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.

If you work or visit the European Commission or Council, you should visit this small cafe at the nearby Place Jourdan. Excellent quiche, but most of all: beautiful and excellent cakes, especially the small, round ones. The interieur design is not so nice, so maybe you can take the cakes with you :-)

This is a very cosy cafe located in Place Jordan in Etterbeek. The pastry selection is awesome and the service is good. Great place to meet and chat with friends.

Stopped into get out of the cold and drizzle while visiting my daughter nearby. The shop is much bigger than it looks from the street and even has a second floor. The seating is comfortable and you can watch the comings and goings of the locals. There is a limited breakfast and lunch menu, but the pastries are the stars.... More
