Rode a bike from Poperinge to the cafe and got there shortly after they opened on a Saturday. Itís a modern looking cafe across the street from the abbey. I had one of each beer and actually enjoyed the blond the most. By the time I left, it was getting pretty crowded. I had the croque monsieur, which was ok. While you can get westy in other places in Belgium, this was quite an experience.

July 2015. Nest to the famous abbey, in the middle of nowhere. Pleasant place to taste this beers in the countryside even if some smokers can spoil this dreamy moment. Average service. Westvleteren Blond well appreciated after a 2 hours walk around the abbey.

Nice place. Service: Okay (it was a busy day of course).
We had the chance ot 1. drink some Westvleteren and 2. buy Westvleteren Blonde and Westvleteren 8 (after some waiting time). So for us the visit was good.
Food: Small selection but very good quality.

Nice and clean with a quick service. Of course the variety is almost none in food and beer but the idea is to have their Trappists. Nice place to have a light lunch, kids friendly with pleasant service and normal belgian prices. I usually buy cheese ( outstanding) and the abdij pate in the shop. And sometimes beer...

Stopped by while staying at the B&B at St. Bernardus and sat on the patio. Food is what to be expected, but where else can you sit outside and drink Westvleteren close to the Monastery? Service was fast and good and price was decent. Beer to go was already sold out by the time we got there.

Big cafeteria, in the typical Flemish ícyclistí style (i.e. more of a canteen to stop and have a nice refreshing beer). Had a Westvleteren Blond on the terrace, overlooking the corn fields of Vleteren. Lovely view. Unfortunately, no beers were in stock in the small shop inside the bar.

The only place that I know of where you can find Westvleteren on tap. They occasionaly have bottles to go as well, but that only seems to happen a few times a year. Prices are decent and the food is basic but good. Everyone should visit here once.

Big modern cafetaria with possibility to buy cheese, marmelade and so on and if youíre lucky some beer (biggest change of finding the blonde). All the beers can be drunk on site, with a cheese sandwich amongst others. Prices for the drinks are decent, but the food is more expensive. Although there as a big crowd, the waitors didnít seem to be in a rush. The location is quite nice, giving the quiet rural environment. A decent place to stop by when cycling in the neighborhood, but donít expect it to very special.
