    Avoid at all costs. Irresponsible service, waiting time can ruin your WE morning. Crowded, noisy and dirty; it's a shame since this place was a good brunch option 5 years ago.

    it can be crowded, no airco so it can be stuffy. coffee is good, cakes are very good.

    Nice place to hangout and go for brunch. Sadly the coffee isn't great, I think they use UHT milk like most places in Brussels so makes the coffee taste weird.

    Coffee is not that great, the place is nice but a bit dirty, also the WiFi is very slow and gets slower with each client walking in

    Worst coffee of my life. In order to make their bad "late art", they serve you a half a liter late... One measure coffee, 3*milk.
  • Stephan B.
    Stephan BralMarch 25, 2014
    It has a "New York-ish" atmosphere, and doesn't cease to be packed & popular. The coffee - however - is of below-par quality, and the food is just OK. Try it at least once & judge for yourself.
