Open 11am or earlier

The following are open 11am or earlier on weekdays.


Lovely old multi room pub. Surprisingly good selection of beers, including a variety of Lambics.


Not here so much for it's beer selection but for it's location: right on the Grote Markt. A good place for an early bolleke of De Koninck, especially in nice weather. The name roughly translates to "rascal," "scamp," or "naughty boy" etc.


Corner locals pub behind the cathedral. Nothing special, just a cozy brown cafe.

Classic old pub -- newly renovated and reopened -- across from the De Koninck brewery.


Small corner pub across from Gollem. Additional seating upstairs, which is good because the main room is very small. Decent lambic selection and an interesting bottle list. Food is basically snacks.
