Restaurant review #79 – Greenway is a Belgian vegetarian brand (restaurants and products) and was founded by Paul Florizoone in the mid nineties. The first Greenway restaurant opened in Ghent in 1996 and I vividly remember it opening at that time (I worked nearby and was thrilled!). Meanwhile there are three Greenway restaurants in Belgium (Ghent, Louvain and Antwerp) and a take-away at the railway station of Brussels-Midi. I visited the Greenway in Antwerp a couple of weeks ago with a friend, and we had some lovely cakes (see blog here). It’s been a while since I’ve been to the ones in Ghent and Louvain, but we visited the Greenway in Louvain again for lunch recently.
The Greenway in Louvain is located in the city center, just a short walk from the town hall. It’s a nicely decorated place, lots of space, modern style. Vegan options are indicated on the menu above the counter and on the large board on the wall, where the daily suggestions are written.
We ordered at the counter – where you also get your drinks: a Mexican burger (7,95€) with a salad on the side (3,95€) and kebab wrap with lettuce (11,80€). For drinks we took a juice 2€ and bionina 2,65€. Food is delivered to the table, otherwise it’s self service (clear the table afterwards).
Food was very nice. Good portions. And all in all reasonably priced!
Toilets are downstairs (forgot to take a photo) and are rather narrow. They were tidy but had a rather old fashioned ‘college’ style look (prefab like cubes)
There’s a nice relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant, with a fastfood style interior. Unfortunately that also means no chairs to sit back and relax, only hard stools and benches (no back seating).
We had a nice lunch. We’ve been here several times over the years, and will definitely visit again!
