Imagine the perfect weekend brunch - a delightful platter brimming with a variety of dishes that are both satisfying and generous. Now, picture all of that in a completely vegan version. Sounds like a dream, right? Well, welcome to Chicago Café, a dreamy brunch paradise located right in the heart of Dansaert.
As advocates for vegan food in Brussels, we at Vegan Brussels decided to venture into Chicago Café and try some of their fantastic vegan options. The result? We fell in love with every single dish we tasted!
First up was the Vegan Brunch Plate, a marvelous assortment of high-quality vegan products. Loaded with cashew cheese, tofu scramble, and even vegan bacon by The Vegan Butcher, it was surprisingly plentiful and struck a fantastic balance of flavors. The portion size was generous, making it a solid, satisfying start to the day.
Next on our brunch adventure was the classic Avocado Toast, served with an optional side of vegan bacon. Despite its simplicity, the dish was bursting with flavors. The creamy avocado perfectly complimented the crunchy toast, and the vegan bacon added a smoky, savory note that took it to a whole new level.
We also tried the big Granola and Yoghurt Bowl topped with fresh fruits. It was light and refreshing and made for a perfect palate cleanser after the rich brunch plate and avocado toast.
Accompanying these scrumptious dishes, we enjoyed our specialty coffee with oat milk and a matcha tea with coconut milk (totally matching Alice's newly-painted nails!). There's nothing quite like a warm cup to finish off a hearty brunch, right?
All in all, we absolutely recommend Chicago Café. From its diverse vegan menu to its inviting atmosphere, it's a fantastic spot to enjoy a delightful vegan brunch in Dansaert.
You can find them at Rue de Flandre 45, 1000 Bruxelles.
