There’s a cornucopia of 450 beers and rare gueuzes (lambic beer), as well as jenevers (gins) and liqueurs flavoured with elderflower, cranberries and cherries. Ask the shop owner if you can try her home-brewed silky smooth jenever, made with real chocolate. The two pianos are there for shoppers to play; an open fire in winter adds to the cosy vibe.

The adjoining chocolate shop is run by the owner's husband.
