Absolutely the best bakery that we found. The selection is varied enough to be a small breakfast to an elaborate dessert for dinner. All is made on site, literally in front of you in a large window. GO HERE

This is a small corner bakery always making fresh breads and pastries. While you're walking about, definitely DEFINITELY stop in and buy something you won't be disappointed. Everything in here is super fresh, super tasty, and much more flavorful and pure than the touristy waffles...More

Worth it and excellent despite the long wait. It’s the only place in Brussels where you can buy such great chocolate buns or raisin buns. It’s typically French and it is mouthwatering

It's freshy made chocolate buns and very nice stuff, but very limited choice and the desserts are nothing special. There are many other places more worth of visiting.

Food was just amazing - I had hot chocolate as well which was the best. Staff was little rude especially with tourists who really don't understand all the products that they serve.

How dare they have the doors open just to reel me in like a moth to a flame! 🔥 I didn’t stand a chance against the smell of freshly baked bread. I felt like the cartoon with aroma pulling my nose into the door. 🤦🏾‍♀️...More
