Beer With a Side of ParadiseLocated in the picturesque Place aux Oignons, Au Vieux de la Vieille is the first place I started falling in love with Lille. At the end of my first day exploring the city by foot, I stopped in to kick back and enjoy a beer. I couldn't get over how beautiful the little cobblestone street and the brightly painted buildings around me were. I felt like I truly found a quiet little paradise hidden in the bustle of the city!
I haven't had the chance to eat here yet, but I've been told by a number of locals that this restaurant boasts some of the best traditional Flemish food in the city. I'm dying to go in and have a taste for myself...I can often smell the Maroilles cheese from the street!
