The restaurant mention they have gluten free options but everything is contaminated with gluten. Even the salad has gluten.

We wanted to have a quick lunch. We had to wait 1 hour to get our food served. We could see our orders came out of the kitchen, but no waiter took action to serve. We had to ask at least 3 times. Very disappointed.

We decided to have a quick lunch around 2 o-clock and stooped there as we knew the place . It was not overcrowded and we could find a table easily. Long and ratehr inefficient service as we waited for about 45 minutes to receive our orders (two taritnes and one pot-au-feu). food was good but why was is it so... More

If it is cold and getting late but you need Belgian hot chocolate and pastries: you're in luck! Lovely clean and bright setting, wooden tables, excellent hot chocolate... they have lots of bakery products too and were clearly popular and taking orders for Christmas. Toilets were clean too.

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!

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.
