Ok, ladies, gentlemen, lovers of flowers, art, or amazing food, chocolate and beer… (Not that this has anything to do with chocolate and beer, but if you’re going to Brussels, why not get some?) Men… make the wife happy… she gets to see beautiful flowers and you can buy her some chocolates. Women… tempt the men with great beer. Kids will love the Belgian waffles… get them from a stand. The stands and tacky kiosks are almost always better than an expensive restaurant or coffee shop for waffles.
