Etterbeek doesn’t need much of an introduction to locals. A highly urbanized commune in the center of Brussels, it is located next to the European Quarter and the Cinquantenaire. Though not as artistic as Saint-Gilles, and not as green as its neighbors Woluwe-Saint-Pierre, Woluwe-Saint-Lambert or Auderghem, Etterbeek has a lot to offer, including great places for breakfast and brunch. Here are some of the best.
Scandinavian design plus great food – what’s not to like? Some may already know about Living Room, a concept store where design and food meet. It is also a great breakfast spot in Etterbeek – although breakfast is served exclusively on Saturdays. Guests can stop in for a tasty meal and the opportunity to browse for new household decor.

Coffee lovers, unite! The coffee gods have graced Brussels with OR Coffee, a unique micro-roastery bar that originated in Ghent. This espresso haven offers a variety of different blends of coffee with 70 percent of the beans coming directly from farmers in Burundi, Rwanda, Brazil and Ethiopia. But since the focus is on breakfast, let’s talk about the food. Though there is officially no brunch menu, guests can enjoy delicious breakfast options such as freshly pressed juice, pastries or bread and eggs.
This coffee corner‘s motto is ‘Anytime is Olive’s time.’ Open early during the week, from 7:30 am, Olive’s breakfast menu is full of delicious and tasty options. A must-try is the gourmet bagel, but the scrambled eggs with bacon and toast are particularly enticing as well. The staff is friendly and always serve with a smile, which is definitely a bonus on a rainy Monday morning.
