JAT’ : RUE DE NAMUR 28, 1000 BRUSSELS

We love to make coffee for a city that loves to drink it

Jat’ is a coffee house with a sharp retro aesthetic and a straightforward yet satisfying brunch offering. There’s a good buzz and for those who like to work in a café atmosphere, and with plenty of sockets available and a strong Wifi connection, it’s very laptop friendly.

It’s a sociable spot and though it’s generally quiet in the mornings, it can be difficult to get a table on weekend afternoons so arrival before lunchtime is advised for groups.

If you’re off on a cultural outing, it’s also a great place for a leisurely start to the day as the location is just around the corner from several of Brussels’ major museums and for a post-brunch treasure hunt, the Sablon antiques market is close-by as well.

But less of the preamble and back to the main event.

The brunch menu is fixed at 14 euro per person and consists of:

– Scrambled eggs served plain, with bacon or salmon, accompanied by a small salad.

– Bread basket including a choice of croissant, pain au chocolat or couque au raisins.

– Fruit salad or yoghurt with a fruit or museli topping.

– Orange or grapefruit juice.

– Coffee or tea.

It’s a good sized brunch – you certainly won’t be hungry afterwards – but for those still looking for something sweet, or just calling in for a coffee and a sugar fix, I’d definitely also recommend their amazing brownies.

My personal favourite is the snickers brownie, but the chocolate caramel and chocolate fudge brownies are equally top notch and hard to resist!
