Dropped by unexpectedly. Food was original and not bad. Service and staff were really nice. Crowd was more 20-30s on a Sunday afternoon - no kids. will return.

What a lovely find! Great beers, great vibe and super staff who were so willing to engage and chat about their beers and offer suggestions wherever they could! Highly recommend this spot for any craft enthusiasts who want to avoid the easy to find tourist...traps in Brussels.More

Tried this place as it was close to our hotel, really cool little venue with exposed brick walls. The staff were friendly and they stock mostly local beers that you don’t find elsewhere both on tap and bottles

Little pub, of the type university students no doubts enjoy very much, with fine local brewery beers and ales, and organic appetizers. If you're looking for a place to chill out, this is where you want to go - especially the outdoor patio in the...back. Enjoy!More

Popped into this gem for lunch and was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it is! Very earth conscious, serving organic food and drinks with metal straws! Very friendly staff. We’ll be back :)

I found this place for its sustainable and eco friendly philosophy and amazing selection of Belgian craft beers! However I was extremely impressed by their food as well! Immaculate presented and delicious flavours, this cafe has it all! And the staff are warm and friendly...and will tell you in detail about the beer in French and English!More

Lovely place and very nice and flexible staff (rather rare around here ;) ). Went there for brunch with a friend and the salty veg waffle was quite nice. The polenta fries need some sauce though (and could be a slightly more generous portion) and...the Creme brulée tastes more like egg than anything else. but the fruit crumble looks pretty good. Next time... ;)More

This not easy to spot restaurant and bar at the place Fernand Coq hides a small patio inside and a quite interesting choice for food and beers. Vegetarian and vegan will certainly find something to grab. Food is mostly local and organic and that certainly...makes a difference. Nothing really fancy but fresh and different. Menu with daily specials! For me also one of the most original Beers selections around Brussels with weekly and monthly specials. Don't hesitate to ask the waiters. Is a pitty that only has a small counter and tables. But drop in if you're around is worth it if only for a special beer and different tapa'sMore
