New In Town: Coffee Cocotine


Stepping into Cocotine is a surprise in the best way possible. It’s part of the emerging trend of concept coffee bars popping up around the city, offering an experience, not just a meal. Tucked into quiet Leithstraat just northeast of Ghent, Cocotine really feels like a long awaited local gem. Cosy corners fill the wide open space with plush couches, and purposeful pink and blue pastels touches adding to the colorful charm. Owner Ebru Palit says she started Cocotine as a passion project to merge her love of design, food, and community into one. She loved that the neighborhood feel of the area would add character to the place as opposed to being directly in the city center. The lunch and brunch menu offers an assortment of fun and flavorful coffees, tasty toasts, quiches, and sweet desserts.
