Rodin Counter

What immediately impresses at Comptoir Rodin is the building that houses it, namely the Rodin Pavilion, the only vestige of the former military hospital in Brussels. The facade is imposing and magnificent, with huge windows that let in the light. The interior space is divided into several parts and, to work, we particularly like the main part of the café with its pretty wooden furniture but also sofas and armchairs, coffee tables and a wood stove to heat the place up. with (very) high ceilings!

On the menu? During the week, you can enjoy sandwiches, soups, daily specials, snacks… We strongly recommend the chicken-mayonnaise sandwich with wasabi, to die for.
