One of those fantastic old fashioned Cafe/Restaurants. Still a witness of exuberant Old World opulence. Recommended if you're in a nostalgic mood or just want to escape modern times for a while.

After walking all over town stopped by to have tea and small bite to eat. The ambiance was wonderful. Beautiful place, quiet and great food. Ended up having meals and enjoyed our stop at Cafe Metropole. Highly recommend stopping by while visiting Brussels.

Although at times (I ate there twice), the service can be a little slow (there was only one waiter and it was busy), the service was still good. The food we had there was really good (excellent soup, club sandwhich, bagel, waterzooi...) what struck me...More

Description
Situé sur la trépidante Place de Brouckère, le Café Métropole vous propose une cuisine de type brasserie haut de gamme dans la tradition bruxelloise. La carte du Café renoue avec l’histoire de la création de cet établissement par la famille de brasseurs Wielemans-Ceuppens en 1890. On peut y découvrir une sélection exigeante de bières artisanales belges, venir prendre le thé et y déguster une cuisine subtile et raffinée. Cette brasserie de luxe accueille ses clients dans un cadre Art Nouveau où les décors d’époques ont été conservés ; l’intérieur et l’extérieur du bâtiment étant classés. Les clients peuvent ainsi choisir, entre se poser dans le cadre intime et somptueux de l’intérieur du café ou prendre le pouls de la ville, été comme hiver, en s’attablant à la terrasse chauffée. Le Café Métropole propose 80 places à l’intérieur et 150 à l’extérieur, réparties en deux terrasses distinctes durant l’été. Un soin particulier est employé à l’accueil et au service de la clientèle tout comme à la qualité des produits proposés, et ceci dans le souci légitime de ne pas faillir à la tradition d’excellence de l’Hôtel auquel le Café appartient. Cette circulation des savoir-faire traditionnels et d’excellence entre l’intérieur de l’Hôtel et l’extérieur, son Café, contribue à favoriser les échanges dans ce lieu mythique où les bruxellois croisent depuis toujours des grands noms du cinéma, de la science, de la presse ou de la politique. Au cœur de Bruxelles, le Café Métropole est l’endroit idéal pour rencontrer des clients, faire une pause shopping, ou se retrouver, tout simplement.
