Brussels, forgive me for having cheated on you with more exotic destinations. But I still think you’re pretty.

The weather is so nice today. Why wouldn't you enjoy it to explore this beautiful but little known area of Anderlecht? (And yes, they have outdoor terraces that serve cool beers too!)

Because I like saving the best for last, here is my favourite street of the historical center of Anderlecht. The small cobblestone street, the colored houses with lush vegetation and the church tower in the background look so rural they bring to mind a little French village, but this is Brussels!

Walk around the Saint-Guidon church to spot two historical institutions. One is the Erasmus House where the humanist Eramus used to live. The other is the Béguinage, hidden in a small alley behind the church. A 'beguinage' is somewhat similar to a convent, but the inhabitants are more progressive 'beguines' instead of nuns: lay religious women who lived in community without taking vows or retiring from the world. The beguinage of Anderlecht is the smallest (and cutest!) in Belgium.

Hidden in a little corner of 'De Koer' lies this small urban garden. I love this kind of intitiatives where you can grow your own vegetables in the middle of the city while getting to know your neighbors.

Do you have an urban garden close to your place? How was the harvest so far? 🥕🥕🥕

This series of photos is entirely centered on the area around the imposing church of Saint-Guidon, a really nice area to explore! 😉

We arrived in the heat of a dance party for seniors on 'De Koer', the temporary cultural meeting point in Anderlecht. Every Summer, they host musical and cultural events, workshops, movie screenings... and art exhibitions, such as this one featuring 'the sleeping staircase' 😂

Although they're probably not as old as they seem, these buildings in Anderlecht still look really pretty. I also love the statue of the ducks forming a line in kind of a weird way... Any idea what it represents? 😀

From art nouveau to historical small-town cobblestone streets, in Anderlecht you can find both at not even 5 minutes walking from each other.

Schaerbeek and Sint-Gilles are not the only hubs of art nouveau buildings. Also in Anderlecht you can find some pretty jewels.

Monday is always a special day at Chaff. On this day, you cannot order à la carte, but you get great burgers for only 6 euros. I'm not a meat-eater, but the quality of the burgers is so good I almost ordered a second one. And that is not all. Every Monday, the downstairs restaurant area transforms into an intimate concert venue. The band is different every week, but it is always alternative music. When I visited, a three-headed band from Paris played some heavy punk music. It goes without saying that the audience was completely different from Sunday mornings.

Le Chaff has many different identities depending on when you go. On a Friday morning you might want to sip your coffee on their outdoor terrace after strolling on the flea market. (You'll notice that's also where the decoration comes from.) On Saturday evening you can take your date there for dinner. On Sunday morning you're welcome for brunch. And on Monday evening, it's the place to be for burgers and alternative concerts.

At first, I only knew Le Chaff as a quiet, cosy spot for a drink after strolling on the Sunday morning flea market. But recently, when I returned on a Monday evening, I discovered a completely different side to Le Chaff. The quiet coffee bar that I knew was not so quiet anymore...
