Was recommended the farmers breakfast as brunch option. And ordered a cappuccino. Very ordinary breakfast that I feel is overpriced for its quality. Coffee is bland (to be fair coffee in most of Belgium has been pretty poor). Has a nice crowded ambience if you like sitting shoulder to shoulder with locals and people watch. A decent place for breakfast... More

We like the ambiance of this place especially during Sundays, its tartines are nice and fullfilling especially the one with avocados. This place has many pastries' temptations, that you could easily fall for, so watch out :-) but the good news that you could find healthy sweet bites, as alternatives!

A nice place to have lunch, right on the Sablon Square in the middle of the old town. Many healthy options for lunch to choose from, but also many delicious pastries and lovely homemade lemonade. On warm days the "orangerie" is open so you can enjoy an al fresco lunch.

The place was not only half full but they still managed to let us wait 1h and not bring the breakfast we ordered. Last time I went there.

I went there with some friends for having lunch. I order CURRY POT PIE, which it is with pie and smoked chicken but mine it was without any chicken and pie. The curry sauce was not tasty and very watery. It was not that crowded but staffs were the whole time walking around without having any attention to costumers, for... More

In the Sablon area, Le Pain Quotidien is the ideal choice for a light meal of soup, sandwiches, a quiche or a salad, or coffee and cake. We especially like the croissants, which are crispy and flaky as they should be. The sandwiches with salmon or tuna are also yummy. The place is big and cosy, with wooden floors and... More

It's found in Paris and New York, but this internationally renowned bakery is a Belgian invention, and many folks admit that this is still the best bread in the city. In truth, it's not just a bakery, but also a patisserie, delicatessen, snack bar and coffee house. Their farmers' bread is still baked by artisans. This shop (as well as its 10 other Brussels locations) has a provincial atmosphere, decorated with pine furniture and cream-coloured walls. The menu includes a selection of open sandwiches (try the typical cheese platter with radish and onions), salads and tarts.
