The area is buzzing with activities, which is proved by the new places that open everyday. Let us welcome you to the first of these places: Café Capitale. Opened at the end of March, this cozy place not only offers you a great breakfast list made up of granola, bagels and a wide array of cakes (all rigorously homemade), but also a small shop selling all you may need related to coffee. Enjoy a delicious espresso with beans freshly roasted in the backroom in one of the comfy armchairs, while listening to the hypnotizing vinyl selection or reading a book.
Opening Hours: Wed – Sun: 8:30 am – 6pm

Belge une fois is an eclectic concept store tucked away on the rue Haute midpoint which, as a common fil rouge, displays the best Bruxellois design has to offer. Born from a bold idea conceived by two Bruxellois, Arthur et Natacha back in 2015, this shop has it all. From a vintage corner with furniture to carefully selected jewelry and designers, what is not to be missed is a Belgian specialty par excellence: the gaufre. In the spacious backroom evocatively named ‘Chill & Food’ you can try this snack cooked in a variety of ways, from salty to sugary.
Opening Hours: Wed- Sun: 11am-6pm
