I have a new coffee place I like to frequent. It is Franz Gustav, a bit away from the center, small but adorable and no noisy background to endure. Franz Gustav welcomes workers with their laptop, offers incredible cappuccinos and even has a wine card for the afternoon. The big windows make it a very light and open place and you can choose between small tables or one big table. Newspapers are available to read and overall, the setting is best to be described as a living room area.
The service is very friendly and familiar. They really try to get to know their clientèle to enhance that family feeling. So, if you want to try something out of the city center, near Dok Noord and within walking distance of Gent-Dampoort Station, you can try your luck here.
