Welcome, fellow adventurers! I’m Rae, one-half of the dynamic duo behind “RaeRae and Bo’s Adventures,” and today, I’m taking you on a tour of the best vegan* cafés in Brussels. As a matcha enthusiast and vegan foodie, I’ve curated a list of six cafés that not only serve up delicious vegan fare but also brew a mean matcha latte – my go-to pick-me-up. So, buckle up, grab your reusable coffee cup and let’s explore the vibrant café culture of Brussels, one vegan dish and matcha sip at a time!

  1. Lucifer Lives

First up is Lucifer Lives, a quirky little café nestled in the heart of the historic Marolles district. Marolles is known for its bustling flea market and the iconic Palais de Justice, but for me, it’s all about Lucifer Lives. Their vegan pastries, cookies and dishes are devilishly good, and their matcha latte? Pure heaven. Plus, the café’s eclectic décor, complete with vintage furniture and a wall full of quirky art from the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s, makes it the perfect spot for a chill afternoon with friends. And the best part? You can enjoy all this without selling your soul to the devil (or breaking the bank)! Be sure to pick up a Lucifer Lives t-shirt or sweater!
Address: Rue Haute 120, 1000 Bruxelles

  1. Café du Sablon

Next, we venture to Café du Sablon, a matcha haven located near the stunning Notre Dame du Sablon and the Korean Cultural Centre. This café offers a variety of plant-based sandwiches, salads, and an array of pastries. With its cozy atmosphere and view of the historic church, it’s a great spot for a relaxed brunch or a quiet reading session. Don’t forget to admire the beautiful Gothic architecture of the church!
Address: 1000, Rue de la Régence 26, 1000 Bruxelles

  1. Barkboy

Then we have Barkboy, a trendy café located between the Central Station and the Flemish Parliament. This ecological café is a must-visit for its innovative vegan dishes and top-notch matcha lattes. With its industrial-chic décor and dog-friendly policy (yes, you can bring your furry friends!), Barkboy offers a unique café experience. The prices are reasonable, making it a great spot to relax and enjoy a leisurely brunch or a catch-up session with friends. Barkboy also sells t-shirts and sneakers that have been dyed using the bean residue that made your coffee! Sustainability meeting innovation! Don’t forget to take a stroll around afterwards, this area is known for its diverse culture and beautiful Art Nouveau buildings.

  1. Kafei Korner Sablon

Just a stone’s throw away from Place de la Chapelle is Kafei, an Asian café that prides itself on its organic and locally sourced menu. Their vegan options are plentiful, and their matcha game is strong. Try the matcha-infused cookies and muffins (thank me later!). If your sweet tooth permits it then do try their signature airy pancakes! The café’s bright, airy space is perfect for those days when you just want to unwind with a good book or catch up on some work. This café is a must for all matcha lovers! And while you’re there, don’t forget to check out the beautiful Notre-Dame de la Chapelle Church nearby. It’s a piece of Brussels’ history that’s worth exploring!

The café’s warm and welcoming atmosphere, coupled with delightful prices, makes it a great spot to relax and enjoy a leisurely brunch.

Last but not least, we have MOK Specialty Coffee in the vibrant Sainte-Catherine area. This café is a haven for coffee lovers, but their matcha offerings are just as impressive. Their vegan food options, ranging from hearty bowls to delectable pastries, are a delight for the taste buds. The café’s minimalist décor and relaxed ambiance make it a great spot to chill and enjoy.

  1. Encré. Café.

Nestled on the quaint Rue des Chartreux, just around the corner from MOK Speciality Coffee, Encré. Café. emerges as a sanctuary for coffee aficionados and those seeking solace in a cup of perfectly brewed matcha. This charming spot distinguishes itself not just through its prime location at number 17, but through the artistry and passion infused into every beverage it serves.
