You can try this one if Eten Vol Leven is closed

The first time I went inside this restaurant was for asking why they serve vegetarian food instead of vegan. I saw their menu and they include information about the cruelty involve and in the food industry and other interesting topics. Thus, my question. The answer was basically that business is better like that. Later, after visitig their toilet, I also discovered that they use products tested on animals as well. Anyway, I went eating here months after that since Eten Vol Leven (in front of it) was closed, and better a vegetarian restaurant than a "normal" one. I had vegan pasta. The portion was ok for the price (I picked small, and was told that big is quite big), although it needed more flavour -even with tomato sauce and other mixed vegs in it-.
Again, not a bad choice if there's nothing else. This will always be "better" than a restaurant serving dead animals.

Pros: Vegetarian with vegan options, Ok portion for the price
Cons: A bit tasteless, A bit hypocritical

Lots of variety on the menu, plenty of options.
There are also some vegan options on the menu.
Friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely go here again when back in Antwerp.
Had soup, sandwich, and a smoothie, very reasonably priced.
Pity it's not open for dinner.

Pros: options on menu, friendly
