Delicious and beautiful!

A short walk from the Grand Place area, definitely worth it if you like dessert! Absolutely delicious macarons, Rose was our favorite!

This is a famous chocolatier shop. The best thing to do at this shop is to buy a box of chocolate which is prepared from cocoa grown from different part of the world. They all taste so different. Its a amazing journey to know such a difference and you might also end up finding your favorite cocoa. This is must... More

Don't miss this gourmet chocolatier. Fantastic chocolate with elegant flavours. The boxes look like they contain jewels! Pierre Marcolinis macarons are fantastic as well. I suggest you try all the flavours, but my two favourites are Pistachio and Passion fruit. Great gift boxes as well.

True, not so much of an attraction, but if you are in the city, this might be the place you'll find yourself keep returning to. Everything is just good, decor is in good taste, and the personnel are the nicest people you'll meet in Brussels.

If your wallet allow, do try their macarons, cakes, and éclairs - it's very unlikely that you will regret.

You must make a stop here when in Brussels! The entire building is decorated with gorgeous flowering vines and there's a stunning café area on the second floor where you can buy coffee, chocolate, ice cream, etc. There are large picture windows looking over the street, and the flowering vines wrap inside, creating a space that looks like it's from...

Pleasant place. But did they use soya lecithin ? If you want to buy overpriced chocolates in beautiful boxes. The chocolate is nothing special. In Brussels there are so many chocolatier with the same or higher quality. The ice cream is gorgeous! Congratulations!

Its chocolates are good but pricing become tricky: Marcolini has always been reluctant to advertise the prices of its boxes by their weight. You knew you were buying a one, two, three tray box but whether it was 200,300, 500 grams was not an easy guess: you had to ask. The chocolates are usually small. But a new thing has... More

We visited Pierre Marcolini after Planet chocolate where we got poor quality sweets. In this store, the staff was very friendly and the chocolate itself was very high quality! Very recommend! Probably the best place to get sweets in Brussels.
