Ideal for strolling through the market although the items are over priced and not always antiques, however the pavement cafes around and patisseries are delicious

One of the nicest squares in Brussels. I love mostly the shops that surround it particularly the good restaurants that you can find in the square. My favourite is L'Entree Des Artistes.

One of the prettiest places in Brussels. Very elegant, overpriced, snobby but who's paying? There is a well-known café/pastry shop named Wittamer here, but it is mostly snobby and not really very special, IMHO.
