Brussels Tour: Louise


High street shopping, restaurants, hotels and cinema, the Louise area is definitely one that I had to cover. I find the area a bit too touristic and traditional sometimes, missing the cool little arty shops and cafes that you get to find elsewhere in Flagey or Dansaert for example. Still, some places are definitely worth going.

So, ready for the second stop of ELT’s Brussels city guide? Here are my little coups-de-coeur around Avenue Louise…

Parlor cafe bruxelles

Start the day with a breakfast at the Parlor Cafe, chaussée de Charleroi (only 2 tram stops from Place Stéphanie). Have a Japanese tea, a coffee and one of their delicious bagels and cakes. I really like the atmosphere there, a little je-ne-sais-quoi en plus. Love it!

Then you can pass by Mmmmh!, the cooking shop where you’ll find all you need to cook, bake and prepare pretty good food.

Dille et KamilleDille et Kamille

Dille et KamilleDille & Kamille, one of my favorite shop for home accessories.

Young GalleryAfter a “visit” to Zadig et Voltaire, No Concept, The Kooples, Senteurs d’Ailleurs and co… Stop by the Young Gallery, a beautiful photography gallery in the heart of the Conrad hotel building. It features a new artist every 2 months. A nice place to escape the shopping craze around.

Cremerie de la vache

Cremerie de la vacheI find it hard to have a good lunch in the area, most of the restaurants are too touristic and lack charm. Still if you really want to take a break, la Crèmerie de la Vache is a nice place to eat. They serve sandwiches, soups, pasta and tempting pies.

For cool home accessories, push to Home autour du monde, rue de Namur. Lately I found these pallet trivets there. Pretty cool ehh?

For dinner don’t miss Sale Pepe Rosmarino, an oh-so authentic Italian restaurant that serves delicious food, one of my favorite spot in Brussels!

What are your favorite places in the area? Please share and I’ll make sure to pass by!

Have a great week my friends. xx.
