La Belle is an elegant café-styled bakery located in the classic Alphen Hotel. It’s got that sort of charm that would impress the bourgeoisie but also accommodate a peasant looking to propose. The vibe in the air is relaxing, so much so that I feel it rejuvenates the soul. It’s definitely a classy establishment but one that is not over the top. Everything has been crafted to a T, even the bathrooms which keep you jiving while you do your duties.
Coffee & Food:
The coffee is pretty good, a real hotel classic with frothy cappuccinos being the standard. If you’re not feeling coffee, they’ve also got pots of tea, juices and milkshakes. The food is utterly outstanding, even if it might burn a hole in your pocket. They’ve got all the classic breakfasts and some sensationally sweet ones for the kids too. For lunch, they’ve got sarmies, salads, burgers and a couple magnificent meals. If you’re feeling lavish and keen to splash some cash, pop in La Belle for some tantalizing taste bud ticklers.
