Aksum Coffee House is the temple of Ethiopian coffee in Brussels. It serves some of the best brews in town. Safely hidden in a corner just a stone’s throw from the busy Grand Place, it’s impossible to pass by and not be tempted by the smell of freshly brewed coffee beans. There are actually another two branches, in Galerie du Roi and De Brouckère, but the one close to Grand Place is my favourite.


In this temple of coffee, certified-organic coffee comes straight from Ethiopia, the beans are hand-roasted and the baristas are passionate. Aksum Coffee House is undoubtedly the ideal place to drink quality coffee in Brussels…

Located close to Madou and not far from Parc Royal, My Little Cup is housed in a small yet very bright corner shop with a beautiful facade. Behind the counter you will find one of the welcoming owners who will take your order with a smile and make you feel right at home. Seating space is limited but the decor is clean and modern. There is free wifi and nice music playing in the background.

There is a very relaxing vibe about this place. It is full of locals who pass by and get their coffee to go and regulars who pop by for a quick cup of coffee before they continue  on with the rest of their day.
