My favorite place to get coffee in Antwerp is at Caffènation and it’s a convenient 5 minute walk from my apartment! The new location by the Nationale Bank van België is huge (3 floors) and now I’m always guaranteed a seat. Caffènation is the only real coffee house in Antwerp other than the Starbucks in the train station. Over here there’s more of a café culture, so the atmosphere at Caffènation feels a lot more American and like home to me.

Also the new location offers outdoor seating! So for the few weeks a year we have nice weather in Belgium, we can enjoy our coffee outside.

Our drinks: cappuccino of the week (made every week with a different roast) and an iced vanilla soy latte


Caffènation has their own blog, in English, if you want to check it out:
