In the historic Galeries St Hubert in the heart of Brussels, don't miss this restaurant for a drink or a typical Belgian snack or meal ! Sit inside (unpretentious decoration in café style) or in the shopping arcade. Enjoy for dessert a fruit or cream pie ! Great for breakfast, too! And for watching the colorful crowd, from all over...

The food was delicious, we had a belgian style tartar and a waffle with chocolate sauce and ice-cream afterwards. The service was friendly alltough they forgot about our waffle, but delivered it asap after I asked the waiter. Also its a great location to sit for a while and enjoy the athmosphere.

This cafe was a stones throw away from the hotel my husband and I were staying in. Situated within the Galeries St Hubert this cafe is in prime position. Although it is technically in a tourist trap it is usually full of locals which is what attracted us. The prices are reasonable and the service and food was very good.... More

Stopped off for a drink as walked past and looked nice. Deserts looked excellent, but didn't try. Just had a drink. Good service, excellent location.

Mokafe was listed in the guidebook as a good place to try the traditional waffles, and it was a good place to escape some rainy weather whilst also having a wander up the covered arcade of shops called Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert.

It was a really pleasant surprise. The place is very folkloric and a traditional Brussels old pub, feeling like stepping out in a Simenon novel. Menu offers classic Belgian dishes as well as modern food. The waiting and bar staff is uber friendly, helpful, funny : you absolutely have to strike a conversation with them and it'll make your meal... More

The cafe inside the Royal Galleries Saint-Hubert has a reputation to serve the best waffles in town. We went to have breakfast there, and were extremely happy with our choices: the waffles were freshly baked, crispy, with very light sugar icing. I had one with strawberries and whipped cream, and my partner ordered one with banana, ice cream and hot... More

I was looking for a cafe where I could sit with my dog and enjoy a light breakfast. My concierge recommended Mokafe because it was nearby in the Gallerie and since it was raining I thought it was a perfect idea. There's seating outside the cafe but still in the Gallerie so it's covered. They have an extensive menu, but... More

Located in the Galleria shopping center this Cafe is perfect in terms of location. Most of my party had the waffles and they reared over how light and tasty they were. I chose the pasta dish and it was well prepared and delicious. visit this Cafew
