Cafe Folklore Ghent

Cafe Folklore – Cafe that takes you back in time

The name of this café summarizes the theme of the bar. Café Folklore is a fixture in the Ghent cityscape, already more than 30 years, Jacques welcomes guests into his “home”. One of the only places where you can find a beer for less than 2 euros and can enjoy a portion of ‘Genste Huufdflakke” and know it’s the real deal. On Sundays, they bring out a special treat, which I’ll leave up to you to discover.

The interior on its own is enough to pay a visit: everywhere you look, you’ll find something you have not seen, even if you might think you have seen it all. Be ready to be taken back in time, leave your phone on silent and enjoy a moment of peace in this work of art.

Tip: bring some euro coins since there is an original jukebox from which you can choose 6 songs to play.
