Whenever I have a walk in Bois de la Cambre in Brussels, I always stop at open-air cafe "Le Kiosque" for a coffee or warm chocolate! Makes lockdown easier!

One reason why I really enjoy living in Brussels is the opening in recent years of several guingettes - the French word for open-air cafés - located in the main parks of Brussels. Most of them are open during the summer season only, but I know one guinguette that stays open all-year-round, this is Le Kiosque based in the heart of park Bois de la Cambre.

So, when I have a walk in Bois de la Cambre close to my home I always stop at Le Kiosque for a coffee or warm chocolate. I love its chalet-like look and the nice fairy lights all around that transmit a cosy feeling, especially when the day is getting shorter or in winter. During Covid-restrictions I would take a drink away from Le Kiosque and just stand very close to the café to listen to some nice music played non-stop. I must admit that without Le Kiosque, lockdown would have been much harder for me!

What I also appreciate at Le Kiosque is their comfortable outdoor tables where families or friends can hang out and spend some good time together. The food offer is rather limited and includes different sorts of sandwiches, soups and cakes but the quality is quite good and efforts are made to give priority to seasonal and local produce.

Le Kiosque is an ideal place for a well-deserved break after a walk through nature or to meet up with friends during the weekends.
