Peck47, owned by the same Irish guys who run Bia Mara, is a place screaming attention to detail! @Peck47 @BiaMara #Brussels #BxLove

I was just roaming around my favorite part of Brussels (the center of course!) and right after walking past Bia Mara, I noticed this nice little coffee shop, Peck47. My friend Antigoni and I decided to try it and she went admittedly gung-ho about it. And rightly so, as Peck47 is actually owned by the Irish crew of nearby Bia Mara and the place screams attention to detail.
What to eat
I personally had a scrumptious Italian sandwich with pecorino and salami, coupled with a side salad of fresh roquette and pine nuts topped with balsamic vinegar sauce. Antigoni had the egg, bacon and spinach on whole wheat sandwich which she confirmed was absolutely delicious. Well, I wasn’t expecting anything less than utter quality all things related to Peck47 knowing how much the owners value fresh products and nicely presented dishes.
What to drink
I paired my lunch with a jar of my favorite Pimm’s which is served the English way at Peck47: 1 part Pimm’s, 3 parts lemonade, 1 slice orange, 1 slice lemon, 2 slices cucumber and mint. Antigoni took her favorite Spritz, the art of making of which, Peck47 also seems to master. It’s a great place if you love drinking tea as there’s a separate tea menu featuring a wide range of choice such as the Mademoiselle tea which is made of red berries, sour apple, pear and rose petals.

All Eyes On You
Shop these 8 must-have quirky eye-print pieces!
Semi-surreal and magically eery, one of our favorite motifs last season is the all-seeing eye. The trend took off last year, when Kenzo debuted their instantly popular ‘evil eye’-focused fall collection. Visually striking and subtle eye prints have since been spotted all over the streets during the last two fashion weeks. For spring, Mara Hoffman showed a colorful and bohemian take on the trend, which just proves that when it comes to interpreting the ominous icon, sometimes there’s more than meets the eye. From understated dainty earrings to a fun and flashy sweatshirt, shop our selection of the coolest eye-catching pieces below.
What’s your favorite eye print piece from the list? Let us know!

ModCup Coffee, a small batch roaster in Jersey City, with a cafe in Jersey City Heights, gives you hope for the future of specialty coffee. These guys have a lot of passion, zero pretension, a quirky little shop with lots of tchotchkes that give it a theme and personality, and a willingness and desire to experiment. Try their cold brew flight - well worth the $6 - which includes a nitro brew, a Toddy brew, and a Japanese slow drip.
Lovely bike shot. One if the many antique shops of Marolles, Brussels. And my hair bun.
