De Brakke Grond café is a unique place, where the Flemish concept of 'goesting' (gusto) comes to life. It's a cultural home-from-home for artists using the arts centre, visitors to the Nes, tourists and locals. A place where you can check your email on your laptop or play a game with your friends. In the evenings, you can enjoy a sumptuous Flemish meal with your family, or drink a genuine Belgian beer. You are guaranteed to find something that takes your fancy at any time of the day: how about a frothy cappuccino or a good strong coffee with home-made cake to kick-start the morning, or a croque bruxellois as an afternoon treat? All prepared and served with love and attention to detail. Bon appétit!
