It’s Sunday, which means I’m sharing another hotspot with you! When I was looking for a cafe in Ghent to work on my thesis, I decided to try something new instead of going to my usual work place “Le Pain Quotidien”. I had read some good things about Billy Bonka, an all-vegan bar that recently opened its doors in Ghent’s historical city centre, so I wanted to give this place a try. I spent my whole afternoon here, and had my first productive day this month. The place has a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, friendly owners and some nice music playing in the background. Since they opened very recently – June 15 – they’re still working on their menu, but it looks very promising already.
While I was working on my thesis, responding to some emails, and making to-do lists for the next week, I enjoyed an iced latte and a brownie – both for a very reasonable price. I’m especially a fan of their iced latte, which they make with almond milk. Apart from coffee and tea, they also serve breakfast and some dishes that you can order all day: lasagna, nacho’s, quesadillas… all plant-based! You’ll also find some cocktails and biological wines on the menu. I will definitely return here to get some work done, have a drink with friends or try their vegan lasagna.
You can find Billy Bonka in Onderstraat 14, Ghent
