I tried lots of food outlets whilst recently visiting Brussels. Some of them cheap and cheerful, some simply street vending outlets, and others, rather more grand and exclusive. This restaurant was probably the best. It is well located, situated as it is, in The Royal Arcade, a very prestigious setting. It looks attractive from the outside and has a delightful... More

For a good inexpensive meal of Belgian specialities, try lunch or dinner here. Service was very good, plates were huge and the house wine very affordable and very drinkable.

First I was disappointed, as the place is noisy and not really well heated. But the waffles with choclate and the tea made all up for that. It was just delicious!

We tried a couple of place around town including the Mason dandoy but this was the best so far. Brilliant

The waffles lived up to the hype. Absolutely delicious. Scrambled eggs & Canadian bacon weren't bad either, but the waffles were so good!

I ate a light dinner here one night while in Brussels--prosciutto with some berries and salad. The dish was attractively arranged, and the ingredients were fresh and tasty. With a glass of wine, the tab came to 19 euros including a small tip. The decor is simple, cafe-style, but comfortable. You are not rushed out, but you can sit and... More

There are very few places you can get an American-esque breakfast in Europe and Mokafe does it wonderfully! The eggs, bacon, and toast was great. Super clean bathrooms which is a big plus with young kids. Fantastic!

Pinterest listed Mokafe as one of the top waffle places in belgium and it was rightfully so. The waffles were amazing and so were the bacon toast and eggs. The service was just as great as well. Would definately eat here again.

Forget the cheapo 1 Euro waffle places dotted around this city. There is only one place to go for melt in the mouth waffles. I had the cherry one, it was to die for. Wonderfully light in texture, with warm fruit on top. We found service good, as are the prices for the food and location. The lattes were also... More

Nice location for people-watching but other than that I cannot recommend it. The service was slow and unfriendly and the tables were not very clean. It was clearly a busy time, but even so but I would have expected better.
