The waffles with chocolate and Chantilly cream was so good. The waffle itself was light, airy, and crispy. The waiter was on point when he suggested the chocolate sauce...light and not too sweet. My addition of Chantilly cream kicked it up a notch. This was...More

Best tasting waffles. Awesome location. A must if you're in Brussels. You will find waffle places everywhere & lots of places offer waffles + toppings for 1 euro. Tempting but nothing like the waffles at Maison Dandoy..

I chose to sit upstairs to enjoy a Liege waffle with additional toppings (rather than buy one from another place and walk around trying to eat one). I'd heard Maison Dandoy was the place to do just that! I was pleased with the Liege waffle...More
