Yuka Espresso Bar Brussels – Artisanal espresso bar

"Yuka Espresso Bar" Brussels is an artisanal espresso bar in a small, minimalistic spot that makes a good coffee, with delicious cakes and fresh fruit...

There are big plans afoot for Boulevard Anspach in the city centre. Although modelled after Paris in the 19th century, the central boulevards in Brussels eventually become unpleasant, traffic-filled arteries that people used to avoid. Now, though, the city has pedestrianised the street and is embarking on a major transformation, with more trees, green spaces and bike lanes.  

The opening of Yuka espresso bar a few years ago was another sign that change was afoot in this part of town. Yuka helps to fill the niche for good coffee in the centre of Brussels, where there are still only a handful of places that really care about what goes into the cup.

Yuka is quite small, with a paired-down minimalist design that makes it a relaxing place to stop for a quick cup when you're in town. Most importantly, the coffee is good; really good. The owner takes his espresso very seriously and offers a careful selection of blends and single-origin brews. There are also great cakes and fresh fruit juices on offer. It's a perfect place for a quick breakfast, as there are always fresh pastries in the morning to go with your coffee.
