À la Bécasse information
Hidden almost invisibly down a body-wide alley-tunnel. Long rows of tables give the Bécasse a certain Breugelesque quality though it’s ‘only’ been operating since 1877. The unusual speciality is panaché, a jug of Timmermans lambic mixed with fruit beer or faro to make it more palatable. Not to everyone’s taste.
