Excellent variety of options. Good for vegetarians and healthy eaters. Plenty of options for others as well. Super large cappuccino served in a bowl! One of our favorite brunches in Brussels close to Cinquantenaire.

Had the croquet monsieur for brunch. The homemade tomato ketchup was quite nice, though I was not expecting the croque to have so much mustard on it (overpowered the rest of the flavours). Service is extremely slow. Personally found the price to be a bit high considering the quality; I think you could spend the same amount and have a... More

We paid this place a visit after walking around the Parc de Centenaire. It had a great menu for brunch as well as some excellent pastries. There was also a good selection of coffee and tea.

The place closes at 8pm which is very handy when you're looking for a nice hot chocolate with real Belgian chocolate after working hours. The place looks like any other Pain Quotidien (wooden floor, furniture...) and staff is nice. What a nice surprise when they offered us a piece of "galette des rois", they probably produced too many for those... More

Visited on number of times for weekend lunch (not to mention all the bread and pastries I take to go). The food is always tasty, very consistent, plenty of options for all taste buds. The service is fine. The prices, you know, it's healthy and organic, so no bargain there... That being said, I'll be back again.

Me and a colleague went here for breakfast because the hotel we stayed at called a ridiculous price. I have issues with Lactose and try to avoid Gluten. Therefor this is the right place: They even offer Gluten-free Muffins! :)

Don't expect the personnel to be quick and smiley - you will have to wait to be seated, to be served and even to pay your bill... The prices are extra high for the simpliest things you get on this planet: if you want to get a coffee and a croissant, be ready to pay at least 6 Eur, if... More
