Cafes Heritage

Cafe Horta, Antwerp

Heritage plus cafe

We wanted to visit Cafe Horta because of its place in Antwerp’s architectural heritage. It’s reputation as a great cafe may have influenced us too!

Cafe Horta was built from recovered iron work from buildings designed by Horta. The iron work was nearly lost to a scrapyard but happily has a new life as a cafe.

Horta was an Art Deco architect and sadly not all of his work survives. I hope to visit the Horta Museum next time I go to Belgium.


We were in Belgium, in a cafe, so that meant one thing. Have the pudding with the most possible chocolate in! It was really good as was the rest of the meal.

Making models and playing tabletop games since the late 1960s, and still enjoying it! Now working in heritage and dabbing around with photography, with quality cafe time when I can.
