really quickly once our order had been taken. Two toasties, one cheese and ham and... More

A good mid range venue with a bistro feel. The menu is very broad and service excellent. Prices are moderate especially for a restaurant on the town square. Very popular for breakfast.

I am visiting Ypres with my husband and in-laws and chose Central Cafe for dinner for our first day. When we arrived at about 8:15ish the place was rammed with a mixture of a school trip and couples settling down to dinner. There seemed to be one waitress, one barman and some unseen kitchen staff. Keeping all of this in... More

A cramped little cafe, I ordered a coffee and pate and toast as a snack,to my surprise Belgium had no Pate,The waitress was very apologetic so I ordered a cheese and ham sandwich It was good. Standard cafe clean and tidy.

Went here on our first day in Ypres. Our food was delicious and so filling. It was good value and the service good. So much choice on the menu I just didn't know what to pick. As it was so good we both decided we would use it again the next night, which is exactly what we did. Another great... More

Having been to many of the local restaurants in recent years I now return to this one every time. The food is sublime, the portions are large and the price is just right. The service is relaxed but in a good way and I wouldn't look to go elsewhere - 9th time here and I will return. Thank you.

Thank Joe5y
