bake windowBAKE is a small baking business run by Bérangère. She specialises in all things American (cookies, brownies and cakes, yum). And while she has no shop of her own, she sells her bakes at some of the city’s best coffee spots. And … she made bake-your-own cookie boxes, which I tried, tasted and loved! … continue reading.


Christmas decoration

On November 16, 2014 in Uncategorized

From traditional wooden decoration to all things glitter and kitsch, here are my favourite spots to find everything you need (and more) to get into the Christmas ho-ho-holiday spirit (sorry, couldn’t resist).


Yawn Space

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.


The Black Sheep

On November 3, 2014 in Burgers, Drink, Eat, Ixelles, Sunday

When choosing a bar for a night out, the same issue always pops up: the girls want a place where they have decent wine and cocktails, and the boys need an extensive beer menu. The Black Sheep behind Place Flagey has got both, and serves a mean burger to boot.


Too Many Vintage

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!



On October 19, 2014 in Coffee, Eat, Saint-Gilles

Biting into one of Forcado’s ‘pastel de nata’ was one of the tastiest experiences ever. Sweet, creamy, crusty … it put a big smile on my face! This delicious custard tart is available from the Portuguese bakery on Chaussée de Charleroi.


Ponti Corner

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

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.


Bocca Moka

On September 22, 2014 in Coffee, Drink, Saint-Gilles

I’ve been meaning to post a review on Bocca Moka for ages, but somehow I never got around to it. This new-ish coffee bar deserves all the attention, as the brews (and the cakes) are delicious.



On September 14, 2014 in Eat, Ixelles

Now here’s a restaurant nearly everybody’s talking about. With good reason: Japanese ramen bar Kokuban is every bit as good as you’d expect.
