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.

The crowd of "bobos" hanging out at this place gives staff a carte blanche to be impolite. Guess what: some of us would appreciate a smile and a bit of flexibility, and we are ready to reciprocate too! As much as I generally like the decoration and food, I try to avoid this place-especially on weekends.

This elegant café, located amongst some really nice shops, served good quality food, in good portions. The scrambled eggs were particularly tray.

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
