Spotted in one of the most authentic area of Bruxelles, if you're a tourist or just going down to Sablon, you should be better to stop in the corner. La Brocante, its design, its atmosphere, its beer and its chicons a gratin are simply one of the best memories of all people came to visit me. On Sunday then it's... More

I was looking a place to have a beer and it was perfect. They have a very large choise of belgian beers. You can also eat some typical belgian food. It's simple but good and the portions are large.

The food is great with a great selection of beers. Lasagna was excellent and the soups perfect for a cold fall day. The best part was the server was fun and very accommodating. (And entertaining!!)

Went here twice after the local flea market, great baguettes and a great selection of beers, it can get really crowded but it has a great atmosphere. There are tables outside as well.

Very lovely and helpful staff. Really enjoyed the Péche au Thon, was a tasty surprise. Near the flea market, but in a nice and quiet corner.

Popped in there this morning fro some brunch and found the special chilli spot on. Washed down with a glass of gueuze (sour traditional Flemish beer) and just watched the world go by. What more could you ask for ?

Called in for breakfast and were served with great looking sandwiches and good coffee. This will get you started. View overlooking the marketplace is nice, traffic comes close though. Sandwiches tastes great whilst it wasn't our ordinary choice. Service was nice and prices are fair. Bathroom could get a upgrade though. This place has potential.

This typical Belgian cafe, with reputedly good food is right by the flea market- a good place to drink a last few beers before catching the Eurostar from the Gare de Midi, a 15 minute walk away. We had Torpah 90 by Brewery {C}- top class. We didn't eat, having not long had a big breakfast, although most people were... More

Popped in there for lunch this afternoon and were not disappointed. Home-made stoemp & omelettes were great. Staff very friendly - as always. Well-recommended.
