They are very friendly staff and owners who try to assist us. We had a wonderful pancakes on Sundays... read more

I like this place for their cakes and small sweets. Get a coffee there and choose from their vast selection of mini cakes to make your own cafe gourmand, this place is a must for sweet-tooths!

My wife and I had breakfast here on 09 October 2014. The omelettes were excellent. Good coffee. Not many patisseries in Brussels, unlike Paris, so this is a nice find. And also unlike those in Paris, Au Vatel offers breakfast foods. Highly recommended.

Not the cheapest, but certainly one of the best patisseries in town located at Place Jourdan, a very lively neighbourhood.

I've been to Vatel several times and i always try to stop there when I'm in the area. Nice pastries, croassants etc and good breads as well. The coffee is good. A nice place to take a break.
