We stopped in based on BA reviews. This is a great little local place that seems unspoiled by tourist activity. The crowd seemed to be entirely locals. I had a Rochefort 8 and we split a mixed appetizer plate. Both were great. I felt a little out of place not speaking French but it wouldn't stop me from going back. Well worth a visit.

went twice and enjoyed both experiences, they have a Lambic by Timmerans that is only sold in this location from what I understand. Place was next to a waffle shop so a bit hard to find, but right there by Grand Place.

More of an experience as it's the oldest bar in Brussels. Really hard to find since it's hidden in the center of the city. Love the old fashioned attire inside and traditional Belgian fare. Wish the beer selection was better. They seem to focus on Timmerman's lambics.

Stopped by with PurpleCloud on our tour of Belgium and had an enjoyable time at this classic cafe. The feel and look was definitely the real deal. A must visit in Brussels.

Entered via a tiny alleyway. Lively but very manageable and definitely wasn't a tourist trap.

Waitstaff wore traditional garb that was very interesting.

I had Timmermans kriek (8.10 euros) while PurpleCloud ordered gueuze (10.40 euros). We both preferred the gueuze over the kriek.

Both beers were served in traditional ceramic crocks.
