Stumbled upon this adorable patisserie specializing in meringue topped with whip cream and covered in different toppings. The meringue melts in your mouth and the harmony of the flavours is delicate and perfect. This place is so good we made another stop when we were...More

Best meringue covered with cream and other topping. Do not miss it. Take a look inside from the window to see how they do it and let you slip in the 19th century atmosphere of the shop. Treat yourself, taste different flavours.

The brioche are soft and wonderful, warm from the oven and rather addictive. Having to post your money into a self-service till seems odd but then I suppose that the staff don't have to handle dirty money. This is a bakery only with no seating...More

You must try this bakery if you are in Brussels centre. We tried the different kinds of the mini Merveilleux. They are all amazing. Also, the brioche were all fresh and very tasty. We went back twice.
