Ghent is possibly my favorite city in all of Belgium. I first visited it four years ago and have since been coming back a few times a year. Nowadays the goal of my visit has become visiting a dear friend of mine but I always try to stop by my favorite place in all of Ghent. And that place is the tea room Huset. I have in fact mentioned Huset in one of my previous blog posts about cafés in Ghent. But I always felt like it deserved its own blog post being one of my favorite places ever.

Huset is probably the coziest tea room I ever stumbled upon with all its sofas and armchairs. Its name actually comes from the Swedish word for house, which makes complete sense once you step inside. The seating style is mismatched and old-fashioned but somehow fits together perfectly. The interior of the tea room is that of a charming old house with two adjoining rooms. Your eyes can’t help but look up towards the beautiful plastering and vintage chandeliers. The comfy interior invites you in and you just want to spend the entire day there. Sitting in a corner all by myself and writing about how poignant this place is. In fact, this feels like the dream job location, if you ask me!

I can’t imagine a lovelier interior to spend your days in, except maybe Comptoir Florian but I’ll get to my other favorite tea room in another post. The great thing about Huset is the fact that it is so much more than simply a café. On specific evenings, Huset opens its doors for concerts held on the piano you see in the photos. Sadly, I have never witnessed one but I hope to do so one day. Sitting among that beautiful furniture and listening to classically trained singers sounds like a lovely romantic evening to me!

The one thing that pulls me the most towards Ghent is actually this tea room! I find it to be incredibly inspiring which sometimes makes me wish I lived closer to Ghent. Too bad that would mean learning another language, just when I got the hang of French! Anyhow, if you’re ever in Ghent, wander off the main square and stop by Huset for tea or a vegan cake, they have a wide menu. The furniture and decorations change with time so every time I drop by, everything is in a different place. If you look at the photos, you can notice the change. With its eclectic and unique style that still feels snug and warm, Huset is by far my favorite place in Ghent and I am looking forward to the next time I visit!
