Fancy brunch in Chocolato

How do you like coupons? I love coupons, I am very happy when I can get stuff for free or cheaper as usual. So when I saw a cupon for a “Luxurious brunch in Gent” I had to get it. This luxurious brunch took place in Chocolato. This is a chocolate shop and coffee place, but apart from that they also give different chocolate related (duh!) workshops. I was very excited about it and this time Laurens sacrificed his free time to join me (it didn’t go without his comments though “You do know I’m only doing that for you!?” and the like). But not even Mr. Grinch can ruin my excitement before a brunch. After it, it’s a different story and that day the culprit of my annoyance was extremely strong front wind when cycling home (FYI this is a constant mood breaker in my life).

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. Continue reading “Hot chocolate and breakfast in Huize Colette”

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. Continue reading “Cosy breakfast in Maaltecorner”

Sleepy breakfast in Julie’s house

Julie’s house is one of the most known places in Ghent. It’s a place where you get your cupcake and cake fix and that fix is delicious. So when I heard that you can go and have breakfast at Julie’s I was all up and running (well not literally, because I don’t really run). I was prepared this time and made a reservation, you can call or just fill out a form on their website. I of course filled out a form, because, despite the fact that in person I am almost never shy, I am super uncomfortable with talking to people on the phone.
