    Mussels with chorizo sausage is overkill. Just writing that makes me wonder why I thought it would be a good thing to order in the first place. Also, it is said to include truffles, which it doesn't.

    I doubt you could go wrong with any brunch option here, but I'd recommend the MAIS WAFELS: Cornbread waffle, pulled pork, avocado, fried egg, crème fraîche

    You'll do fine ordering any waffle, but for something different, try the ham and cheese quiche with mixed greens. Yum. Service is attentive, but slow. Have a second mimosa or cappuccino and relax.

    The Spicy B&B Bloody Mary is surprisingly good! So was the lobster omlet and seasoned potato fingers. I'm now a big fan of Belgian breakfast!

    Kid-friendly early in the evening (5-6pm). Waffles are mostly on lunch/brunch menu but not dinner. For dinner, try any of the many muscle preparations. And Belgian Beers!

    the waffles aren't even the best part (although they're pretty good) - the hot chocolate with bailey's is phenomenal, and the bucket of bacon was so delicious and crunchy.

    Always a solid option on Barracks Row, Belga Cafe serves global "Eurofusion" cuisine (mostly Belgian) with a neighborly touch. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    One of the best Belgian restaurants in the city. You may hear celestial trumpets as you take a bite out of their steak frites paired with the perfect beer.

    Belga serves perfectly fine Belgian cuisine, and has at all times at least five fine Belgian beers on tap (and a host more besides). Reliable food, best for dinner.

    Savory ratatouille quinoa waffles were amazing! I'd also recommend the sea bass—very light. Restaurant Week service left a lot to be desired though.

    This place is great. Get the beermosa and the short ribs with polenta and poached eggs. Also, the fries are insane!

    Try the The "B"Anini - Best Panini E-V-E-R!!! Creamed spinach, chorizo, gruyère cheese, roasted garlic.

    The beef stew is phenomenal! Leffe beer in the ju. The slaw that comes with it has slices of apple in it.

    Beautiful food - and it's so tasty, too! Bloody Mary is great - love the celery foam on top.

    the steak was excellent. the mussels is okay but not the best: it was sandy. the service is fine. take note that they automatically add 20% tip on your total bill.

    Serves Green Eggs And Ham, totally legit! Not for kids either; it's great if you like pesto, spinach, & bacon.

    The good: the B&BS burger is outstanding. The bad: the ballads channel in the background can drive you to insanity.

    Definitely make reservations on OpenTable if you plan on stopping by for brunch- it is packed but extremely efficient service.

    It might feel wrong to order French toast at a waffle place... But it's truly amazing.

    Even with a reservation you won't be seated on time. (Or twenty mins after your reservation.) You've been warned.

    Get the hot chocolate, it's made by melting belgian chocilate into hot milk. It will be the best you've ever had!

    The happy hour portions are really small. The "wings" translates to one wing for $4.

    The mussels and Belgian beers are very good at Belga, but I'm still partial to Granville Moore's.
