2/ Boulangerie Charli for its freshly made traditional organic breads and sandwiches.

3/ Le temps des Tartines for its home-made ‘baguettes’ and pastries.

4/ Pistolet Original is a bar where only ‘pistolets’ or Belgian style bread rolls are served. For many Belgians a crunchy ‘pistolet’ is the breakfast favourite on Sunday morning. You can have it with shrimp salad, camembert, minced meat with pickles, roast beef,… or the classic burger for the fans.

Taverne L’Espérance because of its architectural Art Deco style. One of the few remaining Art Deco Pearls of the city. Relive the nostalgic Charleston years !

Or does she/he prefer the Brussels Waffle and ‘Speculoos’ biscuits? No problem, we know where to go: Maison Dandoy. Maison Dandoy has been declared as Brussels best biscuits-maker.…The biscuits are made by hand with care and passion. And that’s exactly what you taste.
