Just popped in for a quick look but of course ended up with a cake. Staff were really friendly and their selection of nut butters is lovely too. Got a matcha pound cake which I can highly recommend - the cream is soo light with a nutty flavour.

Size does matter

I love buddy buddy, i often come by and recommend it to all my friends.
My only critique is that it’s a bit small so it gets easily crowded😒
I avoid coming on weekends

Pros: taste amazing , nice toilets, nice portions

Cons: not enough space :(

Best breakfast ever

This place was great! We had the chocolate donut and the Matcha Latte and the "standard" Buddy Latte. Can't recommend it enough. Staff was friendly, food was great, prices were fair for higher-end specialty coffee and pastries. Only reason I wouldn't go here would be a nut allergy. Otherwise it's a must for everyone!

Very good coffee, lgbt friendly

The cappuccino was amazing as well as the cinnamon roll and the other sweet pastry we had. 4 stars only because the tables are close to each other and when there is a lot of people, there isn't much space.

Pros: Great coffe, Nice staff

Big variety of options

I don’t generally drink coffee due to having very childish tastebuds. I was a big fan of their peanut buttery/chocolatey drinks, while my partner - a proper grownup coffee person - enjoyed their more sophisticated options.

Also, the chocolate peanut butter cup is banging

Take the pain au chocolat

Amazing the drinks (I took a chai latte that was incredible) and the pain au chocolat is filled with a nut cream that is something special!

Fantastic Coffee - Tasty Pastries

Best coffee I’ve had in Brussels. I had the praline mocha and it was delicious and creamy. Also had a couple of pastries which were tasty. Highly recommend for a quick, sweet breakfast. Staff speaks many languages (English, French, Dutch (Belgium), Dutch (Netherlands), Italian, etc and their nameplates show which languages each person speaks.

Not for breakfast

I went to this restaurant because it's on the breakfast list of Happy Cow. In some of the reviews I saw that they had croissants and pain au chocolate. However, at the restaurant they told me the only food they had were sweet pasteries. In my opinion they were way too sweet for breakfast. I could imagine coming back for an afternoon tea accompanied by a pastry but for breakfast I would definitely go to another place next time

Very cool cafe!

Buddy Buddy is a vegan nut butter shop/producer as well as a vegan cafe! They serve all sorts of original coffees with their nut butters! The drink menu is very unique, and they also have more normal coffees and drinks. They also serve a bunch of different vegan pastries! Overall it’s a very cool place and worth coming to!

10/10 pastries 🥐

Amazing coffee and pastries. The baristas make every coffee with so much love and attention to detail, you can really taste the difference. The pastries are insanely delicious - flaky, yet soft and creamy. Would 100% come back here!!
Toilet available.

Pros: Everything is plant based , Delicious!!!!, Worth the visit

Insane pain au chocolat

Small Cafe. Limited seating . Iced coffee is exceptional and the espresso was well prepared. The matcha cake is delightful, not too sweet. The pain au chocolat tastes so much better than it looks. Unfortunately the two following days days I was there,they didn’t have a savory pastry. Bummer I forgot to try a nut butter latte, they look phenomenal

Pros: All vegan , Carefully curated baked goods, We’ll designed interior

Cons: Not a lot of savory treats, Pricey, Limited seating

Definitely worth visiting

Coffee and cakes. Let Buddy signature coffee has peanut butter and is delicious. The cake and the pastry I had were both delicious and high quality. Just under €15 for coffee and two cakes - seems reasonable for Brussels.

Delicious coffee and pastries

We came here to try the famous pain au chocolat. Unfortunately it was sold out. We had a cookie and a cinnamon roll/croissant thingy instead. They were really good. We also had coffee with nut butter which I had never had before. It was so tasty, highly recommend!

Pros: Fully vegan, Very tasty

Cons: Quite expensive

Vegan pastries to die for

They offer a selection of all vegan pastries that changed regularly. They also have many special drinks such a praline mocha and much more but also regular specialty coffee ☕️
The Kouign-Amann was so flaky and rich, topped with their homemade almond butter!

Pros: All vegan , Lots of options

Lovely afternoon

What a lovely place to enjoy a cup of delicious coffee and cakes.
I was very impressed by the quality of pastries, really very very good.
The only note, i am not sure there are options for people allergic to nuts, i will ask next time

Cute concept

Very cute & cosy interior. A nut butter café, they are fully plant based and sell their own organic nut butters, which are delicious. I love the cinnamon roll one.
