Best place for Lackmans Waffles, Brussels Waffles or even Crêpes Normandes in Antwerp. Service and location are nothing special, but if you have a sweet tooth, don't miss this...

Enjoyed every bite of their waffles! I can't wait to go back again for more. In my opinion is the best waffles in Antwerp. Try have a small take away shop and if u walk further they have a nice sit down place.

Lousy service, maybe the waiter had an off-day. But he gave us the feeling he'd rather see us leave, then having us sit down. Foodwise it was ok, we had pancakes. We ate and left immediately

I always come here everytime I come to Antwerp. Favourites include prawn cocktail salad, omelettes, toast with champignons and a new discovery today: apple donuts. HEAVEN. They charge for toilets (a mere 30c) but who doesn't? It means they are CLEAN. Love it here.

crowded and cramped, our table was outright filthy and it took for ever to get any waitress' attention
