MAURICE COFFEE & KNITS

Coffee with concepts? they mixes two cozy things: coffee + knitting. if coffee is your comfort factor I hear knitting is stress therpay too. Concept revolves around the grandfather and muse of Véronique, the young founder of the bar and also designer of Maurice knitwear. They say, every piece of Maurice Knitwear is unique and handmade.  you’ll find lots of books and materials to go in depth on the world of wool here. Along with  cozy warm and fashionable sweaters, scarves, hoods and so on. The décor of the concept coffee bar is pretty charming. more attractive to me is the location, situated in Zurenborg - the area with art nouveau façades and other electic architectural styles.  Till recently, there were two cafes in the city, the downtown is closing down this May. Nevertheless, this location is right on one of the most beautiful streets of Antwerp, specially for the architecture lovers. Do take a walk through the Cogels Osylei and you would know.

the street is admirable

LOJOLA

A cute little tea room is how I always relate to this. It's all about home made here. The home made cakes, cookies, mousses and other things to fo the sweet cravings...... Next to that, there also have home made drinks, like hot chocolate, ice tea, and other drinks to accompany . the interiors are super lively and feels like in a fusion vintage tea room, with casual and  lots of '50s accents.

KOFFIEKLAP

KoffieKlap is a coffee bar in Antwerp, where you can drink honest coffee. isn't that just great? From the slogan 'honest coffee - fair opportunities' , they wanted to create a place where women from difficult situations get the chance to gain hospitality experience through training, coaching and creative activities. The social task of KoffieKlap goes beyond the work-related. 'We also teach women how to improve their lives and how, for example, they can build a new circle of friends.

TEAROOM LINTS

Lints - a well known patisserie name in Antwerp hangs the smell of freshly baked bread throughout the store. The famous tarts, breads and chocolate creations is just how I know about Lints. Their tearoom is a must do when you want to go after all those sweet cravings. Find your match for your with your cup between the good looking patisserie, butter cookies, chocolate and other delicacies. Those who know will totally know my pastry love, hence I did't reach beyond the sweet stuff. They talk about delicious breakfast formulas as well as salty specialties (haven't tried those). They have sandwiches, bagels with a weekly changing menu, they can adapt for vegetarians. And the quiches seem like a must try too.
