Comptoir Rodin is a beautiful spot not far from Flagey. A small bronze replica of Rodin’s The Thinker welcomes visitors to this hidden canteen, which was once a military hospital.

Refurbished with sleek concrete floors, bare brick walls and mismatched furniture, the atmosphere is a happy equation of cosiness and design. The perfect place for a quiet afternoon in the sunny verandah or for a light lunch, worth musing over.

Open from breakfast till after tea time, you can come for a coffee and a sweet or go for their wholesome soups and bowls. Comfort and healthy dishes featuring meatballs, perfectly cooked veggies and yummy “tartines” (toasts). Try the aubergine toast for a veggie delicious meal.

 

Comptoir Rodin, Ave Auguste Rodin 8. T: +32 2 203 00 14 Open: 7.30am-6pm Mon-Fri, 10.30am-5pm Sat & Sun
