Lovely. That’s how I’d describe this tea-room cum little grocery in Schaerbeek. You’ll find it just off the big Avenue Louis Bertrand.
The front of the place is a little shop with spices from exotic countries, crisps, all sorts of tea, jams and chocolate. Little treats in a pretty package. The rest of the shop is a tea-room with charming tables, set with china plates and cups.
But who is Louise? The host and baker of Les Trouvailles. Originally from the Philippines, she came to Brussels a while ago and decided to try her luck opening a tea-room in Schaerbeek.
I’m so glad she did, because Les Trouvailles is such a genuine gem. The banana muffins, the carrot cake, the chocolate brownies are divine. The English breakfast is very tasty, and the sunny garden is a big asset!
