  • Love the traditional waffles. Very small cafe upstairs but we were so lucky got a table. We went back for another waffle on the day we left, but just a long queue.  more »

  • 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*
