Bar

“It is the perfect spot to work during the week. They have good free internet, quite lots of places to plug your batteries and lots of table, so you will probably find one to sit in. The staff is very friendly, the coffee cost 2 euros, they have good food if you like so and they have really good playlist. So, well, perfect place! During weekends in the evenings it's a great please to meet locals and to have a lot of music and ambiance! ”

Brasserie
$$
“Ideal for a stop over a meal, a drink or a coffee, the Ultime Atome offers a true range of the Franco-Belgian cuisine in an Art Nouveau "revisité" decor where the atmosphere couldn’t be more cosmopolitan. It is also a not-so-typical brasserie that provides daily new suggestions, homemade recipes and dishes for eating "on the go", quick turnaround at noon for a lunch between colleagues or a pleasant setting for a sit down with friends in the evening.”
