One of those places that pretend to be simple, but with its bio/organic/vegetarian/healthy/vegan issues proclaims a sort of superiority. Quite irritating, I have to say. The staff is young. To catch their attention you have to tip tap and throw some firecracker, but then, when they realize you exist, they are very kind. We had some soups that revealed to... More

Nearly 50 euros for two onion soups and a little trendy salad. Total ingredients cost: 1 to 2 euros. The onion soup was a disgrace. Bland, bland, bland. For 6.90 per soup, this was a complete rip-off. The salad was nice.. but nothing wow.

We had no breakfast at our hotel which was situated next to this, so we stopped for a coffee and a snack before catching our train. The place is situated just outside the central trainstation in Antwerpen. Everything looks really cool, the place is very spacious and has a nice design (based on wood). The bakery side has a display... More

Nothing special, I came here because I heard about this place but for me was nothing out of common; very expensive for a simple basis food, as I said: nothing special. When I realised that is a chain of food then I understood all.

Visited this place quite a bit on a recent trip to Antwerp. Coffee and service was always good. Had breakfast here on my last day, but it seemed a bit overpriced for what we got. Nice quiet place to come though.

Had a nice business lunch here. They had the option of indoor or outdoor seating. English menus were easily available. The service was efficient. Food was very good (all of us had salads - tuna and chicken were excellent choices). Overall, a very good lunch experience. One note, it can get noisy as there are big spaces to sit and... More

My host was so thrilled to introduce us to this restaurant chain and my first impression was that it looked great. We started with a cold spicy soup which was delicious but then the main I chose was really miserable. I went for the smoked salmon salad with lentils. The plate did not look at all appetising, there were two... More

We visited this place already twice because of its convenient location close to Central Station. In contrast to the other reviewers, we experienced very good service (friendly, fast and even in English). The food is good (not exceptional) and is served in decent portions. People with special diets can have gluten free bread as well.

From the outside this ecological cafe/ restaurant looks lovely. It is next to the Central Station in Antwerp, on a small square with a couple of hotels nearby. We walked in on our first morning in Antwerp, wanting a nice breakfast. What a disappointment. Firstly, there are 2 entrances (one for the restaurant, one for the bakery side), the restaurant...

Service - there was no service... All the people around us where in the same boat... Staff clearing plates while the customers waited and waited... Location - good Space was modern and bright... Food - great concept, poor execution and attention to detail... Hot pot served warmish. Drink order wrong. Funny side note: we could not find anyone to service... More
