“'Fashionable' people watching in Brussels...”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Place du Grand Sablon is situated in the trendy upmarket part of old Brussels. Great to visit on sunny week-ends for attractions such as the up-market outdoor Antique Market and Antique shops, fine Belgian Chocolate 'boutiques', trendy wine bars and fashionable restaurants with outdoor seating lining the pavements... A plethora of designer clothes, fur coats, 'toy' dogs in Louis Vouitton carriers, Jackie O sunglasses...Visit Cafe Leffe, order some Belgian Beer and a snack of Moules Frites and pass a lazy afternoon doing some 'fashionable' people-watching...
