Forcado

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on October 19, 2014 in Coffee, Eat, Saint-Gilles

Biting into one of Forcado’s ‘pastel de nata’ was one of the tastiest experiences ever. Sweet, creamy, crusty … it put a big smile on my face! This delicious custard tart is available from the Portuguese bakery on Chaussée de Charleroi.

Ponti Corner

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on October 13, 2014 in City Centre, Coffee, Drink, Eat, Sunday

Ponti Corner just opened near Bourse, a few houses away from the famous Fritland and Brasserie Falstaff. I thought it would be a tourist-y place, but it’s nothing like that (forgive me dear reader, I get it wrong sometimes).

Mémé Café

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on September 28, 2014 in City Centre, Coffee, Eat

Don’t be fooled by its name, Mémé Café has got nothing to do with old ladies (mémé being the Brussels word for grandmother). It’s a cozy eatery with vegan, vegetarian and gluten free food, both sweet and savoury.

Bocca Moka

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on September 22, 2014 in Coffee, Drink, Saint-Gilles

I’ve been meaning to post a review on Bocca Moka for ages, but somehow I never got around to it. This new-ish coffee bar deserves all the attention, as the brews (and the cakes) are delicious.

Knees to Chin

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on September 8, 2014 in Coffee, Eat, Ixelles

Lunch on a work day usually equals a quick cheese sandwich on the go. Boring, but it does the trick. On my (rare) days off, I’d love to discover something new. And the rice paper rolls at Knees to Chin were the perfect change from my routine.

Peck 47

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on August 4, 2014 in City Centre, Coffee, Drink, Eat, Sunday

Somehow I never made it to Peck 47, until last week. I had heard and read great things about the place, so I walked in with high expectations. I liked it, but didn’t leave raving about it, as others seemed to do.

Pistolet Original

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on December 20, 2013 in City Centre, Coffee, Drink, Eat, Sunday

The ‘pistolet’ used to be quite the hero of many bakeries. A small round bun, crisp on the outside and very light and fluffy inside. It has lost some popularity over the years (to the bigger baguette), but there’s a new eatery at Sablon, keen to restore the pistolet in all its glory.

John & Rose

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on December 18, 2013 in City Centre, Coffee, Drink, Eat, Sunday

John & Rose is an art café on Rue de Flandre: a very spacious place with art on the walls and a lovely food and drinks menu.

Gazzetta

This small Italian deli is tucked away behind Avenue Louise, but well worth looking for. Coffee, Italian pastry, wine and simple food .. molto bene!

Lavazza Boutique

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on November 3, 2013 in City Centre, Coffee

Italian coffee maker Lavazza opened its first boutique in Brussels. I had to check it out of course.
