A valeur sûre for a couple of years

Many vegan options - in fact very little non vegan options.
I especially recommend this place if you want to try cool Belgian craft beer.
Note that it gets packed on weekends (...good for them)

Just choose somewhere else

Awful service. We ordered a sandwich and soup each, and one ordered without the 'bacon'. We pointed it out and they said they'd run out. Seems like they just hoped we wouldn't notice as we had to ask for it to be taken off the bill (the 'bacon' was an extra). They didn't offer us any alternative and they didn't apologise or anything, and made us feel rude for pointing it out. There was quite a lot of broken glass on the floor and on the bar and the manager just kind of kicked it to the side. The food and drinks were very expensive and small portion sizes. Service was very slow staff were always rude. The kitchen is right next to the toilet. Lesson learned, we should have paid attention to the other reviews.

Cons: Rude staff, Unhygienic , Very overpriced

Expensive but a nice breakfast

€30 for a mozarella focaccia breakfast and a vegan healthy breakfast.

The mozarella in the focaccia just tasted a bit bland, but the rest was really delicious and it came with soup.

The fried eggs were really cool but the whites taste of nothing (which is impossible to change wherever you go really). Yolk was delicious though and I enjoyed the mushrooms and avocado.

It’s quite a small portion, but filling. Nice if you want to treat yourself in a city lacking in vegetarian/vegan options.

Ok food

I went there super excited since it was recommended by a fellow vegan. The experience was… underwhelming. The staff wasn’t very friendly, the food was bland and the beetroot was the worst beetroot i’ve ever had. And the avocado was not ripe at all. The waffles were weird and tasteless. The soup and the bread were actually good. And they do have a great selection of beer!

Gentilezza e gusto

Ho provato ginger falafel di lenticchie, accompagnati da una zuppa di verdure e waffle con sciroppo d'agave: tutto gustoso, porzioni giuste, prezzo negli standard di Bruxelles. Il personale molto gentile, veramente consigliato poiché è anche centralissimo. Locale gluten free con opzioni vegan.

Pros: Qualità , Gentilezza, Gusto

The waffles were ok

Cute Restaurant, the staff was ok.

The waffles (14€) are expensive for what you get. They aren't crispy and don't have a lot of flavor themselves.

Their smoothies are more like slushies and are frozen through.

Delicious vegan waffles

I really like the vegan and gluten free waffles here! They have a lot of options, sweet and savory, and the waffles taste really good. Definitely a must try if you even visit Brussels and you crave a vegan waffle! Price is a bit expensive though!

Good food but limited options

Found this place since it was so close to the square. I ordered the vegetable soups which was VERY good and my husband ordered a bowl which he said was ok but not seasoned well. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed because I had really wanted one of the sandwiches from their menu and they said they ran out of bread. Regardless, the soup was excellent and the location was amazing!

Good but expensive waffle

I tried the vegan savoury waffle. It was very delicious but quite expensive for its size (16 €). It’s on the tourist area so what can you expect.

for the waffle experience!

i looove a chickpea flour–based item and the vegan/gf waffles delivered. we got a sweet and a savory one. the vegan mozz was delicious; vegan bacon was not as much my thing (maybe they were seitan shreds?), sun-dried tomatoes and veggies were so fresh! you can sit outside on a pleasant shady side street, which was amazing on a hot day. various milk options including soy. didn't try the juice but looked so delicious!

Pros: variety, outdoor seating, sweet staff

Great location, amazing food and waste free!

Awesome restaurant, if in Brussels I’d recommend. The location is beautiful, situated near the Grand Place, with lovely outdoor seating. Lots of vegan options. I tried the “Vegan History” waffle with vegan bacon, vegan mozzarella, and avocado. Very tasty!

Great sandwich+ place with many vegan choices

A very cute and environmentally conscious cafe near the Grand Place.

We had the Ready to Move (see two photos), the Brother, and the Genius (which is vegetarian). Served on Foccacia bread with a cup of delicious vegan soup (carrot, onion and potato). See the menu photos for details.

All three in my party said they want to come back again.

Good enough

First of all, there are loads of vegan option, clearly labeled, and the location is perfect (next to the grand place).
That’s a very cute restaurant.
I find it a bit expensive but I guess the location plays a part in that
