“Impeccable and Quintessential”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

My son and I stumbled upon the Maison Renardy while waiting for the nearby U.S. Embassy to replace a passport stolen on the train from Antwerp to Bruges - a common occurrence, according to everyone we met. The cafe was perfect. The coffee was hot and delicious, the almond croissants exquisite, the ambiance cheerful, the facilities comfortable and clean. All in all, a loveluy respite in a bland neighborhood.

“Best hot chocolate ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

I chose the 73% cocoa chocolate and then had a coffee afterwards. It was less than 5 euros and both hot drinks came with a praline (piece of Belgian chocolate). It is 100 years old and has a lovely feel. It is quite close to The Matonge area in Brussels.

Among the finest chocolates in Belgium. Fresh and delicious.
