“Worth a visit.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Ive been to this Belgique a few times - because for a cafe the menu is different from the others in the area offering nicely filled breads & rolls with interesting fillings. Problem is the menu looks great but what you actually get isn't as good as you would imagine. There's no chef here which is quite obvious. The place is run by solemn looking young women; service is a struggle - you'll end up ordering at the counter because you wont get noticed if you don't and the food is prepared /reheated onto your plate with not a lot of passion - certainly not as much as the menu gives!!!! I do go back as my missus loves the patisserie - but you could take them away!!!

“Nice location, Food OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Went for lunch here with a friend. We waited ages and ages to be served and it wasn't that busy. However when we eventually got our food it was OK.
