There’s a place, very near where I live, called Alice. It’s in the center of Merchtem, a town 20 km outside Brussels. It opened its doors on October 25th last year and owned by two sisters who run this beautiful place.
When going here you’ll discover a mishmash of generations, of drinks, food, and activities. You can find different kinds of coffee and tea. You can go there for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacking, etc. But it’s not only an eatery and coffee house, they also sell second hand kids clothing, they organize workshops and theaters for kids etc. Last Friday there was an Afterwork and they were open until 11 pm instead of 6 pm.
I was there with a friend I haven’t seen in a long time. We ate a brownie, which was delicious and very light. I always take the ginger tea because it’s so good. You also get a piece of cake, sugar, and honey with your tea. I heard that the sandwiches are very good too. My friend took an home made iced tea and was very happy with her choice!
So if you like a lively, animated place, where everything is fresh and home made, you should definitely check this place!!
Lots of love,
