Some nice vegan options

The gardener's croque and avocado toast are vegan and really nice. They have a nice vegan hibiscus croissant as well, and some vegan deserts f ex a tasty vegan chocolate cake. Breakfast is possible, f ex if you pick a fruit salad with a hibiscus croissant and bread with jam.

Pros: Nice vegan options , Love the atmosphere and interior

Cons: You can't reserve table, Very busy around noon

Hibiscus Trash

We only tried the Hibiscus Croissant and tbh it wasn't that great and kind of trashy. The croissant was covered with "Hibiscus" what actually was a pink sugar coating.

The ambiente looked very fine though but you are only allowed to sit down when ordering from the menu (which is more expensive).

Lekker maar heel druk

Lekkere vegan opties. Redelijk duur. Heerlijke coffee en drankjes. Wel vaak heel druk en de tafeltjes zijn erg klein. Gezellige sfeer en mooie decoratie.

Pros: Lekker , Veel lekkere drankjes (warm en koud) , Mooie locatie

Cons: Duur , Druk

Very good

Has a few vegan options and they are very tasty. They brought us butter with the bread although all us ordered vegan :(. We told them and they replaced it with olive oil.

Good vegan brunch

This is a nice location, part of a chain of restaurants in Belgium and they all have the proposal of vegan dishes based on salad, bread, toast...

They include things like quinoa, chickpeas, avocado, zucchini...so it's definitely very tasty.

For the desserts it changes apparently from location to location.

They clearly pay attention to vegan and are proposing more and more vegan suggestions, like even a special vegan breakfast.

Good experience.

Pros: Good vegan proposal, Nice place, Friendly staff

Cons: Removing meat and fish just a dream?

Good vegan options!

We visited different Le Pain Quotidien restaurants when on holiday in Belgium. They are always in very central touristic places and offer some great vegan options. For coffee/tea time, I really loved the “Chocolate Delice” cake, but didn’t like the berry muffin too much (too dry). For breakfast, the avocado toast is good, granola is good but a small portion, or you could just have bread (e.g. cranberry and nuts flute) with sweet spreads/jam (the “Noir” chocolate spread is sooo good – the spreads are on the tables but there are different ones. If you don’t find this on your table, it is worth checking out the spreads on other tables or asking for it). I was with a non-vegan friend and sharing the “Le Pain Quotidien” breakfast (where she ate the non-vegan Pain au chocolat and I ordered an additional soy cappuccino) was great value - you could probably replace the Pain au chocolate with more baguette/bread . For lunch/dinner they also have salads/soups/bowls and dishes like that. Although Le Pain Quotidien is a chain restaurant, there’s a good and cosy atmosphere.

goed gegeten

Ik en mijn vriend konden hier goed eten, hij als vleeseter zijnde en ik veganist. Allebei zitten smullen. Goede service, het eten was er snel en het ziet er leuk uit. Je kunt buiten ook lekker zitten. Wel wat prijzig. Alles biologisch en ook koffie met plantaardige melk.

Pros: veel veganistische opties en het staat er duidelij, goede service, tentje ziet er leuk uit

Cons: prijzig (een aantal gerechten, je hebt ook keuze u

I came here for lunch. We were seated and then ignored. Finally a waiter came up to us with a menu but told us it would take at least 50 minutes to be served because it was so busy.

We left because we didn't want to wait so long. I did see a few vegan options and coffee with plantbased milk but obviously I didn't taste them.

Cons: Long waiting
