The small shop Host (Home of Sweets and Things) hosts a small cafè called Nellies not far from Berchem station. The bar is managed by a very nice lady that prepares most of the menu homemde. The cafè share space with the shop, so you can eat and then browse the millions of interesting objects inside. The terrace outside was closed because it was snowing, but definitely promising for summertime 🙂

All cakes look amazing and when I ordered a Flat Bread Pizza with tomaat and mozzarella, I got an amazing rectangle Pizza with salade on top and tomatoes and mozzarella underneath. The dough was very softly baked, not at all stuffy nor hard. The perfect lunch for a Friday. Perfect match if you’re looking for an alternative to the crappy choice of bars you have at the Berchem station. Nellies it’s literally a couple of hundred meters from the station. Easy peasy!
