Café Vlissinghe, Bruges, Belgium

Scene: Dating to 1515, this is the oldest pub in Bruges, hidden in the quiet neighborhood of St. Anna. Revelers quaff lagers and play boccie in the ancient stone-walled garden. During inclement weather, they have the option of gathering around the fire in the cozy, wood-beamed interior.

Sustenance: The menu ranges from highbrow bar food like bacon-wrapped goat cheese with honey to comfort food like macaroni and cheese, a salami and cheese board, or simple toasted sandwiches.

Suds: The beer garden keeps three staples on tap: Jupiler, Brugse Zot Blonde, and Leffe Brune. Plumb the list of 20 bottled brews for more interesting options like Tripel Karmeliet or the Framboise Belle Vue.
