Avenue de la Couronne 443, 1050 Ixelles, Belgium
This is a very pleasant space to go have coffee with friends and eat some snacks. The staff are very friendly and kind. The fact that there are stairs at the entrance and to second floor access, makes it difficult for strollers and wheelchairs locomotion. The size of the dedicated area for the children is very good, but for the safety of the little ones, a parent supervision is essential. In my opinion, it would be awesome to increase the menu options.
The decor is interesting and I like it, the kids corner seemed a good reason to go. The food is inconsistent... the first time I went I took the açaí bowl... 7 something euros and made of tasteless blended frozen berries from a bag. I had to return it. That how tangy and tasteless it was. The second or thirst time i went I would take a coffee, Never try the végétal milk there as whatever brand they use just doesn’t mix well with coffee... the taste is so strange. Their black coffee is decent but nothing waw and definitely not for that price. The fourth time I went was in summer, the beer selection was thin but I found one I liked, unfortunately the barista forget to put them in the fridge, by 25 degree weather, so I was so keen on one I took it anyway and of course, warm beer is meh... We also ordered two potato portion that had good taste but dry texture, one loyd burger that had decent taste (the whopper is just as good and not 12 euros +.you can get a nice burger with delicious fries at blue dog for 2 extra euros ) The milk shake was room temperature And no consistency as if it was only milk no vanilla non ice no creamy feel. After several attempts at cimetières d’ixelles location, my conclusion is that this place is way too expensive and has put much more emphasis on decor than quality, food and pricinbig. Every time I went there I felt somehow cheated and regretting. This last time i m kicking myself for going back because the two cooks got annoyed with me for asking them for the second portion of fries I had ordered and paid for. He got irritated and raised his voice at me to tell me that the little plate he gave me was the portion for 2. It wasn’t obvious at all! but I just stopped talking as I saw that they couldn’t care less and after half an hour we left... he probably felt bad and came out to talk but I that point my decision was made. I m not going back. I don’t need a gift card or a free meal, I m just done. I imagine having a business is hard so I do wish them improve and solidify but for now, it’s just not my cup of tea. I ll stay away. Sorry,,, my honest review
I really love this place with kids:) burgers and some bagels are really delicious. Beverage are super healthy taste. The price is a little bit expensive but its a reasonable. I recommend this place especially, if u look for a place with your kids.
- Terrible drinks: the lemonade had so much sugar in it there were still a thick layer at the bottom of the glass and the green juice was not filtered, so a big part of the glass was just the deposits from the juicer - Terrible service: the staff was not friendly or helpful, the 2 terrible juices took more than 20 mins to deliver without any explanation - Overpriced: for what we got, this is an outrageous price to pay
Nice café with brunch and lunch possibilities. The team was adorable. Only downside is the difficulty to park near the spot (trivial issue).
