This is a great place to take a break, the ethiopian coffee is roasted in house so the coffee you get is really fresh , they have several types to choose from which they explain to you [ you can also buy the beans to take away and grind yourself ] they make a great vegetable quiche and some tasty looking cakes..great location near the fashion museum,in an elegant C19th shop..

After reading all the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, The Girl and I came here for breakfast in Brussels before setting off from the city. The setting is basic but charming, old newspaper clippings decorating the tables and African art adorning the walls. Our host was very friendly, helpfully pointing out an English language menu that we had overlooked! Despite it being a warm August morning, I could not resist trying the hot chocolate to go with a refreshing passion fruit tart and was very glad that I did - it's seriously delicious. The Girl had a latte with a another tart, also very good. I could not leave without trying the coffee so was made an excellent macchiato whilst being told about the different types of bean available for sale by the barista, who was knowledgeable on his subject. Bag of coffee as a gift for The Father and we were on our way - perked up for our drive to Bruges!

Calm, friendly atmosphere in the café - nicely decorated inside, and happy to see that the fabulous original exterior is unchanged. Coffee and cake (lime tart) both delicious. Perfect location to fortify oneself for a shopping spree at Peau d'Ane, further along the street!

Good place to stop and enjoy a hot chocolate, quality coffee, and some nice lemon pie... Only drawback for me are the incredibly uncomfortable chairs. It made sitting too long painful.

It's amazing how peaceful this place is, considering how close it is to the market. Run by Ethiopian Christians, ut seems, it offers excellent coffee as well as hot chocolate made from solid chocolate and hot milk. You can also buy their coffee to take home with you!
