It could easily be nr1 sandwich bar in Belgium just because of how much love and effort the guys are putting in their work! No joke, you feel good vibes inside :)

I can't believe I lived in Brussels for ten years without trying this place!! It is every bit as good as the reviews say it is. Won't bother repeating them, but you must go here if you ever have the opportunity.

Tasty sandwiches but a bit pity that we came 2 times on working hours and it was closed. No explanation on doors nothing. I was dreaming about to get nice sandwich but oh well...

Excellent shop for a quick bite, the owner knows his menu inside out and takes the time to learn what you like before suggesting a few options from his extensive menu.... 47 different options if I remember correctly. If you don't like it you don't...pay.... Don't think hell have had to refund many people. Large selection of cheese paired excellently with meat, tomatoes, pears, fresh tapenade among others. Breaks baked fresh throughout the day. The only thing better than the sandwiches is the owners passion for his craft!More

Simply one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. The service is simply perfect, I honestly have nothing to say. I’m looking forward to coming back to Brussels and to have another of their sandwiches again. Every cheese love should visit this place.

Amazing sandwiches, amazing service. We went here 3 different times on our 5 day trip to Brussels. The two brothers are incredibly kind and welcoming and make the best sandwiches. You have to come here!

The sandwiches are the special thing, the only thing, but trust me it will blow your mind. You can also buy drinks and a daily homemade soup. But the sandwiches are why you go there.
