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.

Charming place with a Eouropean ambiance!

It was a quaint little joint that reminded us the places you had been to in Europe. We had breakfast and both the food and coffee beverages were delicious. My hubby, a connoisseur for expresso gave a stem of approval and I enjoyed the cappuccino very much. The omelette and waffle were substantial... read more

I went to Taste of Belgium for lunch, based on the recommendation of a friend and WOW! I had the Chicken & Waffles. They came to the table covered in Maple Syrup & Hot sauce, I know weird. But it tasted so good. They had many other tasty sandwiches, soups and salads. It is well worth the walk down Vine... More

We love this place! The chicken and waffles is my favorite dish! The ham sandwich is a close second! The best ham sandwich ever!

Great staff, clean restaurant. The chicken and waffles are to die for! Make sure you save room for dessert. Totally worth the splurge.

Taste of Belgium is a Cincinnati restaurant at it's best! The love affair with the waffles started years ago when they used to sell them at Findlay Market. This grew into a restaurant and now a chain of the that specialize in brunch food. ALL of the food is great! Even if you're not in the mood for a wafflle... More

It's fairly rare to find good Liege waffles around, so when we found Taste of Belgium, I was delighted. The waffles are excellent - dense, slightly crunchy from the grains of sugar, but not too sweet. They offer the traditional variations with chocolate, Nutella, bananas, cream, etc, but also American variations, like waffle sandwiches and cheeseburgers. I had one plain... More

Just a few blocks from the University of Cincinnati, I would have expected a college dive. But this place was far far from that. An excellent selection of Begium beers, some on tap which I have only found in bottles in most places. We started with the mussels which were excellent. The chicken on a waffle was a very interesting... More

I had never been here before, but have been wanting to go for some time and I must say I was not disappointed. I ordered s'mores waffles, the waiter kinda was negative towards it saying he didn't like s'mores but I ordered it anyways. It was so delicious and I ate every single bite of it. They have plenty of... More

So take a walk on the (semi) wild dude and try Belgian food. (There are European cuisines other than Italian...) Taste of Belgium is housed in a creatively deviated space offering traditional mussels and waffles. My colleague enjoyed the chicken and waffles while I appreciated the vegetarian crepe. The meal cam to a Felicia closer with a chocolate crepe. (To... More

Stopped here for coffee and a light breakfast. I've had better coffee but it was still good! Ordered the belgium roast and the lavander lemon crepe. The crepe was delicious! My husband ordered the traditional crepe which was very filling. Glad we stopped here before we went home!
