The buffet ( only 10€!) is great, but you can also order a la carte, plenty of choices! Very popular place! Walk-in but during weekends if more than 2, reserve (or wait)”

“Don't leave Antwerp without having tried the famous Belgian Brussels waffles at this place. Crispy outside, soft & moist on the inside: don't put anything else on it except powdered sugar or whipped cream. Take it to go: it's much cheaper plus the area is nice to stroll around! Can't get enough of the Belgian sweets? Try the super delicious Smoutebollen - fried dough balls - or a Lacquemant - a thin waffle coated with caramelised sugar. Enjoy! ”
