A lovely place which, if it has any faults, I have been unable to detect them. Perhaps a little busy at peak hour?
Fresh, tasty and healthy foods - quiches, along with salads featuring at least one type of bean (boon in Flemish). All accompanied by the best flat white in Ghent, in the opinion of this fussy Australian coffee drinker. Topped off by charming staff and effective wifi, via which I’m uploading this review.

Thank Rick O

I had lunch here on a rainy day. It has a beautiful location right outside the castle, and the food was amazing. I had the cuscus salad, a beer and a soy cappuccino, which were all sublime. The staff is really lovely. Also reasonable prices, relaxed atmosphere. If I could just take this place home with me I would. Highly recommended!

We recently tried Boon and absolutely loved it. They provide a variety of healthy salads, quiches & desserts. The quiche was really good and served with a side salad. The interior is very cozy, you are quickly tempted to stay for a while and try their coffees as well. The service was equally good.

Happened upon this place on a wet, cold day in Ghent - it's just opposite the Gravensteen. It's warm and comfortable with a fairly short menu but everything we had was excellent and home made. Quiches were really tasty - unusually for quiche - the salads were great and there was REAL coffee. Highly recommended for a light meal or coffee. The charming owner is an enthusiast and an excellent hostess - she deserves success.
