Caleo Café Brussels – A "Warm" Brunch in Saint-Boniface

With a cozy interior and a pleasant scent of toasted coffee beans, Caleo offers different options for brunch, from viennoiseries to delicious pancakes.

Sundays are for brunch and catch-ups with friends. Caleo Cafe, a casual neighborhood cafe in the heart of Ixelles is the perfect location for it. Caleo comes from ancient Latin, and it means “warm”. I would have not found a better word to describe the feeling you get when you enter this place.

With a cozy interior, wood furniture, and a pleasant scent of toasted coffee beans, Caleo offers different options for your brunch, from a simple selection of viennoiseries to delicious pancakes, including sweet and savory options. All with seasonal products and homemade by their staff.

If you ask me, the highlight of their menu is the brioches, which also come with a sweet and savory choice. The brioche with creamy mushrooms, crispy bacon, and a poached egg caught my attention, and I did not regret my choice. All complemented with a delicious matcha latte (I’m a huge fan). It definitely gave me a different perspective to start a new work week.

No reservations are allowed (unfortunately), so... wake up and get ready to get there on time to get a spot!
