    This is such a "place to be" in Brussels. Great parties, great chill vibes, cool crowd. Probably more famous than Manneken Pis these days. Especially amazing on sunny days with the outdoor seating!

    Go there Sunday morning for a brunch and get the best cheese cake in the city. It almost melts in your mouth!!! Bare in mind that they run out of it quickly, so be there early. ;)

    A great place to go during the day or at night for a cafe or beer. For Flagey, it's one of "the" bars to go to. The baristas are usually quite busy, but still nice. Good selection of beer and drinks.

    During winter it's just another "cold" and big, typical Belgian bar but when the weather is nice I really like to enjoy a beer in a chaise long, with the lake of Flagey just a few meters away from me!

    try a 'white flower': biere blanche with elderflower syrup. If you're lucky, you get fresh strawberries and apple in it. Delicious sumer drink!

    A Brussels institution! Its unpretentious coolness and laid back atmosphere makes it the ideal place for after work drinks or lazy Sundays. Try the fresh mint tea. Read more

    Nice place for whatever you want to do: brunch, coffee, after dinner, Sunday morning with family or Saturday party with friends. Good music, cool atmosphere, awesome waiters.

    Super nice neighbourhood cafe with loads of beer choices. Always tables available inside and outside on the terrace, and long sun hours! Recommend!

    An institution in Brussels. If you only have time for 1 bar in Brussels, this is the one. Look no further. Also, great place for a brunch & apero.

    Sometimes hard to find a place but if you're lucky you'll get a nice place to work or to hang out with friends. Both options are totally possible in Belga.

    You can order a cappucino and read your book. A good friend for the animals also. (Outside of the Cafe, there are tables for smokers.)

    One of those great Belgian cafés by Frédéric Nicolay. Good location, nice terrace that’s often full, great home-made ice tea.

    On Friday great for a party, in Summer great for the terras, and make sure to catch one of the live bands!

    Good but certainly not for everyone: loud, usually packed, bad service and relatively meagre beer selection (check out L'Amère à boire around the corner). The terrace is admittedly nice.

    Sometimes a weak Wifi cnx. But it has lots of table even if it might be full for lunch. With its large windows it's very bright even in Winter with nice view to ponds.

    Best place in the neighbourhood for a coffee, drink, lunch or a late night beer. The most sunny terrace in Brussels!

    Very trendy and definitely the place to be at Flagey! It is quite chill during the day and gets crowded at night.

    Best place in the neighbourhood for a summer evening apero annex people watching, except if you like it quiet.

    Trendiest place in the area. Great location next to the Étangs d’Ixelles. There’s a large terrace that is always full of people.

    Great for beer, and surprisingly good coffee (loved their cappuccino). Not a great food selection though.

    A classic all seasons, night and day, to experience Brussels life outside the touristic centre.

    Food is awesome. Wireless is really flaky. But you can get neighbouring wifi if you sit in strategic locations.

    If you are in Flagey, this is the pub to visit most definitely. Having beer with the view of the lake!

    Packed, even on week nights, but it's part of the charm. Try the homemade ice tea, for a change.

    Be careful when parking in the streets behind the church. Although there is police station, some as***** break you window and steal the belongings from your car.

    Grab a beer and head outside. We saw baby's dancing to some music; they were good but their choreography was off.

    I think is quite overrated. Too crowded, sometimes the service is really not good and they don't have good beer options(for a belgian bar). But I can't judge the food, as I never ate there.

    Their soups are delicious! The carrot soup is definitely worth a try!
