Yawn Space

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on November 11, 2014 in City Centre, Clothes

There’s a new concept store in town. One with a very particular concept: fashion, accessories and items from Russia, Georgia and the Ukraine.

Too Many Vintage

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on October 26, 2014 in City Centre, Clothes

There aren’t many vintage shops on this blog, I know. That’s because I’m not the most eager thrift shopper in town. But the selection at the newly opened Too Many Vintage could convert me: oversized woollen coats, large cardigans and leather skirts … yes!

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.

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.

Origami

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on January 15, 2014 in City Centre, Clothes

THIS SHOP UNFORTUNATELY CLOSED DOWN.Another new concept store, yes! I love them, because they sell a little bit of everything and are the perfect place to discover new brands. You’ll find Origami down Rue des Chartreux, right across from the Italian restaurant Divino.

Au Vieux Saint-Martin

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on January 7, 2014 in City Centre, Drink, Eat, Sunday

A brasserie on Sablon, open since 1968 and a menu featuring the very best of Belgian food. Add great service, a bit of a nostalgic vibe and Belgian artwork on the walls … and you get Au Vieux Saint-Martin.

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.

Hortense

I’ve been wanting to visit this place for ages, but I never got around to it. A birthday celebration this weekend was the perfect opportunity though. And Hortense did not disappoint.
