With autumn in town, the temperatures change and the warm winter coats come outside out of the closet. Let this be the perfect opportunity to go for a coffee between two classes. Well, every opportunity to get a good coffee is welcome! So, this morning, my friends and I decided to go to a warm, cosy place and heat ourselves
with a -you won’t guess it- coffee.
In our quest for the perfect coffee bar, we came across a cute little places called ‘Me and My Monkey’
After changing my mind for like three times, I decided to go for a ‘speculatte’. You can never go wrong with speculaas, but this latte was amazing. For those who don’t know what speculaas is, it is a typical Belgian spiced biscuit. It has something autumnal, and it is given to children when ‘sinterklaas’ comes, a Belgian variant of Father Christmas. But don’t get me wrong ; we Belgians eat speculaas during the whole year because it tastes delicious! (for the vegans amongst us; the speculaas from the brand ‘Lotus’ doesn’t contain milk or eggs!) Now back to my speculatte. Something convinced me that this was the best speculatte I ever had. It is the fact that this one contained speculaaspasta. ‘speculaaspasta’ is another Belgian speciality ; it is basically a spread made from speculoos. JUMMY!
One of my friends ordered an homemade ice tea and the other one ordered a cappuccino with marzipan and almond. The cappuccino was served in a cute vintage cup. I really love these kind of coffee cups ; in fact, I collect them. Let this be another reason to come back, which I definitely will do. I had no time to try other things but the menu contained so many things that looked delicious. I will keep you updated when I go back.
Before I end this blogpost, I have some advice for you : go to Antwerp and check this place out by yourselves !
