Fodor's Review

Located just above the place de Jeu de Balle in the heart of the Marolles, this café is a local institution that was previously known for its set brunches and political cabaret. Since the threat of closure, however, it has reopened as a cooperative with a vegetarian canteen dishing up hearty breakfasts and a dish of the day, with a "sweet and savory" assiette on Sunday. It also boasts a well-curated list of bottled beers (many of them organic) from lesser-known Belgian breweries. At night, it hosts live music, cabaret, plays, and poetry slams. When the neighborhood had no running water, this is where residents would come to fill their buckets—hence the name.
