TAVERN 'T LEEUWKE: Great People Watching
Here is a restaurant in the main street providing both inside and kerb side drinking and dining. A great place to watch the passing parade while enjoying a tea or coffee or a beer on a warm day.
It is located beside the main large Delhaize Supermarket in Herentals.
Specializing in Sandwiches, Hot Sandwiches, Salads, Pastas, Soups, Desserts and drinks the Tavern is popular with mature aged customers who appreciate the very competitive prices.
The owner is very helpful with translations of the menu.
Open daily 0815 - 1800..could be closed Sunday
Favorite Dish: We visited Tavern 't Leeuwke twice during our three day visit to Herentals. Once for coffee on the Grote Markt to watch the passing parade enjoying a festive weekend which included a cook-off competition for BBQ cooks hoping to represent Herentals in a Belgium-wide BBQ comp.
The following day we had lunch inside and thoroughly enjoyed our selections.
I had a salad which was enormous with the biggest range of products one could imagine. It was served with potato wedgies served in a small cast iron pot. Dark Beer washed it down beautifully. Ha! check the photo!Related to:

Ice skating at Netepark
On 19th February we went open air iceskating in Herentals Bloso Centre.
It is always fun to have people joining who have never done this before.
Lydia never did but she knew how to skate on wheels so in no time she was skating as if she had always been a champion.
Sam had just arrived from Uganda the previous week and I am convinced he would never had imagined a week ago he would be doing this! He was brave and persistant and did'n't gave up. Local youth were coming towards him to ask him many questions and encourage him.
By the end of the day he did pretty well.
And so did most of us.
If you would like to see all champs in action, feel free to visit the Karibu fotki website!
Equipment: You can bring your own ice skates or you can rent some. Ask always at least one size bigger then your shoe size.
When you turn them in don't forget to dry the blades.Related to:
