The story goes back to 1994, where Françoise made her first cake in Brussels for friends. It was a big success, so she started making artisan cakes for friends and family. Soon she was contacted by other people, but also by bars and restaurants who wanted her simple, honest, homemade cakes. Today Tartes de Françoise produces cakes and quiches in Brussels and Ghent, according to the traditional recipes.
It’s a very busy place, so if you want to make sure they have the cake or quiche you want, it’s better to reserve in advance over the phone or on their website. The only disadvantage may be that it’s only take-away and not eat-in. But actually if you eat a cake in one of the Ghent coffee houses, the chances or not that small that they get their cakes from Françoise (f.e. EXKI, Faja Lobi, a.o.). In the meantime you can find already some copies of this place, but none are as good as the original.
I’m especially fond of their cheesecake with speculoos and their chocolate cakes. But actually everything I tried was really yummie!
