We visited this place on the pretence of board games and a good selection of beer. What we found was a complete lack of board game and paying customers. We requested a game of pool (due to the non-existent games) to which we were told...More

Was out with some friends on a Saturday night at Café Kafka. Awesome atmosphere and good music! The prices of the drinks are also quite reasonable.

This is a nice comfortable bar located in a fairly popular area of Brussels, about 10-15 beers on draft and a selection of bottles beers and spirits as well. Definitely worth a visit if you're nearby

Cafe Kafka is certainly the best traditional belgian pub in Brussels. We offer an amazing selection of the finest belgian beers, as long as a wide range of high quality drinks. But the legendary cafe kafka is not just about the best beers in the world. It's also about a warm atmosphere. About meeting people from all walks of life. About the music. About the concerts. Welcome home. Welcome to Kafka.
