Aux Merveilleux de Fred

Hand-sized or to share, the sweets served at Merveilleux de Fred are as beautiful as they are good, and especially light, an impressive feat seeing as a Merveilleux is basically made of cream, meringue and chocolate chips. Classic or available in different flavors, the names themselves are irresistible, such as l’Incroyable (meringue, speculoos whipped cream and white chocolate chip), or le Magnifique (meringue, praline whipped crème, caramelized almond and hazelnut chips). These merveilleux are ready to be eaten while walking near the Grand Place of Brussels.

Aux Merveilleux de Fred, Rue du Marché aux Herbes 7, Brussels, Belgium, + 32 2 540 26 08

At Chouconut, a tea room, cream puffs, cookies and donuts become pieces of art. Forget the old fashioned recipes and discover surprising and delicious combinations of flavors. Strawberry and bergamot, peach, verbena and red currant jelly cream puff, crème brûlée donut, double chocolate chip, and chocolate chunk cookie are only a small part of the decadent treats available.

Éclairs et Gourmandises

Éclairs et Gourmandises dusts off the classic recipe of éclairs and provides a sweet new twist on the dessert.

Discover these creations in one of their three shops.
