One of the prettiest places in Brussels. Very elegant, overpriced, snobby but who's paying? There is a well-known café/pastry shop named Wittamer here, but it is mostly snobby and not really very special, IMHO.

We are visiting this place when we do a tourist guided visit of Brussels. This is a place where you can find much famous chocolatiers. And also an antique market.

Where the Belgians strut their stuff... about the last place left in the centre where they still do. Wittamer the patissier remains unjustifiably snobby and expensive, Costermans the antiquaire retains its glorious (and for most of us inaccessible) display of the finest antiques, au Vieux...More

This was a favourite haut on previous visits and it's still beautiful - but it's in decline. There are still some unique shops, but more for browsing, than buying. It needs a boost, but not by allowing mass market 'stack it high, sell it cheap'...More
