The best coffee spots in Gent


No city trip without stopping at the finest coffee shops in town. These are the nicest coffee spots in Ghent. In addition to my own favorites, I have been advised by @rufus_airlines (the photo above this blog is his) and a number of locals. Enjoy!


When we recently spent a weekend in Ghent and were so lucky that we were allowed to stay in the beautiful Pillows Hotel, we discovered the nice Labath across the street. Not only good coffee of course, but also a place to have a nice lunch and read a magazine.



In a beautiful monumental full of original details you can enjoy “The Moment”. An old tiled floor, plenty of ornaments and then the best barista in Belgium, Valentine, who makes the most delicious coffee for you.

Madam Bakster – Brabantdam 142

Looking for a guilt-free and vegan place in Ghent? You found it in 1 at Madam Bakster. The most delicious vegan baking and a nice cup of coffee for it.

Koffiebar Simon Says – Sluizeken 8

Please note that Simon Says is always very busy and therefore super fun. A nice place to enjoy a nice break on Sunday after all the beers you drank the night before.

Full Circle Coffee – Zuidstationstraat 5

They call themselves “????????????????????????????’???? ???????????????????? ​​????????????% ???????????????????? ???????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????? ????????????” it is therefore a completely vegan coffee bar.

These are the best coffee shops in Ghent

Goesting (lunch too) – Predikherenlei 25

Do you have Goesting? Then you go here for cake, coffee and lunch of course. Good lunch. If you order coffee, tell them not to add cocoa;).
