Even more great summer addresses for this summer
Still looking for something else?
In Kortrijk and its suburbs, there are many other nice things that are more than worth making a diversion for.
We will try to pick out the 'speciallekes' for you. And we will gladly guide you to some nice areas where several catering terraces together create a cosy atmosphere.

Terrace zones in the boroughs
The catering industry is well represented in all Kortrijk boroughs. During or after a walk or a bike ride, don't you want to take a well-deserved rest? Or do you live in a borough? Then you certainly know the local stops. Go out and discover the many fine addresses, often located on and around the 'platse' and get to know the locals who are only too happy to share their latest knowledge with you.
Also check out the many activities that take place in summer.
The Kortrijk boroughs are Aalbeke, Bellegem, Bissegem, Heule, Kooigem and Rollegem. Each has its own individuality and puts mostly local drinks and a selection of delicious suggestions on the menu.
Heule, for example, is known for its casual atmosphere on the 'platse' where it is good to stay until late at night. In Kooigem, for example, you have Café Sint-Laurentius with its spacious terrace in front of the church, where you can enjoy a sandwich with 'gekapt' (cut-up) as it used to be when the butcher's shop was next door. Bellegem is the village of the brewery 'Omer Vander Ghinste', so you can't miss the fresh pints there. Rollegem, on the other hand, has a fun play area around the church for children in the theme of 'cowboys' with a managed terrace. In Bissegem, next to the church, there is also a trendy summer terrace of 't Koningshof. In Aalbeke, there are many well-known establishments, such as Sint-Cornil, known for its ribs, but also Vanallier, the restaurant run by the Bossuwé family, which runs several chip shops in Kortrijk, and Labberleute, where you can stay on the terrace and at the bar until late.
Speciallekes outside the centre of Kortrijk
Kortrijk is a creative city, and this is also reflected in the numerous catering establishments run by passionate entrepreneurs. There are too many to mention and we have already listed a few that fit into this list. However, we would like to add the following to the list because they are slightly different and also have a great summer terrace.
