Now, a hundred years later, Leonidas is more prominent than ever in Belgium. In the shop in Emiel Braunplein, in the shadow of the majestic belfry in the heart of Ghent, locals and tourists alike can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee with pralines or treat themselves to one of the irresistible Leonidas drinks.
