This Cafe was recommended by the guide book for having the best waffles in town. A great little place, slightly worn but with all the charm. Their waffles were certainly good, plus we had eggs on toast too, which were equally as goo. Go and find them in St. Hubert's Gallery.

We visited on New Year's day, it was very very busy but we got a table. The service was fast considering and the waiter was very polite - i think i would have been losing my mind had i been working there! We had coffee and waffles and both were lovely and reasonably priced too.

Located in the famous gallery, this was an ideal spot to stop for tea and cake. Plenty of pastries, cakes and waffles to choose from. Friendly service. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Went here for breakfast. Atmosphere is quite loud. Waiter failed to understand when I asked for a café au lait and ordered by addressed him in french (as I'm fluent), and he kept coming back to english or spanish (for some reason). I'm sure he was trying to be helpful, but it wasn't, it was confusing, especially early in the... More

My other half and I visited Mokafe and had a good simple lunch. This is a local spot for anyone in shopping in Brussels centre and it is used for a quick beer, lunch and seems to attract a lot of customers day and night. Services is good and a wide ranging menu is available with something for everyone. Not... More

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!
