Description: Taste of Belgium serves Belgian food with a twist. If it's not Belgian, we "Belgianize" it. We serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and one-of-a-kind weekend brunch. We have a full bar and a wide selection of Belgian beers on draft and in bottle. And we serve the absolute best waffles.

Dropped in here for a few drinks while we wanted on a table at Senate. Ended up getting an app of cheese (used sweet lambic) and pretzels. We thought it was delicous. Wife also liked that they had a sour on draft. After seeing this on Triple D we'll be back here for the food, apparently the food here is... More

We were advise of the 20 min. wait. We were excited and was waiting patiently. 2 tables became vacant. Hosts had 2 parties who came in after, be seated ahead of us. We were finally seated (without any apology) at the end of the restaurant right beside the Lavatories ( how conducive for a meal!) The server got our orders.... More

At 10 am on Sunday, it took us 30 minutes to get a table, but it was well worth the wait! Great food, superb coffee and fast, friendly, efficient service made this a highlight of our weekend in Cincy.

Please don't miss this place for breakfast or lunch. Best cup of coffee, ever! The chicken and waffles was sublime. You can even just stop by and grab some waffles or pre-made quiche to go (which were a happy reminder of my meal).

The Vine Street location was our destination, following our Segway of Cincinnati outing at Riverside. We chose the cocoa to warm up, and frites for more solid fare. Always a fine place to go.

This is a chunk of breakfast heaven! I had the "McWaffle".........!!!!!!!! I'm sure you cannot order anything here that is not scrumptious! This is one of those places where you think, " if I ate like this everyday......" We had a 35 min. wait at around 11a.m. on a Saturday. Spent it (literally!) in the shop across the street shopping....."Mica"... More

I went for lunch and ordered the mussels. While the tomato-based broth was delicious the mussels were quite small. Really small. As for the waffle, so highly praised on Diners Drives in and Dives, terrible. The taste was good but the texture was something like a half-baked scone. Very, very doughy. I was totally stunned. Will say the burgers looked... More

Visited this place with friends the very next morning after watching it on Guy Fierri/Food Network. And it was a blessing we just happen to be watching that channel that night. The waffles are amazing, to the point where you do not need to add a thing to them. Seriously, no syrup, no toppings and they are delicious. I happen... More
