Breakfast like an empress, lunch like a queen and dine like a beggar woman‘. They don’t have to tell us that twice. That’s why we’ve selected the best places in Ghent to start your day and fill your stomach.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gets your metabolism going and gives you the necessary energy to make it another great day. In ‘negenduust’ (Ghent) they love a full breakfast, so there are plenty of places where you can start your day tastefully. We selected the most enjoyable and, of course, the most delicious hotspots. (July 2021)

01. GUST

Papegaaistraat 55, 9000 Gent

Do you prefer the scrambled eggs of happy organic chickens, a fresh slice of bread with homemade jam or artisanal chocolate spread? Or are you more into the delicious American pancakes with a generous portion of syrup? There’s something for everyone in this cosy place. Gust will reopen in October because the owner is on maternity leave. The restaurant will then be open every day, except Wednesday and Saturday, from 9 am to 2 pm. Reservations are necessary.
