What: Window selling Belgian waffles opposite the Manneken Pis.
Prices: They advertise waffles for €1 but as soon as you add a little something prices jump. For Nutella* (which, it turns out, to this reviewer’s great disgust, is not vegetarian) and banana this reviewer paid €3.20.
Vegetarian menu: The waffles are vegetarian and you can choose toppings from several different fruits, honey, etc.
Drinks: Bottles of water, cans of fizzy drinks.
Service: Fast and friendly. English is spoken (handy for those who don’t speak French).
Comfortable? Not applicable.
Was the food good? Yes. It made for a tasty, cheap and filling snack.
Toilets: Not applicable.
My advice to the chef: How about a vegan waffle?
My advice to the manager: I think it would be more reasonable to make it clear that it is a plain waffle that costs only €1. As it is, the very large “€1 euro” sign draws a crowd who probably end up spending around three times that amount.
Overall: Very touristy spot to pick up a Belgian waffle. There are many such windows around Brussels selling waffles. A fun snack for when you’re in the city, though it seems that vegans miss out on this one.
