“Lovely little coffee shop hidden away”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Don't miss this place if you're in Brussels. It's a lovely little coffee shop with an African vibe. It's quite small and can get busy. Delicious lattes. We definitely had to stop by again before we left!

“Very inspiring! ”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

It is a small coffee house, but very beautiful. You might pass by and not even see it, but this is one of its speciality in my opinion. I tried it few days ago, an the coffee is really good. I think it is one of those places when you need to have some nice time of relax over a good coffee. Personally, I'll go back maybe to enjoy writing something or just have a good time with a friend.
I strongly recommend it, the prices are fairly ok.
Wish you good times.

“Real coffee and friendly service”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Stayed in Brussels for three months and have been to this little coffee shop on numerous occasions. The coffee is excellent and all set in cosy, intimate surroundings. The staff are very friendly, remembering my preferred order each time. The cakes all look amazing too! Worth a visit!

“Beautiful place! Must visit! ”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

I'm just about to leave this little, and I mean little, gem. I've devoured their Passionfruit cake and caffelatte and feel renewed. I fully understand why this place came so highly recommended to me. You can enjoy wondrous food against a backdrop of soulful music, dark woods, cute tables, colourful Ethiopia-centric wall pictures on bright white walls, and that oh so good smell of coffee. And the place is heaving! Keep up the great work guys. Mmmuuaa!

“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Excellent coffee, very good cake, friendly service - what more can you want? Do mind that this isn't a suitable lunch place, unless all you require for lunch is cake.
