Seriously, I never expected to find authentic Italian cappuccino in a small city like Leuven. Especially ‘extremely authentic’ Italian coffee. But, as it is, life turns up many surprises. ‘Le Graal’ has a French name but it is run by three Italian siblings: two brothers (one of them rather hot) and a sister. All of them extremely friendly. Ever since I have discovered them, I make it a point to have my Sunday morning cappuccino there. They do pancakes as well. In case you are interested in joining me, they’re at Rector De Somerplein 3, 3000 Leuven.
