Understaffed, Oversubscribed

If you like a proper cuppa in Brussels, this place is for you. A delish patisserie and a wondrous tearoom makes the menu worth its higher than local average prices. However, this is a really popular place especially for lunch or brunch. Because of this, some if the staff come off as snooty, in any... read more

We stopped in here for breakfast with a family of four. The tea house is next door to the Michael Kors bag shop . The outside area has heating so nice to sit on a chilly morning. This is a basic tea house selling tartines( sandwiches) breakfast favourites like eggs and bacon or simply a baguette with jam or ham.... More

Saturday morning, on cricket tour, 09.00 and nothing open for breakfast. Except this. And what a fantastic piece of luck that was. Scrambled eggs and ham tasted wonderful. Tea was nice too, as was the freshly squeezed orange juice. Well worth it.

Probably the worst option in that neighberhood. Way overpriced for a sub-par quality. Service is not only terrible, it is rude and impolite. This place incarnates one of the mysteries of economics: how a sloppy business can survive for years in a somewhat competitive environment.

This is one of the only places to eat in Ave Louise. The service is quite slow and the cafe is very over priced. However I will not be returning because of the incredibly rude and aggressive attitude of one staff member - who I presume was in fact the manager. We went to pay and he informed us "We... More

A nicely designed cafe with a great selection of teas. Friendly staff, and convenient location just off Avenue Louise.

This small place is very well located in the heart of the shopping area around place Louise/Stephanie. Excellent 'tartines' for a quick lunch break. Service is quick and friendly, the place is quite small and gets crowded very quickly at lunch time. Prices have been steadily creeping up in the past 2-3 years, probably due to the success of the...
