We loved our visit to A La Mort Subite. As you enter, you can feel the history of all of the visitors. I really liked the atmosphere and loved our beers. My favorite was the Pecheresse, a delicious Peach Lambic.

Lots of beers to choose from, friendly staff and a lovely venue. If you visit, try the peach beer they have on draught - it's very tasty.

There are a few seats outside that are fabulous if you can get them. The street is quite busy and makes for good people-watching.
