With all the ‘coffee shops slash something else’, I bumped into an ‘interior design store slash homemade pie and have a drink’ place. At the very end of the Burgstraat, Le Petit Cirque is a little hidden gem only a two minute walk away from the center.
You walk into a large living room with dinner tables, cupboards and cute little gifts and you can take a seat. There are three different rooms, all with a different vibe. You can just look around and go on a little treasure hunt among the secondhand paraphernalia, or you can just sit back, relax and try the homemade pie.
They have a limited list of drinks and besides pie all you can get is a croissant. So if you want to come in and have brunch, this is not the place to be. If you are outgoing and want to have a chat, the owners are very welcoming and enthusiastic about everything. If you are looking for a special gift, I am sure they can help you out. And for now I believe, the crowd has not yet discovered this place, so I suggest you do not linger.
