MOK Coffee | Brussels

I rarely go to Brussels, so when I had to visit the U.S. embassy a couple of weeks ago, I asked my cousin where I should go for brunch. She told me I could get some tasty coffee and vegan snacks at a little place called MOK, so I was sold. It was a bit out of the way, but thankfully it was 100% worth it.

MOK is located at the very end of Rue Antoine Dansaert, which is a street with stylish boutiques and cute restaurants. The cafĂ© is very simple and can be recognised by the cool logo on the window.

Since all the seats at the front were taken, I took a seat in the white kitchen area in the back. I was here on a Monday, but apparently, weekends are super duper busy, so you either need patience or come here on a weekday.

The food and drinks menus are pretty condensed, but they have everything you could possibly need for a tasty breakfast/brunch/lunch. All the food is vegan but they've really tried their best to make it interesting for everyone.

I ordered a flat white with oat milk. Unfortunately, I didn't really like the oat milk they used and the barista also told me they usually use Oatly but they had ran out. Still it was a pretty decent coffee, but it would have been better with the right milk!

My food was more of a success, I ordered a huge avocado toast on sourdough. Oh man this is probably one of the best avo toasts I've ever had. With the simplest of recipes, the quality of the ingredients is very important. The recipe: fresh sourdough bread, ripe avocado, good quality olive oil, a squeeze of lime, Gomasio, black and white sesame seeds, chilli flakes and thinly cut chives.

If you love good coffee, avocado toast and other healthy vegan snacks, then MOK is a place for you. There's a really nice relaxed vibe here, and lots of people came here to have a coffee or some food by themselves while reading the newspaper or working on their laptop.  I bought some coffee beans for my Bialetti at home and it's really really tasty (I took the Rich Kid Blend, you can also order online). Love this place!
