A local institution. Very casual with kids running in to get ice cream and student hanging out on the patio. Service is typical for Belgium, meaning slow and surly. But once you get the servers attention (this can take half an hour) they bring you your beer in under a minute in branded glassware and an amuse bouche paired to the beer you ordered. Bottle list stretches into the triple digits and unlike a lot of places they actually have everything on the list. There isn’t a lot of information about the beers so you either have to know what you want, guess, or ask for the wifi password. They also have a wide selection of crepes with all manner of fillings. Beer prices are quite ok, but food prices are ridiculous given the middling quality and casual setting.

apart from the good selection of belgian beers, the crepes are really good there! However the variety of gueuze is limited what disappointed me a bit.

A great place 200 plus beers. A very interesting food list as well. The prices are much better than Brussels.
A top stop on my beer travels.

The beer list included an impressive range of 75cL bottles, especially Wallonian. This town was founded in the 1960s because of the linguistic divide, and it shows in the beer list: Even the Flemish beer names are translated into French. The only things more impressive than the beer list were the lists of crepes, ice cream sundaes, and imported coffees and teas. This college town itself is somewhat ugly and depressing, IMO, but this cafe makes it worth the visit.
