The waffle itself was really soft which I really liked. The biscuits were very crunchy. However, the caramel syrup was a little much and made the entire thing overly sweet. I was still really glad I got to try it though!

This is an excellent hidden gem! I had a beautiful crepe with nutella and strawberries! It looks rough on the outside, and the chairs are broken... But oh my gosh the food! If you are an investor, you should definitely invest in this cafe! We were served by a young woman with long dark hair who was brilliant! A must... More

We immensely enjoyed our "time" at this place. In my imagination I can still savor the taste of the excellent coffee and remember how much we enjoyed the kind folks who served us. The gelato/ice-cream and waffles were delicious! The location is just down the street from the cathedral and a short walk from the grand place. We will return!

We had sandwiches, omelette, and waffle for lunch. Everything was excellent. The sandwich came with a crisp salad. They have an extensive menu with a lot of selections.

Try this restaurant when we saw some people sitting outside and enjoy their waffles. We ordered waffles, coffee and hot chocolate.. Reasonable price and good location with beautiful view of the cathedral. Really enjoy it very much.

We got in Brussels late in the evening, and Ijsberg was one of the few open places around. We ordered a pizza, but the owner told us that he was closing already, but could make the pizza as long as we would take way. The pizza was good, nevertheless, and we didn't wait much. For that I'll say that it's... More

Went here for a late breakfast and opted for the waffles which were very nice. Returned a few days later as we knew we could rely on getting nice waffles. Friendly staff and average pricing. 3 stars as its a nice place but nothing special.

located in the city center, but still in a location where you can park (cathedral), a very good suggestion to have breakfast: cappuccino, waffles, ice cream, freshly pressed orange juice ! Not premium hall, and music is rather noisy. But our contact with the waitress managed to be charming after we smiled at her and we decided to return there... More

Instead of serving us, the waitress chose to clean all tables first and serve the couple that arrived after us. The sandwich bread was a day old. We won't go back there :-)

I had breakfast there - waffles with ice-cream. So good I went back again the next day! Lots of flavours of ice-cream. Menu is in several languages.
