This Cafè is really nice from many point of view. First of all, the location: it is situated in the city center in a cool square. Also the food (traditional belgian food) and beers are really good. The place is cozy, quiet, and cheap. Recommended.

A perfect refuge from the busy flea market near by, this cafe had welcoming staff and a good selection of beers. Although we didn't order food, the open kitchen looked clean and smelled amazing. I'd definitely eat there. Free wifi to boot too! ... code...More
