There’s no doubt that Brussels is having a bit of a moment with coffee. Great spots are popping up all over the city, so no matter which part of town you’re in there’s always a great place for a cuppa just around the corner. After sharing with you the best tea rooms in Brussels, I gathered all my great finds when it comes to coffee. Enjoy!



The well-known roastery and specialty coffee shop from Leuven has now an outpost in Brussels. Coffee is excellent, the interior is bright and modern and there are even healthy snacks to enjoy “sur place” or to take away. > Read the full review here <



A great spot to discover Ethiopian coffee just a stone’s throw from the beautiful Grand Place. Organically grown and made from single origin beans, coffee here is roasted on a daily basis and has a very rich flavor. Make sure to try their passion fruit tart! > Read the full review here <



If you are a slow coffee aficionado or wish to try unique brewing methods in Belgium, this place is for you! The beautiful garden terrace in the backyard is an oasis of calmness for warm days. > Read the full review here <



The little brother of the Cafe de la Presse is a great place for a coffee pit stop between shopping and sightseeing in the Sablon. If you’re hungry you, can always have a slice of homemade cake or a cupcake from Lilicup. > Read the full review here <



Choose between their branches in Dansaert or Place Jourdan and enjoy coffee varieties from all over the world roasted in Aalst and brewed with different techniques to highlight their flavour and aroma. Industrial decor, free wifi and knowledgeable staff who are happy to help. > Read the full review here <



A very cosy cafe where you can spend hours sipping your coffee, browsing through magazines or working on your laptop. Apart from great coffee, here you can find delicious bagels and brunch during the weekends. Try their speculoos latte! > Read the full review here <



This little cafe close to Parc Royal may lack in space but makes up in atmosphere and good coffee. A great place to relax, enjoy a cup of coffee and maybe a slice (or two!) of their homemade cakes. > Read the full review here <

Have you tried any of these places? What are your favourite spots for coffee in Brussels?
