Multicultural and cozy, Ixelles is a place packed with fascinating sights, museums, cultural centers and, of course, restaurants and coffeehouses. Ixelles has a number of wonderful places for breakfast and brunch – ideal locations in which to start your day before you head into town. Here are a list of the top ten.
Brunch does not always equal eggs and toast. Little Tokyo serves brunch on Sunday mornings, so get ready for your first meal of the day – it will be a new experience. The brunch menu includes daikon mousse, fish with rice or soba and salads with crunchy vegetables. But if these don’t suit your taste, you can also choose pancakes or bacon.
Opening hours: Tues-Sat 12 am-2:30 pm & 6:30 pm-10:30 pm
Little Tokyo, 15 Rue Sainte Boniface, 1050 Ixelles, Belgium, +32 2 513 48 41
This is the perfect spot for lunch or a snack, but don’t forget about breakfast. Within walking distance of the Horta Museum, Le Pain du Châtelain is a great spot to get a croissant, some muesli or an omelette and a hot drink before exploring what Ixelles has to offer, or to get some work done while enjoying a coffee.
Opening hours: Mon 7 am-4 pm, Sat 7 am-5 pm & Sun 8:30 am-4 pm
Le Pain du Châtelain, 29 Place du Châtelain, Ixelles, Belgium, +32 2 534 65 95
As the name implies, Workshop Café attracts many people to type away on their laptops – the pleasant atmosphere and comfy chairs make it a great place to get some work done, or start getting creative. When you stop by in the morning, don’t forget to get some breakfast as well. You can check the fridge for ready-to-eat snacks, or you can order a hot dish.
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 7:30 am-7 pm & Sun 10 am-6 pm
Workshop Café, 146 Avenue Louise, Ixelles, Belgium, +32 489 32 82 04
