In this restaurant located in a very central place of the town you can enjoy a very good selection of pies salty and sweet, for what concerns the rest of the proposal maybe it is not the best you can find in town. Go there if you want to have a good coffee to be accompanied with a satisfying dessert

While touring Brussels I worked up an appetite, so I stopped into a busy restaurant. I figured it was busy it must be good?! The owner was a take charge kind of women working the cash register and helping out here and there. The English menu wasn't very English? My server did not speak English so I flagged the women...

Visited this restaurant with my family for breakfast during our weekend stay in Brussels and it fit the bill. It was a short walk from hotel and provided us with lots of options. I opted for 2 scrambled eggs with coffee and free oranges. The eggs, while simple, were very well seasoned. The meal was a good value at 9,50... More

price/quality is reall good. Tables are really close to each other so not the perfect restaurant for a date, but if you don't want to pay a lot of money and have a good meal, I can recommend this restaurant. Don't forget the ask for the Boudins

Good recommendations for beer and food. The servers are friendly and quick - they don't rush you but they are responsive if you are wanting to get in and out like me. (This is uncommon in Europe where slow service, letting you sit there for hours, is considered good service.) The raspberry meringue pie was so good, I just about... More

Our first breakfast we tried their tartes legumes (quiches) of salmon & broccoli and lorraine (ham & cheese) and both were excellent. We also tried their cappuccinos with Chantilly cream. The lady who served us was also very nice and pleasant. The second time we brought our French friends and they also liked it a lot too. That time we... More

Brussels was the bookends of our trip to Belgium and Paris. We lucked out that Arcadi was just around the corner from our hotel, Dominican, and ate here on our first day and every day we were in Brussels. We ventured out to other eateries, but this was our base when we didn't want to risk a bad meal somewhere... More

For a coffee, for tea, for lunch or for dinner, if you are in the neighbourhood, dont miss stoping at the Arcadi café. Great Mint tea , great desserts (fresh pastries ) and large selection of salads and quiches. Really one of my favorite in Brussels .
