I am a real coffee addict and having recently completed training as a “barista”, I have started to look for the best coffee shops in Brussels. This is how I discovered Buddy Buddy, a small coffee shop with a modern design look and nice warm colour shades from orange to ochre. The style is rather minimalist, but the colour combination makes this place very cool and cosy. It is located in a quiet street just behind the Apple Store and the lively shopping area of Toison d’Or. So, it is perfect for a break or simply to relax after a busy day.
But what makes Buddy Buddy so special is their delicious nut butters! They are all home-made with organic and premium ingredients, such as Italian Piedmont hazelnuts, Spanish Valencian almonds and Egyptian peanuts. The nuts are roasted in their own atelier and mixed with first quality ingredients, without adding any palm oil or emulsifiers. I have tasted the hazelnut and almond butters and they are definitively the best I have ever tried. Last Christmas during lockdown I even sent a whole box of nut butter jars to my family!
Buddy Buddy has become one of my favourite places in Brussels to taste a cappuccino or a chai-latte while sitting on the bench outside and looking at people walk along. One day I asked the barista what made their chai-latte taste so special and she told me that they add some nut butter in it, clever!
