Fancy relaxing on a terrace? Then make your way to Parvis de Saint-Gilles. This square is overflowing with them! On sunny days, the square looks like one big terrace. You should start with two classics: Brasserie Verschueren and Brasserie De l’Union. These two authentic cafés have become a permanent fixtures in the capital, not to mention on this square. Brasserie Verschueren has been there since 1880!
Maybe it's a bit early for the atmosphere of a typical brasserie? In the mood for something fresh, fruity, colourful... then how about Café Flora? Their yellow chairs are great for aperitifs and brunches. Opposite there's Maison du Peuple, the perfect place for a drink or a bite. Looking for something a bit more chic? Then Cipiace is an absolute must. Their menu offers refined Italian specialities, fine wines and cocktails! In need of something a little more substantial? Then the hamburgers at Green Mango or the artisanal pizzas at L'Ermitage Saint-Gilles around the corner in rue de Moscou are just the ticket. The latter is also an absolute must for craft beer lovers.
