I’m a born and raised Gent girl, but I’ve always had a weak spot for Antwerp. I love exploring its wide variety of stores, coffee bars, restaurants and cafés. Recently, I added the Vascobelo V-bar to my to-go list.
I got to know the premium coffee brand during the Pravda press days in April and I’ve fallen in love with the elegant branding and of course, the taste of its delicious brews. I met up with my friend Jan to work and chat in their recently opened coffee bar, which is located at De Grote Markt facing the city hall.
We were welcomed by lovely barista Anne-Cathérine, who has a very interesting interior design and art blog. Apparently we were already following each other on Instagram, what a small world it is! To be honest, this “I think I follow you on Instagram” thing has been happening a lot to me lately! She made us both a nice latté and gave us some explanation about the brand.
The people behind Vascobelo share the philosophy that coffee is more than just a drink, it’s an experience. Vascobelo hosts apero events on Fridays, collaborates with jazz artists, the baristas wear pretty uniforms… You can even bring them to your event or office! Everything is worked out in detail and they definitely live up to their philosophy. I love it!
So next time you’re in Antwerp, you know where to go!
