Capoue is one of those ice cream names, known in Brussels for its superior artisanal ice cream and flavours. Whether you want to experience this sitting inside or as a take away , ordering from their pavement window , you know you will get quality. Ice cream lovers , do not hesitate !!

this company came to my office for an afternoon with several flavors. Everyone seemed happy with their choices. The selections were chocolate, vanilla, speculoos, stracciatella, melon, and strawberry. maybe a couple of others I cannot recall. I had chocolate and strawberry. Both were delicious - smooth, not too sweet. The chocolate - importantly -stayed tasty all the way through. I've... More

Nothing to compare with Giolitti in Rome and Berthillon in Paris..The caramel and coco are very creamy but not strong in taste. I did not finish it.

I was told this place was great and because I am a ice cream addict I had to try it. I got 5 different flavors for my wife and I.. Not one of them was amazing. It did have a real home made texture to it but it just lacked the flavor. I got my wife the yoghurt flavor, she... More

This is often considered and suggested as a good ice cream joint in Brussels. The truth is that their ice cream is bad. Really, not good at all. Maybe it is better than the fake ice cream from the cars that go around brussels which are 100%artificial. Really a pity. Sad to say, but go for an industrial one if... More

The food standard in brussels is low. the bars, bakeries, restaurants, (few) ice cream shops show often good facilities and some decent presentation, they lack of "know how". Capoue is no different and their ice creams may be good for the local average offer, but they're simply insipid and with a slushee like texture. The extra sugar they put into... More

Near Cinquantenaire... Not great atmosphere, but who cares if ice cream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
