The 5 most romantic cafes in Ghent

1) Huset

Here is a strange, romantic place hidden away in a vast Ghent mansion. It is run as a cafe and gallery by Eveline Roels, a Ghent art graduate who grew up in this grand 1860s house. You sit on worn antique chairs under a beautiful moulded ceiling while Eveline heats up some soup in the kitchen or brings you coffee in a delicate China cup. It is a warm, welcoming place with a beautiful overgrown garden at the back for summer days. ‘Huset is a place where anything can happen,’ Eveline says. But unfortunately not at weekends, when it is closed.
