When I studied in Mechelen a few years ago, not a lot was going on. But nowadays new restaurants, coffee bars and pretty shops are opening all over Mechelen & Sister Bean is the latest hotspot in Mechelen. Since they opened their doors in June Sister Bean is making a name for itself as a hip breakfast hotspot, serving up homemade granola, pancakes, homemade jams & delicious bread. On the weekends they offer a brunch buffet with everything a foodie wishes for on the weekend. Inside the décor is cozy, with a lot of wood, a big bar and upstairs a big communal table and a view of the open kitchen.
