Downtown Brussels is characterized by the beautiful historical Grand Place, Manneken Pis, and lots and lots of tourists. However, this shouldn’t discourage you from venturing out for some brunch. On the contrary, some of the most mouthwatering and best brunch spots can be found right in the heart of Brussels, and at extremely democratic prices. Here are our recomendations.

Peck 47

Feeling peckish? Then look no further than Peck 47, a cute café no more than a stone’s throw away from the Grand Place. Featuring a fresh, original brunch selection, such as lavender-infused granola, or poached eggs on sourdough toast with smoked salmon, Peck 47 also serves lunch, smoothies and cakes.

Les Filles Plaisirs Culinaires

As well as serving an absolutely delicious brunch during the weekends, Les Filles Plaisirs Culinaires is also an original and well-thought-out concept. The idea is to experience great cooking while feeling at home, so you share a large table with other guests and help yourself to the food on the stove. Les Filles also offers cooking lessons and takeaway.

Address: 46 Rue du Vieux Marché aux Grains, Brussels, Belgium, +32 2 534 04 83

Chez Rachel

Already famous for its delicious burgers and bagels, Chez Rachel is equally worth visiting for their generous brunches. Try the Patsy Stone brunch, which features bacon, salad and nachos, as well as pastries, eggs, dessert and drinks. The fun interior and the friendly service are also good reasons why people keep returning to this place.

Address: 100 Rue du Marché au Charbon, Brussels, Belgium, +32 2 503 37 59

John & Rose

For the more highbrow brunch eater, there is John & Rose, an art café and exhibition space with a tastefully decorated interior. The brunch is light and healthy, and the atmosphere is cozy and relaxing, making the experience delightful as well as enlightening.

Run by an absolutely lovely older couple, A.M. Sweet serves breakfast and functions as a tea room the rest of the day. The premises have the feel of a cozy apartment, which provides an oasis of calm in the heart of the city, and the selection of cakes and sweets are of extremely high quality. Be sure to say hello to Cézanne, the resident dog, who can usually be found taking a nap between the chairs on the ground floor.
