It’s kind of a difficult mission to choose out of this wide offer. I made my little list of events keeping in mind my preferences of sweets & meat. That’s when my heart goes bum.

Who remembers what Fork & Bottle stands for? I discovered them back in Winter last year (see my foodguide) and I am still a big fan of their excellent meat and craft beer choice!

Get a seasonal and a local farm-to-table food menu in complement to the tasting.

I love this little cofee place close to the mainstaition. The coffee selection at Café Noir ranges from classical dark roasts to fruitier interpretations. Add a piece of hand made bean to bar chocolate from the company Garçoa. You will notice the difference of a processed small batches immediately. A photo gallery illustrates the path from bean to finished chocolate bar.
