Visited October 2012.
After a string of unsuccessful stops around the oost/westvleteren area we stopped here looking for something to eat. The problem was, of course, that outside of tourist season NOTHING is open during the week outside of an hour for lunch and another hour or two for dinner. I donít remember what we actually ate (aside from the cup of soup that I had) but we probably ended up settling for some crappy halal food. They did have cake which in retrospect I should have tried. They have an interesting bottle list of some things that you donít normally see, mostly local stuff. What I ordered wasnít bad which was the hommel bier which seemed fitting considering where we were and that we had just come from the hop museum. Service was decent considering this is Belgium. Not sure Iíd journey across Belgium to get here but since at some point Iíll undoubtedly be back in the area (still have to visit de Dolle and Rodenbach after all) Iíll probably stop in for a beer on the way to/from St Bernardus to load up on more schwag.

Went here because it was literally one of the only places open in the city. Small draft list with a half decent selection of bottles. Not really worth going to on its own, but it may be your only option depending on when youíre in town.

UPDATE 04/09/12: now run by a local hop farmer and after a dodgy transitional stage is back on form with an improved beer selection featuring De Dolle & Struise. No sign of food other than basic snacks.
