“Unprofessional staff and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

Normally I almost never review something in hometown Brussels but this was so shocking. Last time I was here was some years ago and they had nice staff and enjoyable cakes. Now turning back to this place to show a friend something really nice, I was disappointed from beginning till the end.
We ordered cappuccino (3,5€), moka (3.5€) and an icecream (8€) with 2 spoons to share. We got a moka with chantilly (4€) and an icecream with 1 spoon. I ask for the cappuccino, a moka without chantilly and an extra spoon. But got the answer I didn't order that. Finally, in a very bad mood he brought some kind of cappuccino, a completely tasteless moka with chantilly and an extra spoon. This served on a dirty plate and without any extra. And certainly no apologies, we should be happy to receive it. Totally overpriced !!!

For sure no return to this place.

“Lovely place, lovely food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Lovely cafe serving drinks and small bites: perfect for a small lunch with a friend, if you can get a table - it tends to fil up quickly. Nice friendly service

“Delicious for breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I've eaten here a number of times for a late breakfast or lunch. Excellent light dishes and pastries. In warm weather, very nice to sit outside and watch the well-heeled shoppers of Brussels passing by.

“Lacking something to make it great”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.
