Be a txikitero, my friend
Bilbao, Spain

In Bilbao there are not residents, there are txikiteros. Txikiteros are names given to those who drink txikitos, small glasses of wine served in the bars.

Best Waffle places in Brussels

You have already tried the mussels, the waterzooi and a long etcetera that is hidden within the best dishes of Belgian gastronomy. But then comes the moment we've all been waiting for: dessert.

When we talk about Brussels and dessert, one thing comes to mind: waffles. Assuming you've already bought your chocolates and chocolates in the best chocolate shops in the city, of course.


Types of waffles in Brussels

Beware that not all waffles are the same. There are two main types of waffles if you are looking for a sweet dessert in Brussels.

To sum up, there are Brussels waffles, which are characteristically lighter in flavour, with a crunchy exterior. And on the other hand, the Belgian or Liège waffles, rectangular waffles with no sugar on top but with the well-known toppings.

Which is better of the two? We leave that up to you, so you'll have to try them to decide. Enjoy your sweet homework.


Best Waffles places in Brussels

Belgian Waffles

Rue du Marché aux Poulets 51

Located just a stone's throw from the Brussels Stock Exchange, this place has a reputation among tourists and locals alike for serving one of the best, if not the best, waffles in Brussels. And that's no easy feat due to the high standards and competition.

The batter is tasty, the toppings full of flavour and top quality, the price is reasonable and the location is fabulous. Stop by their cosy place and find out for yourself whether their reputation is deserved or not.


Obe Belgian waffles

Rue de l'Etuve 4

Just a few metres from the Grand Place, one of the places you can't miss on your visit, just like this café. They offer waffles, or waffles, very juicy, fresh, and with just the right amount of sugar in their recipe. They are not cloying and their homemade flavour is noticeable from the first bite.

As they use fresh products, it's not surprising that they are already a little short of batter at the end of their opening hours, so stop by as soon as possible before they run out. This speaks for the freshness and quality of their products.


Beyond Waffles

Rue du Finistère 12

In the northern part of Brussels' city centre, a fun place with a colourful and cheerful décor awaits you. Everything about Beyond Waffles will make you smile and feel at home; from the warm and friendly staff to the tasty waffles to the handmade drinks and ice cream. Go for their products and stay for everything else they have to offer. They live up to their name.


Le Roi de la Gaufre

Rue de la Fourche 41

Just a few steps from the Jeanneke Pis, the famous sculpture of the peeing girl, and the Delirium Café, you will find this bakery that will delight the sweet-toothed in the house. Very good quality, combined with a cosy setting and very reasonable prices.

Add all these positive aspects to the fact that you have monuments nearby and a fantastic place to drink the best local craft beers, and you have the perfect plan for a great day out in Brussels.



Galerie Agora 48

In the Galerie Agora shopping centre, you'll find our healthiest option, without losing an ounce of flavour. You're going to wish this cute little café had a lot more space, as the space is just enough to gather around with a couple of stools, so you can sit quietly and enjoy the incredible flavour of their vegan and gluten-free waffles.


Manneken Pis Waffles

Rue des Bouchers 5

A place that offers waffles in honour of the most mischievous kid in all of Belgium, it has to be a good place to stop on your route through Brussels. Although it's about a seven-minute walk from the famous sculpture, it's a stone's throw from its little sister, Jeanneke Pis.

But if you've come this far, it's not for sightseeing, but to enjoy one of the best waffles in the city. Well done, here the taste is as delicious as the service. It's one of those places you wish you'd known about from the first minute of your trip. That's what we're here for, to tell you that the place is central, tasty, Belgian and cosy.


Eight and three

Rue du Marché aux Herbes 21

Did someone say central, tasty, irresistible? Yes, we said it, and we also say: Eight and three. Stop by this place to get your strength back, for breakfast to kick-start your day or for a snack at the end of your sightseeing tour, but most importantly, stop and come in.

The delicious taste of their waffles is just one of the highlights of this place, where the service also stands out. You may not be particularly impressed by the décor when you walk in, but once you get a whiff of what's in the air, you won't want to go anywhere else.



Nieuwstraat 27/29

In the northern part of the downtown area, Galet offers quality, freshly made dough and a price that will seem low after you have eaten one of their waffles, if you are able to finish the whole thing. Don't expect a big room or a place to sit, if you go to Brussels, you become just another citizen, and here, you eat on a bench or while walking.


Maison Dandoy - Galeries

Galerie du Roi 2

One of the city's must-visits, one of those places whose fame precedes them and you're already predisposed to try something really delicious. Crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, this is the fabulous piece of gastronomic history you're about to enjoy. It's worth waiting in line for the queue that's sure to be out the door.

In addition to this location, Maison Dandoy has another location on the Grand Place and Rue Charles Buls 14, but the one in the Galerie is our favourite.


Waffle place in Brussels

Rue du Marché aux Herbes 15

Behind the back of St. Nicholas Church, a delicious stop awaits you. As the name promises, this is a place for waffles and for those with a sweet tooth. You'll find a wide variety of flavours in the toppings and a very friendly and helpful staff.
