restaurant review #165 – T & Ko is a new vegan tea house in the city of Louvain. It is located in de Tiensestraat, which seems gradually to become the vegan street of Louvain, with the Loving Hut and Vegaverso all in the same street! (Update Fall 2018 see below).
We were here for lunch a couple of weeks ago. T&Ko offers some light lunch options, like soup and hummus, and also a plat du jour. They also have vegan pancakes, and lots of pies and cakes!
This is what we had for lunch:
Very nice lunch, and very good value for money (we though the main dishes were quite cheap actually).
The interior at T&Ko is simple but bright, with wooden chairs and tables.
The silence was on occasion deafening though, at one point I even started hearing the buzzing of the lights (or maybe that was my imagination?). Anyway, one could hear a pin drop, and as there were also other patrons in the establisment, we hardly dared to speak to each other, given lack of ‘auditory’ privacy. It made us feel a bit uncomfortable.
Toilet is in the back (ground level, accessible) after crossed a room where children come for dancing lessons. Toilet was clean, although the tap/ bassin could use a brushing.
All in all: we had a nice light lunch. Nice new addition to Louvain. Some background music to create some more atmosphere would be nice though 😉
Next time, we definitely want to try some pie or pancakes!
