We'd been searching for somewhere to eat waffles in a sit-down restaurant (it was quite cold so the small waffle stands didn't look so appealing). It was lucky we only got a waffle on our last day, because here they are unbelievably good. We asked for a waffle with chocolate and whipped cream. The whipped cream was real, and the chocolate was real melted dark chocolate (not chocolate sauce). We also got a coffee, and at the end the bill was a bit of a shock (22e for two waffles and two coffees). It was a bit of a splurge, but worth it for the one time.

Went for an afternoon snack and coffee and it was wonderful! Waffles are a snack in Belgium and are eaten with butter, powdered sugar, as well as different fruits, jam or ice cream. I wish I could have tried them all!! This cafe is famous for its waffles and the residents all say this is the best cafe for waffles. I concurr-the waffle was outstanding. Also had a coffee which was served on a silver tray with whipped cream, a wafer, and the sugar and creamer. Beautiful presentation. The service was excellent and there was no communication issues. English menus are available. Definitely do not miss going to Antoon van Dyck if you are in Antwerp. Right by the historic main square.

Don't expect waffles for breakfast in Belgium. Waffles are an afternoon snack, and this cafe opens at noon and fills up fast with shoppers dropping in for a pancake, waffle, or ice cream. This cafe is famous for its large caramelized apple pancakes. The caramel milkshake is also very good. The service is excellent, in at least four languages.

The best ice cream and coffee is found at Antoon van Dijk. There is an extensive menu from snacks to dinner to dessert, presented with style. The cafe is beautiful and suited to the Antwerpen charm. The proprietors Michael and Rita are wonderful and gracious.
