Best Coffee in Leuven

Leuven is a tiny city in Belgium, – tiny as in consisting of about 90,000 inhabitants -. Yet, this number is misleading about the life in the city. Everything in Leuven is about the students and for the students. And of course, students need coffee.

1. Koffie Onan

Roasting their own coffee, Koffie Onan ensures a quality taste. Located nearby the city center, it is a hot spot where you can always find fresh and delicious coffee. Accompanied by a cozy vibe and free chocolates depending on your choice of flavor, you can imagine that Koffie Onan is usually packed.

2. Coffee Cafe Leuven

Coffee Cafe is yet another small hot spot in Leuven. What’s special about this place is that they have a wide range of alternatives against plain simple coffee. From macchiato to cookies to latte with oreos, there is not an end to sweetness in Coffee Cafe.

3. Barbóék

Former De Dry Coppen has a new name and a new building. As a book cafe, they have a lovely atmosphere and a lovely menu. Moreover, it is a great place to study.

5. Het Moorinneken

Het Moorinneken happens to be one of my personal favorites. It is actually a restaurant but they have amazing coffee and a sweet way of serving it. Located in the Grote Markt, you can enjoy a cup of coffee while having a view of the city.
