I must say chocolate is my favourite thing in the world. During my trip in Brussels, I tried many type of chocolate from different shops. Believe me when I say the chocolates from Frederic are amazing. Me and my boyfriend had a hot chocolate, which...was really good!!! We bought a lot of chocolates for us and for our family. The people were very nice. The place is really sweet and it smells of cocoa, as the factory is just behind the person who sells chocolates. Best chocolate experience ever!!More

I used to like this place. It was always a bit too cold in the winter but they served waffels with homemade sauces, hot chocolate with they own pralines. There was always something little more. This has changed. The place got new design and new...policy. You get the same stuff like everywhere in average quality. It may still be ok to buy their chocolate but I was so upset that I haven't even try. I took there my friend who visited Brussels and was very embarassed.More

I always buy here whenever I’m in Brussels. I think it’s a little more unique and harder to get than some of the big stores, so it makes a great gift to bring home (you can’t buy this stuff in the airport). My friends, family,...and coworkers have always loved it. The truffles are the best! This time I got to pick out some of the Easter candies which looked gorgeous.More

Popped in for Breakfast on Saturday morning. We had waffles and hot chocolate. Both were amazing. Would definitely recommend this place if you are in Brussels. We tried 6 of the pralines too which were soooo good!

There are beautiful chocolates on display, but the Hot chocolate is smooth and warming its a MUST There are only about 20 seats, but on a Saturday morning when we visited, it was filled with locals (always a good sign). The poor owner was very...busy, but he was warm & welcomingMore

We came as part of our chocolate tour and so glad this was a stop! Really divine chocolates! Wow! Decadent single origin varieties mixed with inventive flavors like cardamom and berries, chili and ginger, and jasmine tea. So many to choose from! Definitely worth a...visit!More

My partner was harassed by him. Long story short, he came up to my partner when he was just looking for the toilet to tell him how he “like him” (I think he doesn’t speak English very well I think he meant he like his...physique). He told my partner that his ex was the same size as him, “big chest”. My partner brushed it off and went to the toilet. The worst part was he was waiting for him outside of the toilet area to “talk” to him again and squeezed my partner’s arms just because he likes it. My partner was terrified and we left the place ASAP. Ps, the hot chocolate was ok. Not worth the second tripMore

I had read an article about the best chocolate shops in Brussels and Frederic Blondeel was on the list. We enjoyed the selection process and soon a great box of chocolates to bring home. The staff was helpful in the selection process. There are so...many kinds of chocolate to choose from. Definitely worth the visit.More

We went here on a chocolate tasting tour, and this chocolate was amazingly delicious. There were flavors I wouldn’t have thought would be good with chocolate, but was really good. They are closed on Mondays, so plan ahead.

I want to move to Brussels just so I can have one piece of chocolate from Frederic Blondeel every day. Once you taste his chocolates, nothing else will ever compare. This place is a hidden gem.

No but Blondeel, like Marcolini, roasts the beans himself.
