Past the Cabin: An unscripted tour via Brussels



Find inspiration in the city’s cafés

“Brussels’ cafés have always been places for like-minded individuals to come together, share ideas and find inspiration,” Heidi says. During the 19th century, artists and writers including Victor Hugo often frequented Café Le Cirio, a traditional Belgian brasserie near the Grand Palace. Today, customers flock to the historic café for its gilded Art Nouveau interiors and wide selection of beers. 

Another famous hangout is La Fleur en Papier Doré (pictured on the right), an intimate café and bar that has been listed as a protected monument since 1997. Look closely at the photo hanging in the back room and you’ll spot several prominent artists and writers, including the Surrealist painter René Magritte. 

At Garage-à-Manger – a garage turned café on Rue Washington – you’ll find plenty of plush armchairs, an extensive organic menu, plus direct access to Pêle-Mêle bookshop next door. It’s the perfect place to unwind with a good book after a busy afternoon exploring the city.
