Cook & Book

I think it's obvious why Cook & Book in Brussels was recently named one of The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World. It's beyond a bookstore, beyond a great place to eat and beyond colorful! Cook & Book is comprised of two bookstores or blocs: Bloc A houses Comics, Youth, Travel, Fine Arts and Music while Bloc B features Lifestyle, Literature, Kitchen and English. The concept is cleverly designed libraries with their own unique dining experience. That's nine choices: from travel books around an American Airstream trailer cafe to a great meal at La Cucina with a vintage Fiat 500 parked alongside cookbooks, to the Greenhouse Cafe surrounded by garden and lifestyle books to hundreds of books hanging from the ceiling in the sleek literature section. All this and so much more. Interior architects Delacroix & Friant spared nothing when it came to creating an innovative and fanciful place to eat, read and mingle!


  1. Awesome! Those rooms were very creative. I know which one would be Arturo's favourite!
