Brussels‘ brunch and breakfast scene has been growing exponentially over the past years, as the city is undergoing an overall make-over which cannot pass unnoticed. The neighborhood of Matongé has blossomed as it now offers all sorts of dining options for lazy weekends. Here are the best spots to indulge in a top-notch breakfast in Matongé, Brussels.


Although it has been serving customized frozen yogurts and fresh juices for some time, Mellow is slowly but steadily broadening its offer. Beyond the frozen yogurt topped with fresh seasonal fruits, chipped biscuits, nuts and syrups, Mellow offers brunch options which stand out from the usual all-you-can-eat formula. Sunday is pancake day, and these can come either sweet, with various fillings (chocolate, banana, speculaas, blueberry) or savory, in many different colors (spinach, red pepper or natural). Simply choose your toppings, add some extras and wash it all down with a fresh smoothie, yogurt shake or delicious coffee.
