Does anyone know of a good breakfast spot in the Manneken Pis area? Also ISO chocolate recs. It's probably been handled in this thread before but I can't seem to find it.
Not exactly Mannekin Apis area, but a few minutes walk is Peck 47. I’ve had breakfast/lunch there at least half a dozen times and am always happy with.

I really liked Galler last time I was there. Marcoloni was great quality, but somewhat sterile for me. A chocolate that's perfectly made with black tea is neat to try, but not as delicious as a well made truffle in my book.

Thanks guys! I'll probably do a mini chocolate tour and check out all of those places. Peck 47 looks great, not super close but I think I'll survive a few minutes walk :)

Anyone have any good recommendations for places to buy bread and cheese near Cantillon? Would like to buy some to take to Cantillon to pair with the lambics. Yes, I know they sell some cheese there. I was more looking for a little more variety plus some good bread :)
While I didn’t get a chance to try it out when I was there this past fall as they were closed, a local had recommended La Fruitiere. It’s pretty much right next to Moeder Lambic and looks fantastic.

Yeah, I was thinking that place as well. They're hosting a beer and cheese pairing event after Quintessence so maybe it's the best place to go. I was wondering if there were other places closer to Cantillon.

That place is 2 tram stops and a 5min walk away from cantillon, pretty easy.
Near cantillon you have mostly Moroccan and Lebanese places (which are cheap and delicious FYI), but I’m not sure if a cheese shop nearby, some small markets, but not a cheese shop.

There was a great place near my B&B when I was there but it was over by St. Catherine.

I've done that walk a few times a never thought of it as "nice." It's not long though, for sure.
You should come visit San Francisco. Brussels felt cleaner and safer. Boulevard Maurice Lemonier is a bit run down, sure, but you’re not stepping over discarded needles, human poop, and a crackhead trying to finesse you out of anything you got.

I live in the bay area, so up in the city relatively often. Much like I wouldn't consider waking to Cellarmaker or Mikkeller from BART or Caltrain nice, I wouldn't consider waking from Moeder to Cantillon nice

That’s fair. Nice wasn’t the best word to use. Doable or reasonable would have been more fitting.
