This cafe is in a great location on the edge of the city, near the canal.. It has a great vibration, friendly staff and the beer is good (and less expensive). The food looked good and it was busy serving lots of happy customers -...More

Went there on Sunday evening with some friends for dinner and a drink. Very nice typical Belgium bar atmosphere. Relaxed and chilled out. Food was OK, not amazing.
