The house is known for the quality of its waffles. It's up to you to judge if they deserve their reputation.

The Meert tea room

The Meert tea room
You can enjoy the waffles that are the great specialty of the house in a lovely tea room. Meert's waffles are not like the classic waffles you find everywhere. They are cold and filled with vanilla. The quality of the ingredients is undeniable but this waffle is very (too) sweet and quite quickly sickening.

Our Lady of the Treille

Our Lady of the Treille
The church was built to honor a miraculous statue of Our Lady of the Treille, a work of the late 12th century. The construction of the cathedral took over 150 years. When the bells were finished, the church was not ready to receive them, so a bell tower was quickly built next door. This one is still in use.
