You know I love biking with the kids in the city.
When Tandem, the pop up kids-friendly Bike Café gave it another go, I was eager to discover their new location, close to Tour & Taxis.
Simple and cool : a combination of bar, bicycle workshop and bike accessories store, where bikes and families are welcome.
Céline & Florent, the young couple behind the project, tested it for the first time last summer in the Orangerie of the Jean-Félix Hap Park in Etterbeek. In view of its success, they decided to try it another time and found again a pretty cool location : the Centre Communautaire Maritime in Molenbeek.
Tandem invades the Centre’s cafeteria and backyard until 14th July and makes it a bright yet cosy meeting place for bike lovers, bunches of friends and families.
Open from Wednesday to Sunday, it proposes every day bike related animations like the Bibliocyclette who reads stories to the children, bakfiets testing, wine tasting (with the Viniporteur of course !)… but you can simply grab a bite or have one of the local beers on the menu.
On Saturday and Sunday, it’s brunch time !
A fresh and tasty buffet with lots of home made meals (don’t miss Céline’s eggs in a bacon cup nor the chocolate and cherry cake).
Emma who is such a fussy eater emptied her plate 3 times (chuuuuut…. !) and we totally enjoyed our quiet brunch on the terrace overlooking the courtyard where the kids play and… bike (what else).
Work & Shop
At the workshop, mechanics help you repair your bike or you can just use their equipment to do it on your own.
In the shop you’ll find bike related items like T-shirts, books, gadgets and magazines.
I definitely recommend you to discover this new place to be… with or without kids !

Céline and Florent live in The Marolles with their 2 children. They accepted to answer a few questions about Tandem and the life with kids in the city.
