Small bar, inside the Leuven museum. Run by a guy that’s very passionate about his beer selection, I like that. Bottle selection with the usual Belgians and guest list with some more interesting international beers. Nice place.

bartlebier  (102) Belchium im Biersgau, Germany | February 27, 2015
Visited V and IX/2015. The chilly/stylish modern museum resto atmosphere does not immediately betray the beer menu behind its counter, only a blackboard hinting at the rotating local draughts and import bottles on offer, while the official website quoted here is down, replaced by a spartan Facebook page: yes, this typical Belgian technique of auto-obscurification cannot hide the obvious quality of this place, well-known among locals and their outstandingly catered selection. Good service. Rotating UK selection: this was the place I first got hold of The Kernel’s Oak Aged Biere de Table at a fair price. Always worth dropping in, as it offers more surprises than the 2000+ Belgian-only beer behemoth a few streets further into the centre.

Modern, clean, minimalist specialty beer bar attached to the M Museum Leuven. Fresh Taras Boulba bottles and stemware for the win. Friendly and welcoming staff. Owner is passionate about beer but need to learn NOT TO SWIRL YEAST into my glass, thank you!

Nice & well managed bar with a continuously varying selection of commercial and craft beers. Growing interest for geuzes as well. Been there a few times, easily top 3 of the Leuven bars.

Very nice bar inside museum M in Leuven. A lot of local beers of Vlaams-Brabant. Very friendly staff. The food is also local and very good. Worth a visit if you are in Leuven. The beerlist is also dynamic, so every time you visit they have new specialities! From now on they also have a guest list with always very good craft beer (Mikkeller, Brewdog, Beavertown, ...)

Being the "official" café of Leuven’s M Museum, the atmosphere at the M Café is appropriately stylish and relaxed. The café caters to the general audience, and most people come here to have a quiet lunch and/or coffee. The food, by the way, is solid, as you would expect from a decent Belgian brasserie. (I’ve heard the cook pays special attention to beer and food pairing, but I haven’t yet had the pleasure.) Where M Café surpasses your run-of-the-mill brasserie, though, is in its beer list. There’s a nice selection of good beers in all Belgian styles, with a focus on local brews. They also switch it up regularly. If you come at the right time, and if you pull the right strings, you might even get access to the secret cache of beers they reserve for the inner circle. This cache changes every month, and it’s empty quick, but it contains some pretty impressive beers, mostly of the more expensive and exclusive kind. Think Mikkeler, Emelisse, Struise, etc. The servers know their stuff, which is refreshing. All in all, M Café may not be your typical beer bar, but it is a place you can take your family to and enjoy a solid beer yourself.

Nice, modern place with decent service and an interesting menu that has a few surprises. Better than your typical cafe for sure, but not up there with a specialist beer bar. Food looked good, but I never got a chance to go back for lunch.

Visited the place at the Zythos weekend. Modern bar with much Flemish-Brabant beers. Nice service and they know what they served.
