A small cafe that I'd read about on BA. Very clean, contemporary feel. Not at all what you'll get in the two other Belgian bars in town. Narrow space with a short bar seating maybe six. Roughly a dozen or so Belgian bottles and a mix of about six Belgian and micro taps. Their focus is clearly on minimal stocks of quality beer and cheese. No other food to be had here. Very much a niche bar that could only survive in an upscale area in a big city like Philly. Go there with deep pockets. Nice spot if you've got the time before dinner for a few drinks. Very efficient and friendly service. Nice Itlain meat/cheese combo. Can't precisely recall what type of meat and cheese I tried, but both tasted great. A tad too trendy and 20-something-yuppie for my taste, but still worth a visit and perhaps a repeat visit for me.

Little trendy-type bar/restaurant that had some nice beer options. Actual location had some outdoor seating and about 12 tables and some bar seats. Not a ton of room if all of the tables are occupied, but pretty similar to a lot of other downtown options. Beer list had about 8 taps and a pretty diverse bottle list. Wife got a 17oz RuinTen for $6. Needless to say, that seemed to be the go to option for a lot of the beer drinkers there that night. Staff seemed knowledgable about the beer offerings and made some nice suggestions. Unfortunately we did not get to try any food, but we were watching some plates get prepared and it looked pretty appetizing.
