Tinsel is a small and cosy brunch spot in the south of Antwerp – “a small place with a big heart,” as stated on their website. I couldn’t agree more! Tinsel serves their food with love, as you can tell from the plates, which are a feast for your eyes and from the friendly service. Apart from just a full belly, Tinsel will make you leave with a full heart!
It serves seasonal and homemade dishes, simple and delicious. If you like to eat vegetarian or vegan, you will also find plenty of options. A few of my recommendations are the vegan french toast, the pancakes and the special scrambled eggs with spinach, feta and pumpkin seeds.
Don’t forget to have a look at all the pastries that are displayed on the counter. Vegan bounty, pecan pie, lemon cake. The choice is endless! Not hungry anymore after all that brunching? You can also take a pastry to go.
You can’t book your table upfront, so make sure to go on time during the weekend or just be prepared to wait a bit for a table.
