We visited Café In De Wolken Thursday 11th March 2016, This Café is a modern looking place, it is situated at about 2 o’clock if you used the Grote Markt as being central and it is close by two large churches on Begijnhofstraat.

Inside as already mentioned it has a very modern appearance, it is a long rectangular bar with much of the tables and seating at the front, the bar starts about half way along with a few stools and regulars propping it up on our visit. One wall near the front has a great display of old records sleeves illustrating the owners passion for Blues, Jazz and Folk music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. There were some great record sleeves and along with the more familiar Bob Dylan (The Times They are a Changing), Leadbelly, Tom Rush, Spider Blues, Bert Jansch also featured. As you might expect the music in here was well chosen with Goin to Chicago by Clarence Gatemouth Brown, That Ol’ Feeling by Pee Wee Russell and lots of other corkers. We chatted to the landlord who said he used to visit London back in the sixties to buy his records.

The beer choice was very good, ok so it was not such a singing or dancing selection as Gainsbar, but it must have run to 80-100 with a nice range of styles, I managed to bag a new rate without to much difficulty. This place is all about sitting back relaxing and a listening to some nice music, we really liked it here.

Gezellig, niet te druk. Geen te grote selectie bier, maar wel een goeie! Bijna altijd aangename muziek waarbij men nog kan praten zoals: jazz, blues, fado...

Nice atmosphere, very friendly owners. Visited on a Wednesday and it was surprisingly crowded. Small but well chosen beer list. Some commercial but mostly craft beers. Good value. We had Valeir Extra, Belle Fleur and Cuvée Jeune Homme. No hard to find gems but who cares? It’s worth a visit.

Really nice place, comfortable. Prices are ok and the staff are friendly. Not so many taps but the bottle selection is well chosen. Was also surprised with some of their specials that they had on a blackboard on the way in. Well worth a visit, when in Kortrijk. We went from Gainsbar to here and both places were great in different ways.

Visited October 2013. Opened two years ago, this is a modern cafe near the Begijnhof about two minutes walk from the Grote Markt. It is rather small and cozy and the background music is very good. The beer menu contains 8 lambics and a good range of beer from small producers like locals Toye and Eutropius. De Koninck and Bockor Pils on draught. No food except snacks.
