The Village du Pain on Place Brugmann is perfect for late breakfast/lunch/brunch, a very cosy place with a great ambiance.
Many customers just hop in to take out the bread, croissants, quiches and pastries. Sur place, however, you can enjoy a varied selection of salads, homemade pancakes genre galettes from Brittany, many different toasts (my favourite is the one with artichokes and grey Northsea shrimp), lasagnes, etc ., not to mention delicious coffees and cappuccinos offered with homemade brownies. Friendly service and just simply a fun place to enjoy time by yourself, or to get to know other customers when you are seated at the restaurant's long table.
Ideal for brunch on a rainy Sunday like today -- and even better outside on the Place Brugmann terrace on a warm sunny day.
