The first caffe latte I ever tried was there and I absolutely loved it. Took some Belgian chocolate to the place with me and sat outside to enjoy my drink. They also sell Ethiopian coffee whole beans or grounded to your preference. I took some coffee back home and my parents loved it as well. If you love coffee then... More

After a long day walking around Brussels, I stopped in here based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor, and it was the perfect place to rest my feet, enjoy a cup of tea, and read my book for a while. Perfect ambiance, not touristy at all, and the service was wonderful. The hibiscus tea is fantastic!

This bar offered the normal ranges of coffee with different styles and quantities of milk and amarula liquer. The coffee was ethiopian and the espresso I tried was professionally made, extracting the real flavours of the beans with acids and saltiness jumping out on my palette which might overpower the amateur taster who should better take a latte. I also... More

Did you know coffee could naturally taste like lemons or peaches? Try Aksum's organic locally roasted coffees for a surprising tasty treat!

There are two types of coffee Pap, the owner, uses for his coffee. Try the softer version which has a creamy soft and lemony chocolate flavour. Just devine !

The coffee is great, easily among the very best you can have in Brussels. The cakes are so so but wont ruin the experience. Two things to note, in our experience: the place is tiny and more often than not we have been unable to sit. The seating itself is not the most comfortable you can imagine, more for a... More

Lovely local cafe, serving coffee and few sweet and savoury snacks. Would be a regular if lived nearby!
