I must have walked passed St Anny Food a thousand times, but never noticed the sign that said Chinese tearoom. Tearoom means cakes and sweet buns, so in the shop I went to please my sweet tooth.
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.
