Rue des Capucins 55, 1000 Bruxelles, Belgium
This is a late review as I was there on a Sunday already a few weeks ago. It's a nice and chilled place with ok food and friendly staff. However, I find it hard to say that I loved it. From a very slow service, considering we arrived early and it was almost empty, to a cold decor, with plastic plants on the tables and on the outdoor sitting area. Nevertheless, it is good to see vegan/vegetarian places like this in Brussels and I still recommend it. I see great potential in this place, but there is still some space for improvement.
Super chilled vegan hang out "safe space" with friendly service and most importantly: yummy vegan desserts. The atmosphere here is relaxed and casual, including some nice couches, board games and even a small area with toys for young children. The staff are just as casual, friendly, warm and welcoming as the space. Highly recommended even if you aren't vegan or veggie just as relaxed places to have a quiet coffee - even on your own or with friends - is always a good thing. I'm stuck with loving the place and the vibe and the poor service though. If you aren't just ordering a drink and a cake, expect slow service. In the three times we've come here (once late in the evening once on a weekday afternoon and once for Sunday brunch), service has been mind-blowingly slow, and two of those three times our order ended up at the wrong table and the staff simply pulled it off their table to give it to us. Expect about a 30 minute wait for their (amazingly delicious) pancakes, even if it's very quiet. We experienced an hour and a half wait for a Sunday brunch. Unfortunately I really want to love this place but I find it difficult if it takes so long - especially when waiting with young children - and I feel the service level will be the cause of death for the Judgy Vegan. As a local from the neighbourhood who wants to be a regular customer, I really want this to work, but I now feel the end is inevitable if things don't change. Unless you have a lot of time on your hands, come for a drink and a cake, but it just takes too long to order anything from the kitchen, even if there are only a few people there.
Burger was incredible, really good vegan cheese and mayo. Chips were good. Servers lovely and helpful, one stood and translated the whole menu for us because they only have it in French. Good range of boardgames and puzzles though the games are in French.
Went here for the all you can eat vegan buffet. The buffet was absolutely amazing. I wish my stomach was bigger because I just wanted to eat so much more that's how good it was! A wide variety of dishes such as pasta, curry, salads, 'cheese', vegetables.. It was all so good. If you come for the buffet they prefere if you reserve because then they know there will be enough food for everyone.
Excellent food and friendly staff, who smiled while translating the menu. And fabulous cake. AND EVERYTHING IS VEGAN! So much choice.
