Even though I have my favourite places to grab a coffee in the area surrounding Avenue Louise, I ended up somewhere different last week: at Greenhouse, a tea-room/eatery tucked away between the many shops on the street.
This old, little shop near Grand Sablon is one you’ll want to come back to. Packed with all things tasty: spices, jars with sweet and savoury contents, and a counter bulking with fresh and home-made food.
This luxury supermarket is located in Fort-Jaco (Uccle), an area that doesn’t feel like Brussels at all. With plenty of upscale boutiques in the area, food shopping at La Grand Epicerie feels rather fancy too.
I’m a big fan of the No Concept fashion stores, because of their great selection of brands and clothes. The team opened a new shop in Uccle, including a little eatery and space for home decoration, on top of their ever-so-large range of clothes.
Finum is a little shop in the commune of Jette, selling all sorts of treats: chocolates, tea, whiskey, biscuits and more. It’s been there for more than 20 years, and I don’t think it’s changed much over time. Very charming.
This old cheese shop in the city centre goes back to 1902. It has a charm no other deli in the wide neighbourhood can match, and the same goes for the quality and taste of their products sold.
I heard of this new candy store a while ago, but never managed to pay a visit… until today. It really is paradise for sugar lovers, with hard boiled sweeties in all colours and flavours, made right before your eyes.
A Brussels chain eatery to be proud of! What started about twenty years ago with a small bread shop in Rue Dansaert, grew into an international chain business with shops all over Europe, the United States and Australia.
Butcher Lanssens served its first customer in 1952. Ever since, the place has become very popular. On some days, you’ll even see people queueing … for the best sausages in town!
