The chocolates are amazing and there's something for everyone's taste. But what really tipped it for me was the customer service. The woman at the counter knew everything about her chocolates and her attention to detail with picking the chocolates and boxing them and wrapping them was astounding. Really an all-round great experience and totally recommendable.

Next to Taschen shop - the chocolates were worth trying. This is a city full of the best chocolatiers - I enjoyed sampling most, I brought these home.

Tried the usual chocolatiers of belgium before and this one stood out. Was recommended by a local and personally suggest that you pick up your stash of chocolates only from here. They have many truffles and combinations to choose from with a large variety to suit all palettes.

It's not Marcolini. The best Pralines Belges are now made by Frederique Blondeel. There are very few places where you can get them in Belgium, which is a good sign. The tiny Sablon boutique has a trully good [and a remarcably humble] service and all you might wish to sample. Another well kept secret is their excellent chocolat chaud.

I must say that Frederic Blondeel has redefined chocolate for me. In fact, Frederic Blondeel pralinés, truffles, chocolate coated speculoos and nutty meringues have become some of my favorite gifts for guests, friends and family. The hot chocolate actually deserves that name, being a dense chocolate concoction that lets you experience the intense flavor of the chocolate and the other... More

This place was recommended by my air bnb host. I got a box of pralines and some chocolate covered biscuits and now I wish I had brought back more. My dad and I have been hiding the chocolates from each other. The pralines are truly spectacular, layers of flavour. It's just good stuff-they know what they are doing.

Probably one of my favorite chocolatiers in Brussels specializing in interesting flavors like bay leaf and basil. Their passionfruit caramel is to die for. The flavor of the passionfruit is so intense. This particular location also serves ice cream and coffee and there is a small sit down area. Service can be a little slow but the chocolate is worth...
