Toone Historical Pub in Brussels, Belgium

On our second trip to Brussels, while wandering around the city, we happened upon a narrow alley that looked very familiar.

I thought for sure it would lead us to ‘A La Becasse’, a favourite historical pub from our previous trip.the Alley leading to the Toone Pub in Brussels, Belgium Instead it lead into ‘Toone’, another pub on our ‘Traditional Pub List’.

This wonderful creature was almost 20 years old, one of a long line of cats belonging to the seamstress who lived next door.
