I was strolling the streets of Ghent with a friend on a dreary, misty Tuesday when we spotted the hip-looking Wasbar and wondered aloud why, exactly, there were Electrolux logos on the window of some trendy café.
And then, it hit us. "WE CAN DO LAUNDRY TODAY!" Our faces alight, we went in for a coffee to scope out the place: along the walls of this design-centric coffee shop and bar were washers (with names!) and detergent for use along the back wall. Service was impeccable, and it's a must for any weary traveler with a sackful of dirty clothes and a penchant for the café scene.
