Before I tell you about the dreaminess of Alice, I should probably point out that there are two branches. Had I known this in advance, I definitely would have done my best to visit both the restaurant and the tearoom. As it stands, I only got the chance to visit the tearoom and somehow spent … Continue reading The fairytale Ghent tea room of dreams
