When the sun shines (and trust me, in Brussels this is a rare occurrence for a Saturday morning)… and even when it doesn’t… the streets are full of little boulangerie’s, tea rooms and cafe’s offering delightful freshly baked goods for take-away or consumption on the property (or at a little table on the pavement).
And this past Saturday…. after a week of hot, humid and blue sky days – it was actually overcast and somewhat miserable – but we still ventured out for a spot of brunch before heading off to an early afternoon movie.
Another gem on the corner of the Chatelain market is a place called Le Pain du Chatelain.
Offering a wide variety for breakfast – from muesli to fruit salad, omelette to croissants, etc… there is something for everyone! (Their menu also has a selection of Tartines (open sandwiches) as well as salads, bagels, quiches and croques)
HIM and a friend had the Le Royal (orange juice, 1 croissant, slices of 6grain bread and tea or coffee = 7Euros)
While I needed less bread and more egg… a omlette was the perfect choice! Filled with mozzarella and tomatoes… and served with a selection of salads (8.50Euros)… it felt healthy 🙂
Would I go back again? Maybe… surrounding tables ordered Tartines and other items – and these ignited a bit of food jealousy… so I might HAVE to go back just to satisfy the little green monster within!
