We ordered omlette, and it was not cooked, basically raw eggs. Not good. The waiter told us that if we wanted the omlette cooked well we should have told. But nobody asked us how we want it.

This corner bar has a couple of things going for it. The number of beers is huge and even hard to choose from. Their terras has a view of the market Square so you can enjoy the people go by.

Superb quality>price ratio and a great ambient. We weren't very hungry and we purchased two sandwiches. The meat was very tasty and we had no problem communicating in English with the staff. Great place overall

Nice place - the coffee and croissant I had were fine, and the cat came over to visit me - next best thing to a cat café in central Brussels.
