Great for breakfast

We had breakfast here twice instead of at our hotel as it was much cheaper. A hot breakfast for two and toast for one with drinks for us all cost around €20. The waiters were friendly and made a fuss of our son. Loved the fresh mint tea here.

I came here with my family our first night in Brussels. They are located in the arcade, and it has a lovely "outdoor" seating area which is great for people watching. We all chose something off of the "traditional" menu and everyone agreed that the food was quite good. Between four of us, we sampled a beef dish (I can't... More

A wonderful place to sit outside and enjoy the people passing by. This restaurant is located in the Royal Galleries. Lots of Marble and elegant gold trim abound the outside architecture. The chairs are wicker with little tables crowded together outside. The bathroom was clean and the service great. The waiter was cool and distance but when we had to... More

We just wanted to have a coffee and maybe a croissant, but once we were seated, saw they served waffles. Ours were plain, with a sprinkling of powdered sugar. Yum yum. Great view of the passers-by, though we sat inside. See that they serve full meals too. Toilets are clean - no easy feat in such a busy place. Lovely... More

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.

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.

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
