Dropped by for a latte and a hot chocolate and free wifi. We were blown away by both drinks! Latte was smooth and flavorful and real dark chocolate was used, which melted in the warm milk perfectly.

A lovely little place for a good coffee. A nice alternative to the unwarranted familiarity some other coffee shops contrive. Aksum is for those who don't like their coffee in a paper cup with your name written on the side. Its small and cosy. The coffee is great. The staff are genuinely friendly and pleasant. I liked the Ethiopian vibe.... More

Coffee is as good as it gets. Cakes definitely worth trying. I regret I am not a regular anymore in that part of town

In this small but really charming place, definitely one of my favourites in Brussels (I've been living here since May 2014), the must-try is the passionfruit cake! Couple it with an ethiopian coffee and enjoy.

There is not much to say. They sell and serve excellent string Ethiopian coffee. This is said to be the origin of coffee round the world so try it!

Coffee house with best coffee in Brussels. The coffee beans are grind fresh and has a delicious bitter sweet taste.

Excellent Ethiopian coffee house in Brussels, great coffee and atmosphere, the only minuses are that service is a bit slow and there is often no free tables :-)
