Working late? Dancing all night long? Having met this handsome guy and talked to him for hours? Your train was on strike and it took you 3 hours instead of 30 minutes? The meeting was long and your Japanese customers (who never heard about Spotted by locals) asked you for some tips about Brussels? Back in town in the middle of the night after 3 weeks of holiday?
You got the idea… we’ve all faced those situation who find us hungry after the opening hours of any decent shop. And certainly if you want some real bread and not some substitute they’re trying to sell us at the night shop.
Since years now, Au Vatel, a bakery in Etterbeek, had this smart idea to open its atelier while the bakers are busy preparing bread for the next morning. So you’ll be welcome to enter via the General Leman street after the bakery shop (and tea room) closes its door.
I can’t tell it’s the best bread in town, but when it’s 4 o’clock in the morning and you are starving… it sure is!
