Dinner at Café Het Goudblommeke in Papier

Het Goudblommeke in Papier - La Fleur en Papier DoréHet Goudblommeke in Papier is a classic café in the heart of Brussels, a favourite watering hole of the surrealist movement in the 1920s. The name (La Fleur en Papier Doré in French) means The Golden Paper Flower, a poetic and very fitting name. The little café with it’s kitch/bric-a-brac interior is still a meeting place for artists and writers.

The founder of the café was Geert van Bruaene, who was also a poet and art dealer, so it was only natural that artists like René Magritte (Artsy gallery), Louis Scutenaire and Marcel Mariën would come here – do look up their art, although you probably shouldn’t google Marcel Mariën’s photography art while at work. We came here for a beer dinner, though, with family brewers Brasserie Dubuisson and Brasserie Lefebvre delivering the beer. Læs mere Dinner at Café Het Goudblommeke in Papier
