Café Livresse – Books, beers or both

At Café Livresse you can easily spend a whole day from dawn ’til dusk. I really like to hang out here during the day, drink a coffee or an apéro, work on some stuff for work, read the newspaper or a book, have an apéro. The cool thing: you can actually directly buy the book at this chill place. Café Livresse is a coffee shop and a bookstore at the same time with a specialized selection of LGBT themed books but also other genres. You can also order books – picking them up gives you a good excuse to spend some time here.

The interior – just like Livresse’s customers – is pleasantly laid-back and makes it a cozy place. In the evening, Livresse turns into a cool bar with a nice selection of local, special beers (try the ginger beer!) and wines for a decent price. I also really like the music they play. On hot summer days and nights, I recommend sitting outside on the terrace, which is located on a small, car-free street.
