Pit stop

Great for an afternoon pit stop after the busy day we had, the profiteroles were a delight to accompany my coffee. Not to mention the view of the arcade.

Yes, you could pay only 1 euro for a sugary cold waffle near the Manneken Pis, where all the tourists wait in line for waffles covered in whipped cream, chocolate, sugar, fruits... But you could pay 3,60 euros for a crispy warm waffle, topped with just enough powdered sugar at Mokafe. And I recommend the latter. Seriously. Go to Mokafe... More

Delicious waffles set in the beautiful Galleries St Hubert, definitely worth a visit. Great place to people watch and enjoy the architecture.

This cafe was a nice find. It is located in a covered mall of sorts. The Manager waited on us and was very friendly & spoke good English. Ask for the English menus. They have a small inside eating area and a bigger outside cafe eating area. Cozy, friendly atmosphere. We ate breakfast there and it was very good at... More

3'90€ for a waffle with chocolate but if you like waffles I can assure you that you would like it. It isn't the common dough of waffles :)

We popped into Mokafe for a sweet treat and they were delicious. I enjoyed a crepe with grand marnier and ice cream. My husband enjoyed a waffle with fruit and ice cream. A good place to stop for a nice treat and to sit and people watch in the Galerie St Hubert

We were in gastronomic overload after a trip to England, France and Belgium. This was our last dinner, so just looking for something quick and simple, yet still authentic. Mokafe worked well. Filled with locals. Food good. Service okay. Prices moderate. Not much atmosphere but was exactly what we were looking for on this occasion.

After a long walking tour, have a seat, a coffee and a waffle the way they're meant to be made: crispy on the outside; fluffy on the inside. Gorgeous! Always full for breakfast, not sure if they take reservations. Relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff.

I'm not a big fan of waffles and let me tell you these were DELICIOUS!!!! Not hard but not soggy, just perfect!!! The restaurant is mostly visited by locals so you know you're having the real deal! The staff is friendly and speak English.

You'll feel like a Belgian while dining at this nice little cafe located in the Galleries St-Hubert, off the Grand Place. Everything is pretty well priced. I opted for a pot of tea, I got the Raspberry TeaForte tea and it was delicious. Also got the waffle topped with cherries, and while it was good, I prefer the waffles from... More
