Hot chocolate and breakfast in Huize Colette

Days are passing me by so fast lately, I can’t believe we’re almost mid January. How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along? Do you have any? I normally don’t, but this year I kind of do. I would like to learn better Dutch, pick up with my French, not be an impulsive shopper that much, practice piano more, so that I don’t forget it all and make more time to Skype with friends and family. We’ll see how it will go, but I think universe will have to give me more free time, otherwise things will get a bit complicated.

Trenutno letijo dnevi mimo mene s svetlobno hitrostjo, ne morem verjet, da smo že sredi januarja. Kako se kaj držite vaših novoletnih zaobljub? Sploh imate kakšno? Jaz jih ponavadi nimam, letos pa dajmo reč, da ja. Rada bi se bolje naučila nizozemščine, nadaljevala z učenjem francoščine, prenehala z impulzivnimi nakupi, več časa vadila klavir, da ne pozabim vsega kar sem se naučila v glasbeni šoli, in rada bi si vzela več časa za Skype s prijatelji in družino. Bomo videli, kako bo šlo, mislim pa, da mi mora neka višja sila podariti več prostega časa, saj bodo sicer stvari precej zakomplicirane.

The free time I have now, I gladly spend on breakfasts in town. This time me and my partner in crime (my sister) went to Huize Colette. It’s one of my favourite places in Ghent to go to in the winter. This is a special place, it’s known for their hot chocolates, they are delicious, you can choose between fondant, milk or white chocolate as a base and pick up your favourite extra. My favourite is white chocolate with praline cream, it’s super yummy. It’s a place where you can go to spend some time in and read a book or work on you computer. If you don’t have your own book with you, you can always pick one from the shelves, it’s like a mini library.

Tisti prosti čas, ki ga imam, rada namenim zajtrkovanju v mestu. Tokrat sva se s sestro odpravili v Huize Colette. To je prav poseben lokalček, znan je po odličnih vročih čokoladah, izbereš si lahko osnovo – temna čokolada, mlečna ali bela čokolada in najljubši dodatek. Moja najljubša je bela čokolada s praline kremo, za prste polizat. Tu se z lahkoto lahko ugnezniš za nekaj časa ob prebiranju knjige ali delu za računalnikom. Če nimaš svoje knjige, si lahko kakšno izbereš kar tam, police so jih polne, kot v kakšni miniaturni knjižnici.

You can choose from a couple of breakfast menu’s or pick a couple of things you like. We were not super hungry,  so we went for bread with hummus and prosciutto, a croissant with a side of jam and buonumore spread and a piece of chocolate cake (they do say that the best time to eat dessert is for breakfast). Everything was really good, I really loved the hummus and the buonumore spread, some kind of hazelnut praline spread, was delicious (I will try to copy it at home). We did have an chocolate overdose after the cake and hot chocolate, but nobody ever died from it right?

Izbiraš lahko med različnimi zajtrk meniji ali si izbereš le nekaj stvari, ki so ti všeč. Midve nisva bili zelo lačni, zato sva se odločili za kruh s humusom in pršutom, rogljiček z marmelado in buonumore namazom ter kos čokoladne torte (pravijo, da je najbolj primeren čas za sladice zjutraj). Vse je bilo res dobro, humus mi je bil še posebej všeč in namaz buonumore, nekakšna krema iz lešnikovega pralineja, je slasten (morem ga poizkusiti narediti doma). Moram reči, da sva se s čokoladno torto in vročo čokolado fanj predozirali s čokolado, ampak saj od tega ni še nihče umrl kajne?

This is a great place if you want to slow down, enjoy a delicious cup of steamy hot chocolate in a relaxing atmosphere. It’s perfect for those cold, grey and rainy days, but it wouldn’t be my first pick in the summer. So if you have some time, take a friend or a good book with you and go cosy up in Huize Colette.

To je odlično zavetje pred hitrim vsakdanom, tu se sprostiš in uživaš ob vroče čokolade. Odlična lokacija med tistimi mrzlimi, sivimi in deževnimi dnevi, med poletjem pa ne bi bila moja prva izbira. Torej, če imate čas pojdite v Huize Colette in v dobri družbi, s prijatelji ali knjigo, pozabite na skrbi.
