The HQ of the Belgian surrealist movement in the 1920s, this quaint bar has managed to maintain its old-world charm. This is the place to be to experience a particularly rare atmosphere rather than to drink yourself into oblivion. Hergé was a frequent visitor of this bar with its illustrious past, where he would come to enjoy a refreshing gueuze. It was also a favourite watering hole for Pierre Alechinsky and Jacques Brel. Today, the café is still a favourite among the artistic and literary crowd. Enjoy one of the Brussels specialities on the menu: pottekeis, kipkap, bloempanch, stoemp-saucisse, ballekes in tomatensaus,... The interior courtyard displays a comic strip fresco by the cartoonists De Marck and De Wulf (Stam et Pilou).
