“An Ixelles classic, this is a popular spot for locals and is known for being a trendy place with an amazing and vast terrace. At Belga (as it’s known), you will find the right atmosphere for all your needs: a space to work or a place to host an evening with friends. Good music and top-quality service create an atmosphere where everybody wants to go, whether it be morning, noon or night.”

Officially one of the world's top 100 cafés - no less - it is also a haven of timelessness, with its unusual, characterful décor.”
