“Lacking something to make it great”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The location is perfect, the concept is charming, the waiters are hot (well, some at least), the food is good, yet something is missing. Maybe it's the rushed service, maybe it's the poor presentation (how about a leaf of salad with those tartines?!), or maybe the chipped crockery... but a little could go a very long way here.

“Great choice of sandwiches and the best tea in Brussels”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Lovely place for lunch with super sandwiches, great coffee and probably the best cup of tea in Brussels. Super location just off Ave Louise so perfect for a stop off while shopping.

“Open sandwiches any style”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Love their choice of open sandwiches. And if you can't decide which one you want, you can order a little combination platter. They also do excellent tea and cakes. Perfect for breakfast, lunch and afternoon. Shame they are not open in the evenings.

“The best carbonara in town!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

It's only open at lunch time and afternoons, which is a shame but whenever I have the opportunity I go there to have my carbonara. To me it's the best one in Brussels.
