As if anyone ever needs a reason, today (2 February) presents the perfect opportunity to indulge in crepes: Belgium's Crêpe Day. To make sure you do not miss out on this annual celebration of the crêpe, The Brussels Times has compiled a guide to where to find crepes in Brussels.

The origin story of Pancake Day (also called La Chandeleur or Pannekoekendag) ranges from a religious feast to suspicious farmers celebrating the milder temperatures for their crops (the crêpe looks a bit like the sun in the sky. Or something like that).

Wherever Crêpe Day's true beginnings lie, one thing is certain: A crêpe is a perfect treat on a cold winter's day. You can drown it in chocolate, bury it under strawberries and whipped cream or enjoy it simply with a bit of sugar. It even makes a great savoury snack.

Maison des Crêpes

Maison des Crêpes has a wide range of sweet and savoury crêpes. Open every day until 22:30, it's a great place to go after a hard day at work.
