We had a feeling that we have got robbed after having eaten our simple breakfast, which consisted of one cake, one pain au chocolat, one freshly squeezed orange juice, one tea. More than 20 Eur for that, no smile, really average service. Snobish place. Not recommended.

I went here with a friend thinking it would be a nice spot for a coffee. The restaurant was almost empty, there were only a few tables and yet we waited for more than 15 mins without even ordering or speaking to our server. If it had been rush hour with full tables I would understand that service was a... More

A nice terrace located in the middle of the shopping district of Brussels. Service is very friendly. You choose from an excellent variation of tea, or other beverages, and home made pastries.

This was the perfect mid afternoon stop. We had the goat cheese sandwich, a brie salad, a hamburger and the the croute. The service was fabulous; very gracious staff, and the food was excellent. The hamburger my son had was absolutely fantastic, ordered from the daily board, it does not appear on the menu. The sandwiches were also fresh, and... More

The crowd of "bobos" hanging out at this place gives staff a carte blanche to be impolite. Guess what: some of us would appreciate a smile and a bit of flexibility, and we are ready to reciprocate too! As much as I generally like the decoration and food, I try to avoid this place-especially on weekends.

This elegant café, located amongst some really nice shops, served good quality food, in good portions. The scrambled eggs were particularly tray.

If you like a proper cuppa in Brussels, this place is for you. A delish patisserie and a wondrous tearoom makes the menu worth its higher than local average prices. However, this is a really popular place especially for lunch or brunch. Because of this, some if the staff come off as snooty, in any language, and that puts me... More

We stopped in here for breakfast with a family of four. The tea house is next door to the Michael Kors bag shop . The outside area has heating so nice to sit on a chilly morning. This is a basic tea house selling tartines( sandwiches) breakfast favourites like eggs and bacon or simply a baguette with jam or ham.... More

Saturday morning, on cricket tour, 09.00 and nothing open for breakfast. Except this. And what a fantastic piece of luck that was. Scrambled eggs and ham tasted wonderful. Tea was nice too, as was the freshly squeezed orange juice. Well worth it.

Thank Daring-do
