And it all tastes best with Houston's largest selection of Belgian beers on tap as well as a huge selection of Belgian beers by the bottle. Sample well-known favorites such as Stella Artois and Hoegaarden; Chimay Blanche, Red and Blue; Westmalle Dubbel and Tripel; Maredsous 8 & 10; St. Feuillen, Rochefort, Orval, Duvel, Estiminet, St. Bernadus ABT 12, Leffe, Blanche du Bruxelles, Kwak, Lindeman Frambois, Rodenbach and Palm.

This is our spot for mussels and we would visit more often if it wasn't such a drive for us to get there. I've tried the other food they offer and it is good but the steamed mussels are just too good to pass up especially with the bread, fries (homemade mayonnaise) and a nice beer (one that does not remind you of colored water). We'll be back.

Went to Cafe Brussels with a friend for lunch during Houston Restaurant Weeks and was so disappointed. The food was poor, especially the hamburger which was overcooked and had a strange texture. The salmon appetizer was just fair as it lacked flavor. The best part of the meal was the Belgium chocolate sauce for the ice cream. Sadly, we let the waiter take it away before we were finished. Can't recommend unless the kitchen staff gets a makeover.

I was actually invited by a friend to a spoken words event that was taking place in the restaurant. The restaurant has a traditional atmosphere and the setting is lovable.

This the place to come for great beer and mussels brought in from Seattle. Try the French pinion soup, lots of cheese. The kwak beer is the one to order.

...on draft we still have the wits about us to discuss the food. The Mussels Diabla were the best we've had together! The Endive Salad with a mustard vinaigrette had a variety of textures and flavors--we will be attempting to recreate this at home! The pork chop with French fries smothered in gravy and Brussels sprouts serves as the perfect comfort food to pair with the Belgian beer. The servers were attentive and conscientious. We loved our table on the sidewalk on this beautiful spring day.
