I want to move to Brussels just so I can have one piece of chocolate from Frederic Blondeel every day. Once you taste his chocolates, nothing else will ever compare. This place is a hidden gem.

This has been a great chocolate shop. Since new owner took over, it has nothing to do with the quality from before. Hot chocolate tastes like water with sugar, worse then any machine made drink. Before your spoon would almost stand in your chocolate. Total...More

Quite simply the best ice cream I’ve ever eaten. It’s not cheap. But then ecstasy seldom comes free.
