For generations, Beim Renert has been welcoming locals and tourists alike. Certainly, most would agree that the café, which can trace its roots back to the dawn of the 20th century, constitutes just as integral an element to the beautiful Place Guillaume II as the very stones that cobble its streets or the statue of the fabled fox (and the café’s namesake) across the square.
After changing hands in 2014, it reopened with an updated look and identity that honours its bond with the legendary Renert. Inside, the black and white wood-panelled interior is reminiscent of a traditional Luxembourgish bistro and creates a laid-back and inviting atmosphere. The new stylish image performed so well with their guests that since 2020 they have been offering their own merch, with a new collection coming out every year.
Behind the bar, the team puts a lot of time and effort to offer a selective variety of quality drinks. Regularly, they attend workshops to learn more about coffee and how to prepare the perfect brew. The same attention to detail goes into every item they serve, from their range of beers and spirits to classic cocktails. Their white wines are exclusively sourced from the cellars of the Luxembourgish Moselle.
In terms of food, they offer a modern interpretation of a traditional bistro-style kitchen, rotating between 4 – 5 seasonal dishes every week. For special events, including local and international holidays, the café and terrace are filled with the chords of live music from every genre and the aromas of befitting delicacies.
Preserving the spirit of place, their concept seeks to “re-introduce tradition” in a contemporary setting that welcomes everyone, young and old, to sit down together and just enjoy the moment. Be that for a rejuvenating coffee in the morning or a casual after-work cooldown with colleagues and friends. As Giordano, the owner of the current iteration would describe it: Its plain and simple “Rock ’n’ Roll.”
