Fancy a restaurant with a difference? If you feel like reading and taking some time out in a pub in Nord-Pas de Calais, go to La Chèvre Book'in. This literary pub is located on the village square in Esquelbecq, by the lovely typical "hallekerque" church. It has 700 books you can read on site. At the weekend, Rita serves up dishes that, while not all 100% Flemish, are made with local, seasonal products. You'll love the goat cheese, made by your hostess, who breeds her own goats. There's a lovely terrace with beautiful views over the Yser river. The tourist office is right next door, with all the information you could want about the area.
