The new hot spot for families in the Sainte-Catherine area is an ice cream parlour… meet Gaston !
Comus & Gasterea, with its oh so tasty artisanal ice-creams and legendary gruff owner, used to be my favorite spot for an ice cream in Brussels. It had been closed for several months and the (long-awaited) first sunny days welcomed its colourful follower.
Gaston can’t be missed with its pleasant terrace where you can quietly enjoy a cappuccino in the morning sun or share an ice cream with the kids and the merry band of children invading the place after school… !
The ice-creams are a bit pricey (2,2€ for one ball) but very tasty. They are artisanal, with some original flavours (I am already a fan of the yoghurt-honey-lemon) and made in-house in the open kitchen, just as several home made pastries.
Because families will be welcome in Gaston’s warm interior on less sunny days too, for a piece of cake or a waffle!
