"Layover" in Brussels

If we take the train from Amsterdam to London, it looks like we will have a little under 2 hours between trains in Brussels. We get in at 17:42 and leave at 18:59.

I realize we need to check in for the Eurostar 30 minutes before departure, so my question is, is it worth wandering into Brussels for an hour or so? Is there anything to do in the vicinity of the train station (coffee? a waffle? a good beer?).

Brussels´s main tourist sites sit around Centraal Station, which isn´t quite within walking distance of Brussel Zuid. But, you can take the Metro easily enough.
