When you're shopping your heart out in Antwerp at this time of the year, you'll find at some point that your hands are freezing because of all the plastic bags that you're holding (when buying designer clothes a free pair of mittens should be included, really). So you'll need a place where both your limbs and your inner self can defrost. So Caffenation -which is only a short walk away from the main shopping streets- is just the thing for you. It's a trendy coffee bar that has a huge array of special coffees (which frequently include chocolate, whipped cream and so on) and also offers iced teas (keep it in mind for next summer), all of which are home-made. The setting is trendy and relaxed without trying too hard. In short: the perfect place for taking a break and preparing for yet another shopping spree.
