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.
