I am an only child (do not worry: my childhood years were not that traumatic). But if I had had brothers and/or sisters, I kinda would have liked to open a café with them. Finding an appropriate name would have been easy.
Les 3 frères (French for ‘the 3 brothers’) is a family business that opened up about a year ago. It is run by three brothers and some extra staff. I always come here for a rehydrating after-beer after I’ve been climbing (check the Itinéraires AMO article).
The atmosphere of the cafe always reminds me of a cosy Christmas day as a child at grandma’s and grandpa’s with the entire family (I’m an only child, but I do have 12 aunts, 14 uncles and 37 cousins on my mother’s side).
The floor is a lovely old mosaic pattern. Hundreds of white lights decorate the walls and window. You can eat a traditional Belgian meal. You can play one of the many parlor games present. Or you can have cake. I’m not really a cake fanatic, but my girlfriend almost melted when she had the 3 Frères brownie.
Do you find it too dull inside with all those grown-up conversations and activities? Then you can just go and play basketball or soccer on the big Louis Morichar public square in front of the bar, while the elders keep an eye on you.
