Cinema ZED: “Alternative movie theatre with great movies”

Cinema ZED is the place to be for anyone who loves movies. They program real great arthouse movies. Cinema ZED helps organizing various film festivals in Leuven which draw a large public. They have special programming for different occasions, season 2013-2014 for instance they had films in 18 different languages to celebrate 40 years CLT (Center for Living Languages) in Leuven.

And yeah, definitely a plus: they don’t sell popcorn!

notre dame quasimodo: “Have a drink at the terrace in the summer time, don’t eat here”

Notre Dame is a very big restaurant with an impressive range of choices on the menu. The problem with the food is that it is mostly precooked food heated in a microwave. No quality whatsoever. The service is also rather rude, but on the other hand very efficient. So if you’re looking for a quick meal, this place will do it. Don’t expect your food to be tasty though.

However I can recommand the terrace in summer to have a drink and watch people. Notre Dame is located in the center of the city on a beautiful historical square. Just have dinner or lunch elsewhere.

Gelateria Decadenza: “The ice cream in town!”

Real Italian gelato and sorbetto served in a little shop in the centre of Leuven. The flavours differ depending on the day or occasion. When there was a flower market on the town square for instance, they offered flower sorbetto’s. Very nice! Opening hours can be a little tricky, so make sure to check their facebook page which is updated daily, if you plan on treating yourself to this delicious ice cream. And do yourself a favour: try the sorbetto al cioccolato.
