Finding the right restaurant in Brussels suitable to make parents and their children happy could be tricky. Luckily the Belgium Capital with over 3,000 restaurants and cafés has great family-friendly venues to enjoy breakfast, lunch, early dinner or a Sunday family brunch. At BabyBreaks, we have researched the best family friendly restaurants in Brussels, including several Sunday brunches, so you can plan your mealtimes around the city.
1. Chez LEON
A first visit to Brussels means you also have to go Chez LEON, of of the most famous brasserie restaurants in Brussels which serves the combination of Mussels and Fries “Moules Frites” in French. Something to note as well is that children under 12 can eat free of charge from the kids menu if they come with their parents or relatives. The menu includes Mussels with Fries or Spaghetti Bolognese or Omelette with Fries or Chicken with Fries + Vanilla Ice Cream or Chocolate Mousse. There is even a pushchair parking facility within the restaurant. What else could you ask for when looking for family friendly restaurants in Brussels?

7. Haricot Magique (Magic Bean)
We wish we could see more places like the Haricot Magique. This coffee shop is great venue to drink excellent coffee or tea whilst your children enjoy nice soft play areas, workshops and more. Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday are busy days so make sure you book a table in advance. In addition, the Haricot Magique has an extensive shop where you can buy kids clothes, wooden toys or baby accessories.

8. Café Novo
If you are looking for an easy restaurant for lunch or dinner, Café Novo is a great venue which serves traditional Belgium dishes like Carbonnade or Vol au Vent but also fish & chips, burgers or sharing platters. To keep the kids busy, there is a selection of books they can borrow during the meal. We also love the décor of the restaurant with wood being the prominent material used in the main room.

CHEZWaWa is a very original place where owners have a great mission to introduce California Mexican style dining to locals and travellers visiting the city of Brussels. So if you and your kids love Burritos, this is the place to go with a very colourful restauraurant that will make some beautiful Insta shots. The venue in Rue Américaine is also serving a Sunday brunch. Make sure you book in advance though. And if you don’t want to get out of bed at your holiday home, you can even get your breakfast delivered with Deliveroo!
