We found this by accident, but simply amazing- my boyfriend and I went back a second time in the same day! The cherry and the coffee ones especially were spectacular.

Bought some pastries and bread here and we were happy we did. Their product are sooo good. The service is wonderful with a great sense of humor and a kind and helpful attitude. The brioche with raisins is so delicious… We had some of their...pastries in Paris and we were delighted. Highly recommend!More

Really tremendous. Excellent room and shower. Spacious and contemporary. The bed linen was first class. Cool products too. Thoughtful to provide water and a good coffee maker. The location could not be better. Close to all the sights: all between 5 and 15 minutes stroll....Near bars, restaurants and shops. Very close to the Ghent altarpiece which is stunning. Ghent was an eye-opener for me. I didn’t quite know what to expect but rated it so highly that it filled up my little heart with joy. And this place to stay was the cherry on the icing on the cake. Would recommend at the drop of a hat. Some tips: because it’s central, there can be some noise from street level so some ear plugs could come in handy and please make sure you have the code to get in if you are going to arrive after the reception has shut, 7pm when I was there. I finally received the code at 6.30pm whilst on the Eurostar after making three calls commencing at 9am. I was a bit jittery by the time the code was eventually provided.More

Baked items were a bit hard and not as fresh. There were loads of croissant and pain du chocolates. Service was good. Asked for coffee with milk and she forgot the milk. Got a very small, half filled, cup of black coffee. Strange.

Delightful cup of coffee with a marvelous treat. Friendly staff who also passed on some advices about Brügge visits. Excellent English makes it a tad bit easier as well... 👍🙂

Omg!!! That became our favorite spot for the fresh and super tasty pastry rolls and those little pastries “Merveilleux “. Incredibly fresh and absolutely delicious rolls and pastry. We didn’t try the cakes, but the rolls - we keep coming here every day of our...stay in Paris. We tried many things in different pastry shops, nothing is even close to those rolls. They make them right on spot, and the cakes as well, you see the whole process. Our favorite was the roll with raisins!!!!! My ❤️❤️❤️ The packaging is also very sophisticated and elegant. Liked everything. The service was great too, the salesperson/ baker was super nice and polite. The place is not cheap, but so worth it!!!More

We have visited Brussels two years in a row and went back to this establishment on the second trip early 2020 after such a great experience the first time. Lovely staff and fantastic choices make for a simple but very pleasant experience. If you are...looking for a light snack or even something to take on your onward journey then I highly recommend themMore

Don’t leave Brussels without having a coffee or a tea with their cakes. They are divine. Very good value for money, perfect service and very clean. The same as the previous reviewer, we discovered it on our last day. Worth going to Brussels for that...only.More

Amazing find. This patisserie is incredible. The speciality of the house is fantastic. Lovely environment. Bathroom spotlessly clean. Staff excellent - after someone jumped the queue for seating a staff member quickly sorted the problem out. Very professional and client centred. I will definitely return.

It is a place I really want to enjoy if back to Brussels. We discovered it the very last day at closing time so the only thing we could taste were those divine 'fluffy' balls with nuts all around. Therefore, make sure you visit it...early enough!More

We popped in to this place in the middle of the morning recently. Nice coffee and complimentary meringues and chocolates given to us as well. It"s meringues and bread are highly regarded, with much of it prepared on the premises. The premises have very smart...decor with extremely comfortable soft chairs. The bread, cakes and meringues under the counter looked tasty. Most people were having breakfast.There was a choice of set breakfast menus which included orange juice, coffee/tea and pastry with pastry and cakes. It was a nice place to relax and enjoy a coffee and cake.More
