A massive help in meaty Brussels - Edit

This chain was a bit of a life-saver in Brussels, where they delight in all things meaty (even the fries are done using beef fat!!). Some of the food was only okay, but they offer oat milk if you ask, and everything is clearly labelled. There are usually quite a few vegan lunch options although all the cakes and pastries I saw were not vegan.

Pros: convenient , clearly labeled, oat milk

Cons: expensive for what you get

Gabriel sandwich - Edit

Pretty much the only thing I would buy here is a sandwich to go. It is so amazing and tasty, made of lentils and funnel seeds pate. I love the combination and if you get there after 5pm you get it with a discount.
Other things I tried are soups with coconut milk and veggie soups. They were also good.
A few salads I tried are also fine, but a bit expensive if you are hungry for a meal.

Pros: tasty, pleasant atmosphere, multiple locations

Cons: can be expensive

Just ok - Edit

I went there for lunch and had just two vegan options to choose from. The third was not available. The taste was ok, but nothing special. I'd to heat up my meal by myself in the microwave … for the whole experience the price was quite expensive :/

Pros: Vegan options available

Cons: Crowdy and loud

some vegan options - Edit

Exki used to be terrible for vegans but nowadays its getting much better. It is still more a green-ish fast food than a restaurant, though. This one is really crowded on lunch time.

Pros: vegan things, convenient location

Cons: noisy

Too pricy for what it's worth - Edit

If you read the ingredients clearly there is even sugar in the salad. There is almost nothing for vegans. I think the concept is beautiful, but healthy food is misused to ask too much money for a small dish.

Pros: nice light place

Cons: nothing for vegans, sugar in salads

Pretty good - Edit

I used to eat there quite frequently before going vegan. It is a great place to grab a coffee and a snack or a piece of cake ( for non veg), there are few options for vegetarian and i've only come across one dish for vegans which was the tofu-carrot salad and also fruits but nothing else really a part from the drinks.
For a parent dependent person it is quite pricy considering that nearby you can get vegan fries ( either Mcdonalds or quick) for cheap. But Ekxi is better if you care about your health/weight.
The staff does change but they all are friendly.
One thing that does annoy me is that you have to pay extra if you want to eat inside.

Pros: good fruits, wi-fi

Cons: not enough vegan options

Good for vegetarians, not for vegans. - Edit

This is a large café/bio-store, which is self service and has microwaves so customers can heat up wraps etc. But whilst the bright, comfortable, large seating area is welcoming, and the staff are friendly, the focus is on organic and sustainably-sourced ingredients, not on vegetarian or veganism. All vegetarian items are marked bz a green square, and luckily all products have a list of ingredients in French, Flemish and English, so that vegans and those with allergies can check what they can eat. During my visit, which was at 10 in the morning, I found nothing vegan except a few overpriced small pre-packaged salads and some dark chocolate bars – perhaps lunchtime is better because the other Exki in Brussels has at least one vegan main option. Vegetarians can choose from salads, wraps and a large selection of cakes and pastries. Oh and one sneaky tip – wifi is free for 30 minutes, but you can just disconnect and reconnect if you want to stay longer.

Pros: location, friendly staff, clear labelling

Cons: almost nothing for vegans
