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.

“Hands down my favorite restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

Gosh I cannot say enough great things about this place. The decor is beautiful. Very chic and ecclectic. The food is phenomenal. For brunch, the belgian French toast is delicious. Now if you're doing dinner here, you must must must get the chicken and waffles. MUST. (If you are expecting Roscoes, you're at the wrong place). The combination of the sweet waffle with the crisp chicken, seriously perfection. I also have to get a side of Belgian frites. Mmm with the Chipole mayo, this is to die for! Now you're on to dessert, if you're not already stuffed. They have an entire dessert case filled with all kinds of goodies to choose from. If you want to keep it simple just go for another waffle with fruit & cream, or the banana Nutella waffle? S'mores waffle with homemade marshmallow??? By far, this restaurant is my most favorite. Absolute perfection.

“Adorable.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013 via mobile

I wasn't quite sure how to feel. I mean the signature dish is a Waffle Chicken? But my fears were put to rest by the hostess Pamela who assured me it was going to be "awesome". It was. Will return.

“Either choice, crepes or waffles, you can't go wrong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Just stumbled upon this lovely restaurant downtown. Although it was quite crowded, we were seated immediately at the crepe bar. Loved watch the chef create crepes during our visit.

We had both the crepes and waffles, eggs, bacon, meatballs & frites. The food was excellent.

Coffee great too!

“Something different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a quaint little place near Downtown Cincinnati, but the inside atmosphere feels eurpoean. The food especially the Belgian waffles are really good. Their coffee is awesome if you like it strong. The only thing is... this place is crowded for brunch on weekends, so there is usually a wait time of about 15 minutes and no real waiting place. So people just wait inside the restaurant in the walkways and its annoying to have to move every time the waiters carry food to and from the kitchen. The restaurant should make better arrangements for people who are waiting to get in.
