The servers at this place are cold. When we asked for an extra glass, the server looked annoyed. There is a charge of €.30 to use the toilet! How inhospitable! The server again looked annoyed when we asked if it was true that we had to pay to use the toilet. And it wasn't even that clean. The moules was... More

After realizing that we should have booked at several restaurants before trying to dine at any of them--despite being near "low" tourist season--we landed at Cafe Leffe. We were interested in having mussels, the big thing here, and we were very happy that we decided to do so. I had the plain mussels; my husband had the spicy mussels; and... More

After a less than average meal, I was served a cold capuchino. I asked for a warm one, but instead of getting me a warm capuchino, the waitress got offended and responded that "capuchino is meant to be cold" after all "the foam is made of cold milk". Hmmm right. She ended up bringing me a bit of warm milk... More

It was raining and we wanted a simple place to eat. I had a hamburger and my wife had the mussels and chips. You would think that with these simple dishes you could not go wrong! However, the hamburger seemed like cheap processed meat which had been broiled. It was covered in a very thick glob of cheese which was... More

The location is very good and the service is also very good. The beer, as you can tell form the name is NO problem, so for a snack and a beer, perhaps a bigger meal this is a good choice.

A very agreeable spot for a leisurely Sunday lunch in September. The cafe overlooks the pretty Place du Grand Sablon and many of the tables are down a walking street. We enjoyed a good Liege-style (i.e. cooked in beer) carbonade de boeuf and moules marinieres accompanied by excellent frites and draught beer. Friendly and efficient service.

After touring Brussels all day it was nice to take an afternoon break and have a beverage at Cafe Leffe. The service was good and the Framboise and beer were cold and the snacks tasty. Who could ask for more?

Stopped in this restaurant for a dinner and it did not disappoint. The service was excellent and the food was equally as good. My husband had the filet with bearnaise sauce and wow - was it good! I had a kind of chicken and croissant dish and it was also very good. The beer at Leffe is incredible - definitely... More

I found this tasty and appropriate. No big experience, but solid and well served. Nice outdoor seating and a cold beer. I cannot confirm the poor rating

Sometimes you will find a small café or restaurant that is off the beaten path and full of locals. This is how we happened across Café Leffe. After several miserable meals in Brussels, we sat down and enjoyed a great one. We had several Leffes (€4.10/each) (of course) and waterzoi de volaille (€16.80), as well as Stoemp du Jour (€15.50).... More
