Lunch break in PLUS+

It’s July, my oh my, I have a hard time believing it. Is it just me or is time really faster the older you get? Nothing to do about it I guess. Well with July come the sales and on Saturday me and my sister went to snoop around the stores a bit. When it was time for lunch we wanted something quick and healthy and I wanted something that fits in my eating program, so we went to PLUS+ where they only serve fresh food prepared with organic ingredients.

Breakfast in Alice’s hidden garden

There are too little weekends, or they are too short, or I’m just too busy. Anyway, I’m lacking weekends when I have time to go at ease to the center and have a nice breakfast. And when I do have time the weather is shitty. So here I am posting about a place, where I went almost a month ago and dreaming about when am I going to do it again. It was that weekend when it felt like summer was here, but sadly that feeling was short-lived and now it actually feels like the summer is already over and it’s autumn, cold, rainy, grey, totally sucky (is that even a word?).  Continue reading “Breakfast in Alice’s hidden garden”

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”

Peaberry coffee bar

A couple of weekends ago I was in the centre of Ghent with my sister and we wanted to grab a quick coffee. I had a list of coffee bars I still want to visit and the closest was Peaberry coffee bar, so there we went. The place itself is really nice, I love the turquise color theme that appears on tables, pillows plates and cups. It doesn’t have a classic cosy athmosphere, but it has a relaxed, more upbeat, clean style. Continue reading “Peaberry coffee bar”

Brunch in Boom

A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon a Facebook page for a new brunch place in Ghent, with a very interesting concept. On their website it said you could only eat there if you made a reservation, which you could make after an invite (for which you just had to send an email), once there, everybody sits together at a big table, which gives you the chance to meet some new people. I was intrigued. Boom was not yet open when I first found out about it, but I immediately knew I wanted to try it out. I patiently waited for it to open and when they started to take reservations I quickly made one. Their concept is simple – healthy and natural. What you get are delicious vegetarian dishes made with seasonal produce. Their menu is set and changes every two months.   Continue reading “Brunch in Boom”

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. Continue reading “Sleepy breakfast in Julie’s house”

Breakfast at Gust

Those that know me, know how much I love my breakfast. Breakfast is my me time before the day starts, I want to have that 20 min (or longer in the weekend) when I can enjoy in my meal and read my book. I also love to go out for breakfast and brunch. I think I prefer to go out for a good breakfast than for a good dinner. I don’t know why, I think I like the atmosphere in breakfast places more. There are many nice breakfast places in Gent and last Saturday I visited Gust that opened in august.  Continue reading “Breakfast at Gust”
