Sadly, I am told they have closed

Apparently both the store and factory tour have closed. It is really too bad, because they were the best pralines in Brussels and the factory tour was amazing.

Manon is the pinnacle of a belgian chocolate factory tour. There's no gimmicks. He is a third generation chocolatier and his factory is inocuous in a side street. Manon gives the tour himself, taking you from cocoa bean all the way to five filling pralines - all done live in front of your eyes, with tasting along the way at... More

Manon took us through the process of creating pralines from start to finish - who knew that chocolate could be as interesting as it is delicious! And the chocolates here were just the best!. This demonstration (90 minutes) was a highlight of our trip to Brussels

At first we were a little confused because the owner replied back in a random email address (random domain name and email), just to manage your expectations.

The activity above refers to the high street shop the maître chocolatier have in Brussels. However, I've been given the privilege to join him in the factory where he gave me plenty of explanation of how chocolate is made and show me how to make chocolates and get the cacao mixture blended and ready to work. An incredible experience that... More

These are simply the best traditional pralines in Brussels. They are completely hand-made and feature may interesting combinations. I especially like the fresh cream ones. My Belgian uncle has for over 30 years sworn that these are the best in Belgium and I agree. We make a trip here every time we visit. Note that at a different location, they... More
