Top 10 brunches in Brussels

With June in full swing it is only fair to share the top 10 brunches in Brussels. We enjoy discovering new places all the time … so if you have any favourites we’d love to hear about it. Always a good excuse to expand our list of brunch restaurants in Brussels.

Brunch spots to read the press 

Cafe de la Presse 

A trendy and a bit hipsterish cafe on Ave Louise. the perfect start or end of a stroll through Bois de la Cambre. Bagels and carrot cake, Tao drinks and lattes, newspapers and wi-fi. 


JAT is bright, spacious, and sporting a certain vintage look where a cool, press reading mix of people families and friends enjoy lunch. Give their bagels a try. You won’t regret it. 

Brunch spots for healthy food 

Peck 47

Peck 47 is spot on in the middle of town, walking distance from Grand Place. A hint of bright NY cafe meeting the laid back new Brussels style. Great juices and fantastic food. 


Food miles are of big importance for Palmer Colamarino as is healthy, fresh cali-mex food. We loved our brunch at ChezWaWa. Give the Mission Burrito and the homemade aqua fresca a try. You will love it. 

Brunch spots in Saint Gilles 


A quiet corner cafe in Saint Gilles serving a range of great coffees, perfectly balanced sandwiches and some of the best cakes I had in Brussels. 

Le Dillens 

Another corner cafe / beer bar with a great terrace in Saint Gilles serving a very popular weekend brunch (reservations are advised) and having a great selection of bar food and Belgian beers for later in the day. 

Brunch spots for the bobo*

La Fabrique

There are 2 La Fabriques in the city – the original on Place Chatelaine, and  one in Park Egmont. Their brunch is not cheap but it is one of the best selection of savoury and sweets we have tried so far. 


Chyl’s got me conflicted over age and substance … Very trendy and also very instagrammable, the place is always packed so reservations are a must. The brunch offer is decent. The people watching better. 

Brunch spots for the kids 

La Tricoterie

Where Chyl’s caters to the 20+, La Tricoterie is a more laid back 30+ parents-with-crazy-toddlers kind of place. Their brunch is always overbooked. Food is great. Toddlers have a special play area. 

Gelateria Il Monello 

When the heat hits all we crave for is Italian gelato – and Il Monello does that perfectly. It’s very Italian, serving delicious homemade food. And ice cream. Lots & lots of ice cream. Bonus points – a kids corner. 

*bobo is a word coined by David Brooks, merging bourgeois and bohemian to classify the post-yuppies of the 80s.
