Léopold Café Presse

Entering this coffee shop gives you a very local school vibe. This place is perfect to find an inspiring place to work or study with a group of friends or by yourself. The coffee shop looks like an ordinary modern bar, but the interior hides a delicious secret. When you enter, you will see that the place is divided into several sections where the decorations are different – there are bicycles wheels hung from the ceiling, you can also find seats for one to more persons, so it is very spacious, they are even headphones on some tables for you to use it.

The difference with other bars is that this is a Belgian kind of coffee shop – there are decorations and books of Belgian characters/cartoons for example: smurf, tintin, etc. Besides serving food and drinks, they also have a small shop where they sell books or comics and souvenirs. It is located a bit further away from the centre, so it is not so busy during weekends. Although it is a bit busy during the week because it is a well-known student coffee shop.
