A l’Imaige Nostre-Dame

by Vincent

Like most well kept secrets A l’Imaige Nostre-Dame is not easy to find and one would need to be really lucky to simply stumble into it. Located at the end of a long and narrow alleyway it is one of the oldest cafés of Brussels. Having a unique and authentic feeling to it, this pub has had the chance to retain its original decor and boats a very friendly atmosphere with its share of regulars, merrymaking students and the occasional tourist.

University students often come to this café and the bartender has been made their honorary Godfather with all the official gear.

I remember having spent very good time in this bar when my wife was spending a one-year postdoctoral period in Louvain-la-Neuve. Some university friends of her invited us to discover this amaizing place. I really enjoyed the Bourgogne de Flandres I drank and the tartines I ate. Great place!
