I love this place. The food is great, and I like that they specialize in Belgian beers. It's not a fast place, but once you're here, you'll want to stay, so don't come here in a hurry.

this is kind of a self service-order at the counter-kind of place with a large selection of Beers. We ordered sandwiches for dinnner which were very good. but otherwise a limited menu of food.

Went here after work with a colleague and found it to be very popular and crowded. Bar is kind of setup in a U, with seating area's wrapping around the building, and not many tables. Nice selection of local and foreign hard to find beers...More

We had read about this little gemstone, and grabbed a beer and shared some food items (some sort of gourmet grilled cheese, and a kale salad) that were delicious. We'll definitely return the next time we're in Oakland.
