“Nice coffee shop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Came here for a coffee, cake and a chill out! Somewhere abit different to Costa!! There selection of cakes are great! So much to choose from, they all looked great! Coffee was as expected, but did come with a little chocolate which was nice - abit pricey for what it is, but a nice experience and I would recommend as an interesting change :-)

“not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I met a friend here for lunch.. we waited ages to be served, and then even longer to get our food. when it arrived it was ok, nothing to write home about. we seemed to be in there forever. we had to wait for our drinks which they forgot and had to go find a waitress to remind them.
there cakes look amazing but in reality are very bland or dry. bit disapointed

“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!!!
