Pain Quotidien (Le)
It's found in Paris and New York, but this internationally renowned bakery is a Belgian invention and many folks admit that this is still the best bread in the city. In truth, it's not just a bakery but also a patisserie, delicatessen, snack bar and coffee house. Their farmers' bread is still baked by artisans. This shop as well as its 10 other Brussels locations have a provincial atmosphere, decorated with pine furniture and cream-coloured walls. The menu includes a selection of open sandwiches. Please try the typical cheese platter with radish and onions, salads and tarts.
We happened upon the shop on Ave. Louise and then went back to not only that shop again, but an additional (original) store in another part of Brussels. Nice atmosphere, excellent raspberry tart, and a real size cup of coffee to enjoy. Prices very reasonable and the staff at all locations were very friendly. I love the community table. We liked it so much that we tracked down the only store in London just to eat lunch there. It made our trip to Brussels much more enjoyable to have a comfortable place to go eat. Outstanding soups!

close to the Zavel; the interior is authentic art nouveau. The inside is full of mirrors and stained glass. ...
