Foodies of all ages can discover places in Brussels where you can enjoy a sweet break between two visits.
It's time for a sweet break, but your heart is torn between a delicious cupcake, a soft doughnut or a tasty creamy pastry? Well in Brussels, you are spoilt for choice.
Authentic Pasteis de Nata at Forcado
Pastais de Nata have won over many with their delicious puff pastry and cinnamon flavoured cream. And Forcado Pastelaria, a father-son artisanal company, has been transmitting its passion for Portuguese pastries for more than 30 years. A stone's throw from the Horta house in Saint-Gilles - or the Vivier d'Oie in Uccle - they also offer delicious variations flavoured with port, coffee, chocolate or lime.

Cupcakes at Lilicup
Take a tea room with British decor, and add cupcakes and foamy cappuccino, and you get Lilicup. In addition to soft and delicious cupcakes, enjoy a delicious cheesecake or homemade cookies. Try to come before 15:00, as the cupcakes tend to fly off the shelves!
Rue du Page, 65 - 1050 Ixelles
Homemade doughnuts at COCO Donuts
COCO Donuts, a concept from Australia, is the project of two female Brussels entrepreneurs. They have created delicious doughnuts with unusual flavours: maple syrup and bacon, oreos, pistachio, white chocolate, and many others. Manufactured on site, their doughnuts are as pretty as the decoration of COCO Donuts' two locations.

A Freakyshake at So Tasty
If you have a sweet tooth, try the Freakyshake from So Tasty. How about trying the Kesako Freakyshake? It is a giant milkshake with various toppings: Ferrero Rocher, Malteser, Kinder Bueno, sweets or popcorn and many more. It is the ideal sweat break to recharge your batteries while shopping at Docks Bruxsel.
