I have always wanted to try the little Brasserie on the bottom end of Place du Grand Sablon – Café Leffe. Somehow it always has seemed appealing, or lets say: more appealing than lots of the posh places on Sablon and also more inviting than the more dingy bars down Rue de Rollebeek (the street linking you to Blvd. de l’Empereur.) The other night we wandered past on our way back from a meal in town. Perfect for little night-cap. (Can you call a beer a night-cap?)
This place is nothing special, but they do have a reasonable assortment of Belgian Beers on offer. You will find classics such as Hoegaarden Grand Cru, Westmalle Dubel and Trippel, Rochefort 8… at reasonable prices. Its a nice place to sit and watch people wonder by. They even do food here, but I wouldn’t recommend it.
This place is set inbetween chocolate shops – you will find your mouth watering, after drinking that beer while staring at the Pierre Marcolini shop window!
