Someone asked me a while ago in an interview if the focus of our blog would change now that we have become parents. Convinced it would not interfere what-so-ever with our ‘blog’ life, I said a very convinced ‘no’. Ha! Here we are now experts in child friendly brunch places in Brussels. Enter La Tricoterie.
While we might not be able to book as many dinners out as before, we have however become experts at brunching. An important factor in that is our over-active, over-early toddler. Boy do our days have a lot more hours in them … Which means that lunch out with a toddler is way easier to organize than eating in a restaurant, usually bast bed time.
Looking for a child friendly brunch restaurant in Brussels, we came across La Tricoterie. Housed in an old pasta factory, which then become a furniture factory, the brunch space is huge! Which is why toddlers (and their parents!) love it. On Sundays a special ‘Mini Tricoteurs’ area is set up, filled with toys, building blocks, train tracks, books … you name. And while the children play, parents can enjoy brunch. The brunch is a combination of sweet and savoury, with all products (bio or fair trade) sourced as much as possible locally. We tried the La Tricoterie brunch several times and whilst consistency is not something they can take credit for, the food was always tasty.
The restaurant is always packed over the weekend, so reservations are a must (as ‘locals’ we thought … pfff … we’ll just walk in, surely they will have a table for 2 1/2 … well, we also walked out pretty quick!). On top of brunch, La Tricoterie is a beating hub in Saint Gilles also offering conversation evenings, meet-up restaurant evening, lindy-hop charleston, yoga, and end of June 2017 also the Groovalicious music festival. Their motto is to be a “Link Factory”: a meeting place where various disciplines and audiences meet, in a spirit of exchange and emulation.
A bit artsy Saint Gilles? You bet! A relaxed and pleasant place to spend a Sunday? Very much so!
