Very authentic and at sometimes, lively bar. They serve Tripel Karmeliet from the barrel, an absolute must! Not too big, so chances are you'll have to look for a plan B (such as Bar Deco, for example).

Food Scene
Ah yes, food. One of the finer things in life. Eating, chewing, you know how it is right? Sometimes you're out there, in the city... Looking for that special place. You can't put your finger on it though. You know you're hungry, but you want to try something new, something "local people would advise" you. We've got you covered folks.
Their breakfast is like stuff made in heaven. Don't forget to try their blueberry muffins as well.

I'll admit, I'm a bit biased with this one. Mainly because it's right next to my door and my go-to hangover curing place. Very friendly guys, the best kapsalon in town and open late at night.
