Whenever you’re feeling hungry and you want to escape from the rush of the shopping streets of Antwerp, just go to the right spot in the middle of the historical city centre. This bar-restaurant will serve all your needs.

Location


At the Vrijdagmarkt (Fridaymarket) you’ll be overwhelmed by history and tranquillity. In the shadow of the Unesco-listed Museum “Plantin & Moretus” people can enjoy a simple beer*, a glass of calva or a good coffee. One of the nicest squares of the city is a well kept secret for many people. If you’re lucky and you visit the square on a Friday morning, you will be treated to a cozy open air auction. Only the real Antwerp citizens are present for this over four hundred year old tradition.

Best sandwich


Although they don’t have an expensive menu, the food they serve is delicious. I adore the sandwich with roast beef, it’s a slice of bread covered with oil & pesto, grilled on a hot plate with a salad of pure freshness. Even when I’m not feeling hungry but the menu is nearby, I always give in to temptation. It’s a party in your mouth, I say.



Mon-Sun open from 11am-1am (only Friday open from 8am).

Tanguy, 32 PERSONAL SHOPPER

Antwerp has no secrets for me: designer shops, fashion design and custom-tailoring workshops, pastry shops you can't afford to miss, small, quaint hotels off the main tourist routes, cultural book shops and wine bars... You'll love to come back. Promise! My little extra: fashion!
