CREA café

about the café

CREA café is the place to take a break or get together after class, before your course starts or after a performance in the theatre. The café serves a nice cup of coffee, the best sandwiches and craft beers from the draft. The place looks industrial with furnitures that could have belonged to your granny. The café is also the foyer of the CREA theatre and CREA music hall.

quality food at affordable prices

The CREA café offers an extensive lunch menu of sandwiches, croques monsieurs, homemade soup and several snacks. Feel like having something sweet? The brownies are to die for, the cake is delish and there’s a wide range of candy bars!

real nice coffee, biological sodas and great beer

If you like coffee, then CREA café is the place to be. The coffee is from Badeta Koffiebranders and the range of teas is also very wide. On the drinking menu are rotating local beers from the draft, wines from de Gouden Ton and biological sodas (Bionade en Belvoir).
