On Sundays, the whole of Brussels’ trendy Ixelles quarter comes out in force to the promenade and peruse the stalls at Place Flagey.

Grab a sunny seat outside one of the square’s cafes to watch children splashing in fountains and people gorging on slices of fresh mango or wandering in and out of bars with paper cones of freshly fried chips from the famous Frit Flagey hut.

For something more sophisticated, join the locals enjoying €2 glasses of bubbly and €1 oysters on their shells while perching on stools by the van they’re sold from. > Place Flagey, Sunday, 7am-1pm
