“Excellent sorbet and ice cream”

Have bought chocolates here before, but this was the first time for ice cream. Amazing. Not too sweet - like some are, when after a few bites you no longer enjoy or can even taste the flavours. Not the case here. About 12 amazing ice cream flavours - I had one scoop of dark chocolate and orange, with pieces of cooked oranges. Also a selection of sorbets - orange and pepper was delicious and a perfect complement to the ice cream flavour I chose. I had a cup, but next time am going with a cone - cones are hand-dipped in amazing very dark chocolate! The maitre himself was there dishing out ice cream.
I am already planning a return visit soon!

The place is beautiful and open, you get a clear view of the workshop and where the magic happens.
It's not a restaurant but a chocolate shop and boy do they sell some good stuff. I can highly recommend that you get a cup of hot chocolate to go.
It's on the expensive side but quality doesn't come cheap.

Oh. My. God. I remember getting to Belgium and thinking I had made a mistake visiting. We pushed on and made it to Frederic Blondeel and it truly saved the trip. Some of the most amazingly, smooth and rich chocolate I have had in my LIFE. Whatever your preference, everything is good. Eat your hearts fill because this chocolate is some of the best you will ever have.

Such a great little place. The chocolate was amazing and the service was great as well. They were extremely patient and helped me pick everything that I wanted, I even got a few samples for free.

Beautiful to look at and amazing to taste, the chocolates in this shop were wonderful. The hot chocolate was a real treat. Because the shop is just off a major intersection where two other chocolatiers stand out, you might miss this hidden gem. Do look for it - it is smaller than some of the other shops and well worth the trip.
