As you might remember, I wrote about Ghent here not so long ago. It’s one of my favorite Belgian cities and I’ve visited it countless times. And as a result of that, I discovered lots of lovely cafés.

They all share the same traits: they’re extremely cozy, they have beautiful interiors and amazing food and drinks. Therefore, I wanted to introduce you to a few of my favorites in case you’re ever headed to Ghent.

Julie’s House

Amazing pies and cute cupcakes in a charmingly small interior that could easily be mistaken for one from the medieval times, with its old wooden doors, narrow stairs, and iron windows.

Julie’s House has become a classic spot by now but for a good reason and I heartily recommend it!

Huize Colette

I still remember seeking shelter from the rain in this cozy place 2 years ago. I felt like I had walked into somebody’s apartment because I was surrounded by sofas and rows and rows of books.

In fact, you can take any of the books from the shelves and enjoy a lovely reading session. And you will find books literally (!) every step of your way.


Alice is the kind of place where you’ll walk through its door and immediately feel like you’ve been transported to the 18th century.

Alice, Ghent

Pink interior with french windows that bring in lots of light and even a fireplace. What more could you need? Maybe amazing food but no worries; Alice has got that covered too!

When a little bit of googling gets you to discover your favorite café in Ghent. That’s how I happened to stumble onto Huset. Honestly, if I was living in Ghent, I can tell you with certainty that I would be spending way too much time here!

In fact, the second I walked into it, I could just see myself spending hours there. I was inspired to find a cozy corner and write for hours on end.

I hope some of these caught your attention so that if you ever find yourself in Ghent, you feel a bit less lost. Or even better, if they made you want to visit Ghent in the first place!
