If you're asking around Brussels for where to have the best breakfast, you will at some point inevitably be directed to La Clef d'Or. They open very early in the morning, so if your jet-lag has you up with the sun, you can definitely head to this restaurant in Les Marolles. Right in the Place du Jeu de Balle, visitors to La Clef d'Or can take advantage of the busy market that takes place in the mornings, then head over for a brunch filled with dishes like croque madames, steak tartare and omelette, of course accompanied by coffee or Belgian beer.
You'll find this typical Parisian brasserie next to Bois de la Cambre. Smart waiters welcome you at the entrance right next to a wonderful display of fresh fish, shellfish, lobsters and other sea treasures. You can take out your plateau de fruits de mer for a chic picnic in the woods. The ambiance of the restaurant is cozy, relaxing and friendly and you can rub shoulders with the local beau monde.
Le Clan des Belges boasts a prime location at the heart of Brussels' social scene. The ambiance at this restaurant is intentionally reminiscent of the 1920s prohibition era. Its antiquarian decor is replete with industrial lamps, bookshelves, a gramophone and photographic memorabilia. Chef Joris creates a menu of traditional French and Belgian flavors served with fine wine and spirits. Classics include Côte de Bœuf, Cordon Bleu and top notch Mégacheeseburger. Le Clan des Belges also does a popular brunch on the weekends.
