If you love sweets as much as I do, then Brussels is the place for you! If you stay anywhere near the center of the city near Grand Place, you will find an abundance of shops selling chocolate and waffles. One of the more well known chocolate shops is Godiva which was founded by a Belgian family. Be sure to pick up a few sweets during your stay. And I think everyone has heard of Belgian Waffles. There are many shops selling waffles for 1 or 2 Euros, and you can add toppings to them. These waffles are delicious - we ate one every day! I recommend getting a waffle with speculoos ice cream.
