The first time I went to this bar, it had not yet appeared in the Tim Webb book, and was known as St. Tropez. I found it in a list of one of the 400 Cafe Books by Bob Hendrikxx,and was very happy for my discovery. An attractive bar with an excellent selection, though they are light on lambics. Very impressive looking with brick walls, wooden tables, and a fireplace. Also an covered outdoor terrace. Peanuts served as snack. They have many old bottles as decoration. The hosts are quite friendly and knowledgeable about the beer. They have live music at times as well.

I checked this college area cafe with the Salty Dog back in 2001.
It used to be called Saint Tropez. Salty told me about when they used have a live Boogie Woogie piano player there to entertain.
A great looking old 3-room "wood" place with an indoor/outdoor space + plenty of surrounding beer paraphernalia.
The folks that run the place, are quite friendly, and have a broad array of both local and Trappist biers, as well as cheeses from Orval. Westmalle on draft + various vintage-aged Orvals to try side-by-side. It's a fun spot to hang out, and watch all the school kids sit around and drink Coca Cola (with a straw no less).
Last time there I sampled: 3 month old Orval, Het Kapitel Abt, & Fantome (They called it Spookbier) Saison.
