Cosy breakfast in Maaltecorner

I went to great lengths to get to this place. Once, when I was taking the bus to the airport, I spotted a house next to the road, it stood out because of its roof. It’s a thatch roof, not something you see often. It looked super cute and while driving past it I just managed to see a sign in front that said that they serve breakfast. Well you can imagine I needed to put this place on my have-to-try-it-out list. But there was a little problem – I missed the name.So I went to Google maps and used the street view in order to see that sign again, but the photos were from before the place existed, the house was there, but no sign. So I used the little orange Google man to stalk a bit around the neighbourhood and managed to get the address of the house. I googled the address and, luckily enough, found the restaurant in Gouden Gids (online phone/address book). And this is how found out about Maaltecorner.

Res sem se morala potruditi, da sem našla ta bistro. Ko sem se pred nekaj meseci z avtobusom peljala na letališče sem ob cesti zagledala hišo, izstopala je, ker je imela slamnato streho in te niso nekaj vsakdanjega. Zdela se mi je izredno luškana in v času ko smo se peljali mimo, mi je uspelo videti pano, na katerem je pisalo, da strežejo zajtrk. No, lahko si predstavljate, da sem ta lokalček morala vključiti na moj to-moram-probat seznam. Pri tem sem pa imela majhen problem – ime mi je ušlo. Ni panike, šla sem na Google zemljevide in uporabila cestni pogled, da bi videla pano, ker pa so bile slike starejše kot bistro, je moj načrt padel v vodo. Uporabila sem malega oranžnega Google možička, da je malo zalezoval po soseski in hitro sem našla naslov hiše. Naslov sem zgooglala in na srečo ime bistroja našla v Gouden Gids (spletni imenik). No, dolga zgodba o tem kako sem odkrila Maaltecorner

So last weekend I finally went there with a couple of friends. It’s not in the center of Ghent, which is perfect if you’re coming by car. And it’s great for me, because it’s closer. Oh and you know what is also great, they open at 8 a.m. I’m an early bird and I often wake up with a very loud stomach saying: “Come on human, wake up, I want food!”, so waiting until 10 a.m (the average opening time in the weekends) to eat is sometimes hard.

Prejšnji teden sem končno šla tja z dvema prijateljicama. Ni v centru Genta, kar je super, če prihajaš z avtom in zame, ker mi je bližje. O, in veste kaj je še super, odprejo ob 8:00. Jaz sem jutranji tip in se pogosto zbudim zgodaj z zelo glasnim želodcem, ki kriči “Daj no človek, zbudi se, hočem hrano!”, tako da čakanje do 10:00 (povprečen odpiralni čas med vikendom) ponavadi ni najlažja stvar.

The inside is super cosy, I loved it, they even have a fire place, it would be so nice to go there once when the fire is on, or sit on their terrace on a warm sunny morning (I’ll have to wait until next year for that). We went there for a breakfast, but they also serve lunch and waffles and pancakes in the afternoon (have to go there once for that). They had 3 breakfast menus for (I think) 7, 12 or 18 eur. The price is more than fair for what you get. The menus include all the basic breakfast foods, so if you want something special, this place is not for you. We went for the slow breakfast that was 12 eur and came with egg, bread (we got a whole loaf for 3 people), ham and cheese, 2 pieces of breakfast pastry (croissant/pain au chocolat/raisin roll) – normal size, not mini, butter, jam and Nutella, yogurt with muesli, coffee or tea and fresh orange juice.

Breakfast at Maaltecorner
Notranjost je bila prijetna in udobna, res mi je všeč, imajo tudi kamin in zelo rada bi šla enkrat tja, ko bo prižgan, z veseljem bi pa tudi uživala na terasi na topel sončen dan (za to bom morala čakati do naslednje spomladi). Tja smo šle na zajtrk, a strežejo tudi kosila in popoldne se lahko tja odpraviš na palačinke in vaflje (enkrat si jih bom privoščila). Na izbiro imajo 3 zajtrke po 7, 12 ali 18 evrov. Cena je poštena za to kar dobiš. Meniji vključujejo osnovno hrano za zajtrk, tako da če si želiš kaj posebnega, ta bistro ni zate. Izbrale smo si “počasen” zajtrk, ki je bil 12 eur in vključeval jajce, kruh (me 3 smo dobile celo štruco), šunko in sir, 2 kosa peciv (rogljič/čokoladni žepek/polž z rozinami) – normalne velikosti, ne mini, maslo, marmelado in Nutello, jogurt s kosmiči, kavo ali čaj in svež pomarančni sok.

I am super happy that I found this place and I really enjoyed it there. I would definitely recommend it. I’m looking forward to going there again, next time maybe for lunch and a pancake!

Until next time! K.
