Labath Ghent – If you're in need of a Honey Bun

Coffee & tea

The rumor goes that "Labath" serves the best cappuccino in Ghent. The rumor could be right. I've lived around the corner for 4 years.

The rumor goes that Labath serves the best cappuccino in town. The rumor could be right. I have lived around the corner for 4 years so Labath was a place I ate breakfast, drank coffee, ate lunch, drank some more coffee and sometimes I ate a piece of pie. Together with my newspaper, my laptop or my friends.

A slow coffee is here called a bunny and you can choose between different brewing devices. V60, Clever Dripper, French Press or one of my favorites, the Aeropress.

Café Labath is a bit of a 'Place m'as-tu vu', but one where you want to be seen. If you really want to feel famous, lean back on the terrace with a Cappuccino Star. Oh, and don't forget your hipster outfit.

De Planck – Beers on a boat
