#FoodPorn: Di Ghent

Hello Everyone!

I was really craving for a hearty breakfast at Di Ghent and since a couple of  friends are in town, we thought what could be better than catching up while devouring some waffles and coffee.Di Ghent has been my favorite café ever since it opened up in Gurgaon. Co-owned by a Belgian Lady and an Indo-Australian gentleman and located on the second floor of Cross Point Building, right across Galleria Market in DLF Phase 4, this café exports you right to the middle of an a-historical European experience with it’s French windows and the clever use of wood, Di Ghent (From Ghent – a city in Belgium). This café offers quick bites like Bruschetta and Paninis as hors d’oeuvres with Koffie along with a decent fare of mains for a meal.

Café Di Ghent also has a Boulangerie and a Pâtisserie just is just a couple of steps outside the main cafe. The Boulangerie opens up a 8 am whereas the café  opens at 9 in the morning. The boulangerie is absolutely gorgeous with it’s vintage accents along with being really charming and pretty. I also love the fact that one can pick up freshly baked breads for home ( I do that really often). Their cakes, cupcakes and desserts too are divine. I highly recommend visiting this cafe if you want to have one of the BEST breakfasts in town. From Pancakes, Waffles , Smoothies to Poached Eggs; they have it all. If you’re not in the mood for breakfast which is served till 12:30 pm, you must try the Buck (Tomato, Basil and Mozrella Bruchetta), Claus (Parma Ham, parmesan cheese, rucola and mayonnaise Panini – with your choice of bread) and any of their freshly brewed coffees served with a biscotti. Di Ghent is hidden gem bursting with flavors that truly offers a #foodporn moment.

I won’t talk about it further but will let the pictures speak for themselves.

Note If you opt for ‘The breakfast’ which gives you tea/coffee + Pancakes/Waffles/Eggs +Smoothie/Juice it would cost you about Rs.650 per head. However, you can also go ahead and order any of these items separately. If you’re planning to go for a lunch or dinner, then the cafe would cost you about Rs.850 for two.

You must go ahead and try out their Breakfast Menu incase you haven’t already. All of the dishes were simply perfect and were oozing with flavors.Can’t wait my exams to get over and indulge there again. Sigh 🙂
