This place has different hours in the summer and winter. In the summer they are closed on Saturdays. After the hours are fixed I will remove this review, just don’t want anyone to plan on trying it to be disappointed on a Saturday.

I am a brazilian and I visited Tonton in mar/2017. Today Belgium won Brazil in World Cup 2018. The first thing I remembered was how I was received by Tonton. He is a gentleman and represents Belgium as a lord! Congratulations Belgium!

Make this a must while you’re in Brussels! It was one of my favorite stops. Great selection of gourmet cheeses and sandwich options. The owner is really passionate about what he does and he crafts the sandwich with excellence! Highly recommend!

This place is so much more than a sandwich shop. We left feeling as though we'd been through an experience and lesson on how to live your life. The man making the sandwiches was the most caring, loving and passionate sandwich maker I've ever seen....More
