Le Brosella, Brussels, Belgium

What’s the one thing you need to do if you go to Belgium? Yep – Real Belgian Waffles!

In my walks around Brussels I’d walked past many shops / cafes offering waffles but hadn’t dropped into one yet. One afternoon I decided I’d better go out and give them a try or I’d never be allowed back into the country.

Quite near my hotel is the Place des Martyrs where around 400 heroes from the 1830 Belgian Revolution are buried. The square is surrounded by the Flemish Government cabinet office, theatres and restaurants.

Overlooking the square’s main monument is La Brosella, a Belgian cafe / bar with both inside and outside seating.

I’d already made sure that Belgian Waffles were on the menu before I sat down outside.

After a short wait and I had my waffles and a Rochefort 10.

I must say that this place is very reasonably priced given it’s in a touristy area.

If you’re in the area drop in for the waffles… and a couple of beers 🙂
