Cafe Ernst  Serves food Closed Monday Closed Tuesday New entry in the Guide in 2019

New modern cafe near the riverfront with a good tap list.


Cafe Pardaf  Fred Honorable Mention WiFi available Closed Monday

Improved tap list and an impressive bottle list. Also a great selection of bag-in-the-box lambics.


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


Traditional Antwerp brown cafe that had declined over the years and the closed. Reopened with more focus on beer and getting better with each visit.


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.


Down a small side street and almost unmarked, so look closely. Officially from 8pm but seems sometimes to open sooner.


The Eleventh Commandment: Eat, drink and be merry. Next to the Cathedral. The place is packed with religious statuary. Four house beers and four guests.


Right next to the Cathedral. Belgian bar food (pasta, omelets, croques, etc.)
