This cafe is located in the building of the Mas museum. There is a good range of draught beers and drinks. After a visit to the museum we enjoyed sheltering from the rainy weather in here. The cava and beer were good, the staff were pleasant and helpfully gave me the code for the Wi-Fi. We might try it for... More

Great cafe, lovely location. Service suffered a little when we were there but it was a very busy day for them (Easter Sunday). Most importantly: GF bread options available! I had soup, was delicious.

We'd gone to the observation terrace at MAS & decided to have lunch in the cafe. Very pleased we did - very tasty panini and a good range of beers. My wife enjoyed the coffee and apple cake. Prices were reasonable. Recommended.

We had 2 coffees on the sunny terrace and they were ok. The service however lacked friendliness, inspiration and motivation. You are lucky if they spot you from the first time, if not, waive again and again. Either their shift was almost over or they just couldn't give a damn about the customers. The place is so popular that they... More

The coffee, mind you, is fine, but service is casual. One gets the feeling that one is not really welcome and that the staff would rather be left alone.

Located just underneath the MAS, Storm boasts some excellent food and drinks, whether you're after a snack and a beer (as I was) or a meal with a group, after wandering the city and exploring the wonderful MAS this was a good choice. A little more pricey than smaller venues you encounter, the staff are lovely and the food delicious.... More

We enjoyed our coffee but the waiters looked as if they had overdone the Christmas celebrations. They acted as if they would rather have been somewhere else. We did not stay long.

I visited the museum and on first stumbling into this cafe, thought I would only stay because I was desperate to eat. There was no assistance in finding a table and you really feel unwelcome. The decor is interesting, the walls, bar etc look nice, however the tables don't seem to fit, they are grubby and look more like a... More

The people who work at this bar are a threat to tourism in Belgium. You're better off walking across the street where they ask you to politely order inside.

The STORM museum cafe is the new 'place to be' in the Eilandje district.
Comfortable leather benches invite visitors to reflect on their visit of MAS. But you can also head there with colleagues after a hectic working day or enjoy a moment of peace and quiet before or after a day's shopping on the terrace. Architect Kurt Hereygers used a mix of 'rich' and 'poor' materials for the cafe's interior: leather, oak, mirrors, multiplex and concrete, finished in warm hues. The eye-catching feature is the huge wall cabinet. The menu features small, healthy and seasonal fast food dishes in addition to Illy coffee, Oxfam Fair Trade juices and beers, alcoholic beverages and wine.
