I had a delicious and very beautiful coffee accompanied with a delicious piece of cake at Philomenious. The barista is a very nice guy. A place i can recommend. Pretty postcards to buy

We went already several times to this coffeehouse in the center of Aalst. It is often busy, but places are a bit limited. There is a small terrace and inside are 2 big tables, where you sit next to the other visitors, and a small corner voor 5 or 6 persons. The furniture is a mix of old things and... More

This coffee shop in Aalst is a little gem! The aesthetics are on-point, the place is modern with a lot of character, the coffee tasted great, the cake I tried was yum, and the owner is a really cool guy. Good place to meet up with friends, curl up with a book alone on a weekend, or have a lax... More

Dear Kristin, Thanks for your positive review! On Saturday we're often crowded indeed, but not the whole day long. The afternoon is mostly crowded but between 10-14 you will easily find a seat to have a cup of good coffee! And... very important, we are always happy when it's crowded, it means that we can keep the business healthy. ;-)... More

A cozy place where you can get a good cup of coffee and a decent slice of pie to go with it. The pastries are fresh and there's usually an unexpected taste on offer. We haven't tried any of the other drinks on the menu yet as the coffees are just too enticing. Friendly service is the cherry on the... More

Ok, maybe Aalst is not quite the town you visit when in Belgium. But a stopover is worth while. If you do so you have to have a coffee at philimonius. Great coffee and home made cake are waiting for you. Barista Jo prepares the perfect cappuccino or latte macchiato with a smile.
