Warm regards,

D'Hanekeef is Mechelen's oldest café. Around 1950, cafés were the hub of social life in the city and money boxes known as "spaarkaskes" hung on the café walls. Café-goers would put a small sum in them every week, which was then deposited with a financial institution, and eventually the proceeds were used to organise an annual dinner or other festivity. Today D'Hanekeef is still very much a social hub, where customers can gossip and play popular café games to their heart's content. There are some 50 different beers on the beer list.
