The grandest grand cafe in all Brussels occupies the majestic gilded facade of the former tailors’ guild on the Grand-Place; don’t waste your money eating here (you pay way over the norm for the location) but grab a table on the suntrap terrace in the early evening and watch the world go by. Service is hurried and prices are steeps but the views, the fizz by the glass, and the dozens of beer options all contribute to making this bustling bar a uniquely Belgian experience.
