Ah Bon? is a little eatery, serving organic and local food with an Italian twist. Their tasty homemade spelt flour piadina come with a variety of stuffings, and are very much worth a little detour.
I like chocolate. The darker the better. No creamy fillings or special flavours for me. Although, I have one weakness: orange peel covered with dark chocolate. And chocolate maker Laurent Gerbaud is a master in combining fruits with chocolate.
Aha! And then I discovered an English eatery with a little grocery store selling all the best British treats: scones, lemon curd, pies, cider, relish and much more. Oh, and they have bubble and squeak on the menu!
While Avenue Louise is paved with shops, there aren’t that many spots to grab a bite to eat, drink a decent coffee or chill with some free wifi. Workshop Café is just what the area needed: a very big breakfast, lunch and coffee place.
Jynga is a patisserie run by a Brazilian/Portuguese duo. Think pastéis de nata (custard tart), bolo de arroz (sort of cake) and many other sweet treats. Delicioso!
Just from the look of this place, I could tell that lunch was going to be a treat. And I was right. A generous salad with fresh ingredients was just what I needed after all the end-of-year dinners and drinks.
When I noticed Kitchenette for the first time, I thought it was a vintage furniture shop. They hadn’t opened yet, and all you could see were orange retro lamps and cute wooden cabinets. A bit later, I learned it was a new coffee/sandwich/cookie shop. Even better!
In a little cobbled street connecting Boulevard Anspach with Rue Marché au Charbon you’ll find Yeti. An eatery serving healthy comfort food: homemade breakfast, brunch, lunch and treats, made from local and seasonal produce.
If you’re bored with the traditional sandwich for lunch, then I strongly recommend a trip to Nonno on Rue Haute. This Italian eatery serves delicious piadina for lunch, flatbread packed with tasty ingredients.
