“Lovely shops, great architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Stroll up one side and down the other to enjoy Place Sablon. While my favorite tarte cafe is gone, there are still plenty of cafes (on the pricey side), including the wonderful Wittamer Tea house for exquisite coffees, desserts and salads. Gien has lovely French tableware. This is a lovely side of Brussels.

“the ...place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Woooo! Is the square of CHOCOLAT! Most of chocolat companies and innovative chefs are showing around the square their production. Also on Saturday a real antiques bazaar covers most of the square as during the week you can see equal nice items in the shops around...

“gorgeous Place with lots of chocolateries and antique shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Even if you can't afford the prices of the shops, it's great to pop in, snoop around and laugh at all the curiosities you might find. It's also just a short walk away from central Bruxelles (Grand Place etc.) so you might as well explore the area a little and stroll around.
