After falling in love with Liège, Antwerp-based chef Stéphanie Wouters (June’s) left everything behind to set up shop opposite the Parc d’Avroy (where you can share your sandwich with the geese when the weather is nice), in a corner canteen with windowed walls, ultra-clean decor and multiple shades of gray. From breakfast to afternoon tea, she pampers early birds and late risers alike with homemade granola, eggs with homemade smoked bacon, local cheeses, mouthwatering sandwiches (pork roulade, salad, caramelized onion jam and tarragon mayonnaise or gravlax, fennel salad and smoked beet mayonnaise), and delicate small plates. That particular day: juicy mussels, creamy pea soup with chorizo and snow peas; quail with wild garlic, chicory, potatoes and an addictive stout sauce; and a light and airy chocolate cake with blood orange and kumquat. There’s a veggie option too: smoked portobello burger and smoked beetroot tartare… And everything is available to take away. // Heloise Bartsoen
