    A good place to taste the famous waffles (be those of Liège or Belgians), maybe you have to do a bit of tail, which is located very close to the famous meon, worth it.

    First pass, I ask a question to a saleswoman: contemptuous and absolutely not professional response... Second pass: saleswoman considerate and helpful, answered all our questions. It's expensive, but it's very good. The packaging are wonderful!

    We have come to buy some of best speculoos in the city, a lady we had so served, there was no price for purchases in bulk so we didn't know what to expect, asked just two cookies with caramel and out we realize that our first sachet of speculoos more two biscuits cost two euros more than the second bag containing just the speculoos. So you know that the price is much higher for a mixture of biscuits, bin so we said to put in the same bag to not annoy but apparently had been asked these famous cookies with caramel in a bag other than that would have been much cheaper. The lady told us that like a flower, normal, obviously they not refunded us the difference or anything. Back to cookies, they are delicious, apart from this feeling of being screwed in beauty hotel is to visit in Brussels!

    I can only speak for the waffles, but I was trying to decide if this place would be better then just getting a waffle from one of its less famous rivals (such as the waffle shop next door to it). The prices are about the same between the two (and others), so really the question becomes "is it worth the wait in line" and I'd say probably, yes. Only just though.

    I have to say I'm rating on the experience since I didn't actually eat anything. I visited the Maison Dandoy tea room today hoping to have a tea. A table had opened up so I sat down and a minute later a server came over and asked me to move. She said it was a table for four - and as I was only one- told me to sit at an already occupied table with a group who didn't look keen on having a single stranger join their already eating group. Were there any other smaller tables there I would have gladly moved, in fact I would have sat there in the first place, instead I stood and said I'd just leave. The waitress didn't seem bothered even though the group of two (who had arrived after me) seemed to feel awkward and tried to give up the table. Honestly I wouldn't go back there if you paid me. I took my money elsewhere and would suggest you do the same - unless you fancy paying high prices to ride waitstaff

    Brussels waffle wasn't anything special but pricey. Tea was excellent. Would recommend the tea and biscuit special which is delicious and good value for money. Service was not bad but not very efficient. Overall go for tea and biscuits and the atmosphere.

    Tried their Liege waffle last, expecting it to be the best since it has so many great reviews. It is the closest to Grand Place, so maybe that has something to do with it, but the waffle was only ok. It was the soggiest of the 3 I tried and the most expensive (over €3 if you eat in, €2.70 if you take away), but the amount of sweetness was good (not too sweet). Apparently their Brussels waffle (what Americans normally think of when we think of waffles) is more expensive than the Liege waffle. Didn't try that, so maybe that's what everyone thinks is so great? At least the service was quick when ordering for take-away, but I'd probably pass next time around.

    Tea room used to be the best place to go to in Brussels for a cup of coffee and a waffle. Service was exquisite and the food excellent... until the hordes of tourists discovered this secret haven of tranquility.... nowadays there's queues, it's loud, the quality of food has become mediocre and the once so professional waiter has been replaced by youngsters who can't even understand a word of flemish. Have been going here for 20+ years, but now I don't even bother anymore. Tourist trap. Once 5* - now 3*

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
