What more can I say? The waffles are fantastic. Do yourself a favor and sit down upstairs in the dining room and order some liege waffles. I promise that you won't regret it.

The waffles were delicious. I had the Belgian which was crisp and just the right level of sweet. Would be good even without toppings. The coffee was not good. Maybe the tea is better. Service was fine - not friendly but prompt.

It's a really good place for waffles! We had two different kinds, and they were quite delicious. Do NOT order coffee there! It had a terrible flavor - I then learned that Brussels is not a place where the coffee is good. Other than that,...More
