One of Uccle’s places to see and be seen, La Terasse de l’Hippodrome is a great option during the summer months as it has a massive swimming pool installed on the deck. Although there is a dress code, it is still a great option for families as the kids can use up their energy in the pool while the adults relax on the terrace. Drinks can be had from midday onwards until late.

Charlotte/Café Cuisine takes its name from a familiar face in the neighborhood, a certain Charlotte who used to run a frietkot near the premises of the café (called Le Vieux Dieweg back in the day). The owners of Charlotte/Café Cuisine have dedicated their brand new café to her and even staged a fictional marriage between Charlotte and Emile, another famous personage from Ixelles who has his very own bistro dedicated to him. Drinks can be had at any time of the day, so don’t hesitate to sit back and relax on the terrace of this wonderful new address.
