If you would like to go swimming when you are in the city, this is the place to be! It is a 20 minute drive from the center of the town. Set in the natural area of Deinze it features outdoor swimming and a little cafe where you can grab a drink and a bite. It is an old-fashioned place where grandmothers play cards and has flemish feel to it. The surroundings are great for walking, so get out and explore!

This is my absolute favourite restaurant in town. But then again I have to correct myself; it's not merely a restaurant. It is a pizzeria, a bakery, a brunch place, coffee bar and a fine-dining restaurant all in one. It is casually cozy while it offers great food. Set around a magnificent wood oven this restaurant by star chef Kobe Desramaults is truly a gem!
