A la Bécasse café

by Vincent

la Bécasse which first opened in 1877 is another typical cosy old style tavern of Brussels with its interior gorgeously all made out of wood. Once seated friendly waiters dressed in their traditional monastic style costume made of black and white will promptly bring you the impressive beer menu. They are renowned for their Lambic beer which you should join with one of their plates of cheese and sausages. Located at 11 Rue de Tabora just next to the Bourse.

Be on the lookout for that “A la Bécasse” neon sign

Tucked away down a narrow alley street you will find its entrance.

This looks like a great place to visit; maybe, some day, if I'm lucky and get to visit Brussels, I too will visit this charming establishment.

Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

A very impossible place. In the middle of the tourist streets of central Brussels, tucked in between fritjes and gauffres is this little hole in the wall that leads in to a narrow alley that ends with a door….. it's almost Harry Potterish.

Think I'll go there for a lambic today after work. Feel sorry for all you people in Sydney, Hongkong, Rio and Tulsa that can't join me.
