We went with a group of five and luckily we reserved as the place is tiny (around 4-5 tables). We all had bagels and no one had any complains. The bagels came with a side salad and costed around 9€ per plate. I find it a bit pricy but considering the area I think that's the best you can get.... More

Had very reasonable coffee plus shot glass of avocado/amaretto at 3 euro and nice cake in this very small cafe crammed with lovely ornaments. Down to earth staff and very friendly.

This quirky and small restaurant offers a wonderful choice of breakfasts with very good quality ingredients. It is a shame that they do not serve their famous crepes until the afternoon though as this would be a great addition to the breakfast menu. Good coffee and set in a cute and quiet small street away from the main tourist bustle.... More

The food is very nice, however I consider close to 10 euro for a single pancake with some (very interesting) extras somewhat overpriced. The place itself is very nice, in a nice location.

This is tiny, cute little breakfast place on a square where some sort of auction was taking place. We enjoyed coffee, crepes and omelets while we watch the people toting off their auction treasures. The Greek omelet may very well have been the best omelet I have ever had. It was firm on the bottom and covered in tomatoes and... More

It is a nice little cafe, very close to the shopping district and beautifully decorated. I have spent an afternoon with my friends there for a refreshing coffee. The menu was clear, organized and clever. I have enjoyed the fact that If you couldn't choose which type of pie you like the had the option of " I can choose"... More

On the edge of the shopping district is this charming little cafe. We always go for breakfast before hitting the market on a Saturday morning. It's run by a woman who sometimes has help, but it's a little like sitting in someone's front room with an eclectic gypsy/kitchy/retro pop design style. It's a little pricey, but if you're the kind... More

A nice little café close to the Plantin-Moretus museum. We had a delicious pancake and there was a good selection of teas and tarts. It has a cozy feel and friendly service.
