No doubt what it should be ordered. Leffe beer, blond, bruins and royal. The location is good and staff were friendly and polite. It's a good place for a short break during your trip.

We weren't blown away. The mussels and fries were quite good though, and sitting outside was nice, but someone in our group ordered a flavoured beer and it tasted more like a candy drink than a beer. We had to pay for it anyway, as our server refused to take it back. Stick to the traditional blond beers. Service wasn't... More

At the end of a street with a great view of the centre of the Sablon.This is a great place to sit and watch the world walk by.Also to eat and drink! Really good food and not too expensive for Brussels considering you are in a very historical place.Nice staff and wifi!

Can't fault the beer however we were under the impression the bar was associated with Caffe Leffe. Upon asking the waiter there is no association and the waiter was unsure of where Leffe is brewed. Still a nice enough cafe / bar and pleasant surroundings.

We ran into this place not realizing it had a great view of the Grand Sablon square - just because there was a free table. The waiter saw our 5-month old daughter and was really attentive and helpful. For example, he asked some people around not to smoke and went away some 20 meters, when he needed a smoke himself....

We spent 4 days in Brussels, with our apartment opposite this cafe. Location is great and it can get very busy. Lots of different beers to choose and cafe latte's were very nice. Not the cheapest of bars but convenient to where we were located. We ate here one night,,chicken salad and Flemish stew. Average meal,,no mayo to go with... More

We had lunch at Café Leffe with a group of 6 people because the restaurant we planned to visit after the lunch concert in the “Eglise des Minimes” was closed. The interior of the roomy brasserie is rustic, with wooden floors and wooden furniture. Five of us had the dish of the day at 12.90 euro, which was woked chicken... More

A party of 9 of us for dinner, they accommodated easily outdoors, great spot to people watch and point out spots we'd like to check out. They were out of 3 meals in the menu, limited our choices. All we did get was good, not great. The owner was milling outside and checked on us several times and chatted. He... More

Beer was excellent. Thought about eating but worried about ever being served. Waiter managed the beer but spent a lifetime with my wife's drink, which someone else eventually brought. Promised us peanuts but they never arrived. Miscalculated the bill and gave us too much back. Maybe he was trying to live up to his Trip Advisor reputation?

Thank Richard J
