Ghent's first coffee house & roastery

The history of the business dates back to 1937, when a young Italian settled here. There was a shop on the ground floor, while the basement housed the coffee roastery. After the war, it also became possible to enjoy a cup on site! Our authentic, wooden interior still exudes the nostalgic atmosphere of the 1940s and 1950s.

Delicious coffee house where time has stood still. The Best Coffee In Ghent that always comes with a little dollop of whipped cream on a silver saucer. Also coffee for sale to take away, our favourite is the mysore. We haven't drunk anything else since. Ground in front of your nose.

Just back in time. Unlikely to see coffee house as it was 50 years ago. Solid classic coffee as it should be.
