Its a tiny little coffee house not far from the Grand Place serving some of the best coffee in Brussels using their own Ethiopian sourced beans. Hot chocolate is also very good as are the brownies.

Aksum has some of the best Ethiopian coffee beans, freshly roasted and brewed into a warm cup of goodness. Definitely not a spot to miss if you love coffee. Also it is now located in a very classy historical building, interesting by itself. It's not too big, so for sitting inside with your coffee it may be a bit difficult,... More

love the atmosphere of this tiny cafe off the Grand Place - I am a huge fan of their hot chocolate (the dark version) - I think they add nutmeg to it, which is delicious! I can sit their for hours with a book, drinking myself through the menu :-) - expresso and hibiscus tea (bissap) are also favourites of... More

Excellent Ethiopian coffee place that roasts its own beans. Try their cappuccino. The bar is very small though, so avoid the rush hour.

Went for a coffee here whilst waiting for my train, after a Brussels work trip (thanks to raving TA reviews!). I had an Amarula coffee/espresso which didn't quite blow me away, but the hot chocolate and chocolate cake (or brownie of some sort?) didn't disappoint! The place was buzzing, the service is warm and friendly - perfect for a quaint... More

We discovered this little place in the corner of the city center, which turned out to be embracing the greatest Cappuccino ever that you barely could find anywhere else, for sure in Belgium, and probably in the world! Since then we go there at least once a week! If you are a coffee lover, then this is the place to... More

The first caffe latte I ever tried was there and I absolutely loved it. Took some Belgian chocolate to the place with me and sat outside to enjoy my drink. They also sell Ethiopian coffee whole beans or grounded to your preference. I took some coffee back home and my parents loved it as well. If you love coffee then... More

After a long day walking around Brussels, I stopped in here based on the recommendations on TripAdvisor, and it was the perfect place to rest my feet, enjoy a cup of tea, and read my book for a while. Perfect ambiance, not touristy at all, and the service was wonderful. The hibiscus tea is fantastic!
