|The waffle house Van Hecke is the oldest waffle house of Antwerp.
Gustaaf Van Hecke founded the business in 1905.
Originally the waffles were sold at the door and especially in the pubs in and around the Sint-Andries quarter.
Later on in the Nationalestraat, formerly known as the "Boeksteeg", a waffle house was established.
In the forties his daughter, together with her husband, took over the business. The tradition goes on.
