"Money can’t buy happiness but it can buy ice cream and that’s almost the same thing." This motto is painted across the wall of the Capoue artisanal ice cream shop on Place St. Josse. They are right. Ice cream here does equate to happiness.
Capoue is a Brussels institution, and you can find the bright airy shops dotted around the city. They serve a variety of gelato and sorbet to take away, with flavours ranging from all manner of fruits to Belgian chocolaty concoctions.
Eat in and you can take your ice cream upscale, with the addition of crepes, waffles and a wide variety of toppings.
Not always on the menu, but a heavenly treat, is the caramel salé, or salted caramel, gelato. This sweet salty indulgence really proves money can buy happiness after all.
