Maison Renardy Brussels – Tea house & divine hot chocolates

"Maison Renardy" (est. 1912) in Brussels is one of the ways I fight the winter blues -- this lovely tea/coffee house makes DELICIOUS hot chocolate...

After many years living in Brussels, I learned the importance of finding tricks and activities to fight the grey and rainy winters. Some people take vitamin D, but I prefer to treat myself to a visit at Maison Renardy. This lovely little tea and coffee house located in Matonge is an excellent remedy for winter blues.

Brussels is known for its chocolaty expertise, and Maison Renary is the perfect example. Their hot chocolates are DELICIOUS. You must at least get the 53% cacao, or else you are missing out on the experience (and a fun sugar rush). If you are a true sugar addict (no judgment), enjoy your hot chocolate with one of their amazing cakes. But beware: the hot chocolates also come with a small praline and it’s delicious – you won’t want to sip it. Another alternative would be to order one of their lovely and affordable pots of tea (wide selection), so you can indulge in tranquility. But seriously – try their hot chocolate at least once in your lifetime.

Maison Renardy has been running since 1912 and has an old beginning of the Century feel/charm. I love their round marble tables, the service on a silver tray, and the simplicity of the space. Very feminine, bright, perfect for an afternoon (gallant?) rendezvous, or just one of the best way I found to cheer me up during the dark winter days.
