Another hotspot in the european neighborhood is « OR » ! The interior is pretty rough (?) brute, with brick walls, industrial style with a touch of design (of course, duh). Not speaking french ? No problem ! The very friendly staff here is bilingual 🙂 You won’t be disappointed by their coffee, skilled baristas such as Heleen and Trieze are behind the counter ! And it goes for the food and the pastries as well.
