This Cafè is really nice from many point of view. First of all, the location: it is situated in the city center in a cool square. Also the food (traditional belgian food) and beers are really good. The place is cozy, quiet, and cheap. Recommended.

The cafe and bar is located in the quarter of the Marolles. Parking on the street is possible but sparse. They have a large inside and outside dining area. The inside is decorated with a lot different chairs, tables and signs. We had coffee and...More

Smashing place on the corner of the square next to the flea market in Jeu de Balle. Not made to look old and interesting (you know who you are in the south of England), but genuinely just as it has evolved over time. Family run...More

A true neighbourhood, locals bar with no pretensions or frills. Classic cafe with bric-a-brac abounding including a dark wooden model of a building of sorts hanging out from over the bar. Food is excellent value and the sandwiches huge. A must-visit place.

If you're in the neighbourhood ("De Marollen") do stop. A very authentic place with a good selection of belgium beers combined with one of the best hamburgers we had for some time.

Spotted in one of the most authentic area of Bruxelles, if you're a tourist or just going down to Sablon, you should be better to stop in the corner. La Brocante, its design, its atmosphere, its beer and its chicons a gratin are simply one...More

I was looking a place to have a beer and it was perfect. They have a very large choise of belgian beers. You can also eat some typical belgian food. It's simple but good and the portions are large.

The food is great with a great selection of beers. Lasagna was excellent and the soups perfect for a cold fall day. The best part was the server was fun and very accommodating. (And entertaining!!)
