Café/bar + small dishes
It is the gay-friendly café/bar where you are sure it is open. The terrace is one of the best of Brussels, according to me and others: definitely the closest and best spot where to enjoy small lunches or apéros. The non-alcoholic special drink is called "Chose": a must to drink after the alcool you have maybe drunk in the eve... When it is colder outside, the mint tea is also worth a try.

Sightseeing
Well, it is the must-see sculpture to discover for every visitor of Brussels! You cannot miss it...and it is close-by. If I were you, I would escape the waffle and chocolate shops in the surroundings. ☆ For a waffle, I prefer it without any supplements. Look for the Pascalino waffle trucks in the city at Monts-des-Arts, Louise metro station or elsewhere. ☆ For chocolates, I prefer to buy at the "Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert" (or "Galerie de la Reine"), and especially at the oldest chocolate shop of Brussels: Neuhaus.

UNESCO sees the Grand Place in Brussels as being "an outstanding example of the eclectic and highly successful blending of architectural and artistic styles that characterises the culture and society of this region". What I recommend is to buy some local beers and to sip them while seated on the pavement (if dry weather).

Food scene
After having been closed for years due to a fire, Rugantino opened again in 2019 at the same place: Boulevard Anspach 184-186, Bruxelles. They did not miss the 'savoir-faire' of pizzas and other Italian cuisine. Delivery is possible by ordering at +32 25112195, but it is definitely not far from the penthouse, so better to live the experience of this classic Italian restaurant. !!! CLOSED ON SUNDAYS !!!
