Visited one morning for breakfast whilst staying in Brussels. Was extremely pleasant little café and one of the only ones we could find in the area which was serving breakfast. The staff were very helpful and polite and spoke great English which was helpful for us as our French is more than a little rusty! Sat outside and it was... More

Good place, relaxed and enjoyable. Service is with a smile and the food is good. Pay attention only that you cannot pay by credit card!

Our family had breakfast here. Food and service were both pretty good. Menu is pretty limited, though, and prices seem a little high.

I loved the cheesecake and enjoyed my tea (Mariage freres) but I felt somehow disapointed that there was no wifi, the boss shouted to his waiters and I had to pay 7 euros for the tea, almost as expensive as the entire box of Thé Mariage frères I have at home.

Normally I almost never review something in hometown Brussels but this was so shocking. Last time I was here was some years ago and they had nice staff and enjoyable cakes. Now turning back to this place to show a friend something really nice, I was disappointed from beginning till the end. We ordered cappuccino (3,5€), moka (3.5€) and an... More

Lovely cafe serving drinks and small bites: perfect for a small lunch with a friend, if you can get a table - it tends to fil up quickly. Nice friendly service

I've eaten here a number of times for a late breakfast or lunch. Excellent light dishes and pastries. In warm weather, very nice to sit outside and watch the well-heeled shoppers of Brussels passing by.

The location is perfect, the concept is charming, the waiters are hot (well, some at least), the food is good, yet something is missing. Maybe it's the rushed service, maybe it's the poor presentation (how about a leaf of salad with those tartines?!), or maybe the chipped crockery... but a little could go a very long way here.
