Great coffee shops and stores however note that there is an orange electrical bus that makes a ring to and from Grand Place so use it

Some nice shops and restaurants , perfect for a stroll , not cheap !! The Saturday market is over priced. Walk down the hill to Chapelle ( 2 minutes) better choice and cheaper.Picnic bar is good to people watch .

If you want a moment away from the galleries and museums, but not very far away, then visit Place du Grand Sablon. Nice shops - my favourite were the chocolate shops and the Tintin Herge shop, the church and the market. But enjoy the architecture...More

Had a wander round the market and the stalls selling a variety of antiques, nothing took my fancy but was intrigued to see every thing they were selling. It's a bit of a way out from the centre but worth the walk as there's lots...More

...a little off the beaten tracks for the usual traveller, but worth a small detour. It's a nice square in a friendly neighbourhood, with many small restaurant and bars surrounding it.

Ideal for strolling through the market although the items are over priced and not always antiques, however the pavement cafes around and patisseries are delicious

One of the nicest squares in Brussels. I love mostly the shops that surround it particularly the good restaurants that you can find in the square. My favourite is L'Entree Des Artistes.

One of the prettiest places in Brussels. Very elegant, overpriced, snobby but who's paying? There is a well-known café/pastry shop named Wittamer here, but it is mostly snobby and not really very special, IMHO.
