The name “Barista” or coffee sommelier says it all. This is the place to be if you want to enjoy a good coffee.

At Barista coffee is the main attraction but the pastries and bread are also delicious. They’re all carefully baked at an organic bakery. The lunchtime menu includes soup, sandwiches and toasted sandwiches. In the afternoon, you can enjoy a slice of homemade cake with coffee, tea or organic lemonade.

Take a seat at the long tables and admire the hustle and bustle of Ghent’s Zuid neighbourhood.

Make sure you visit “Barista Zuivelbrug” at Meerseniersstraat, right in the city centre, near the bridge between Langemunt and Oudburg. Quiche and salads are also served here at noon.
