This was an almost ideal little find for me on my March 2011 visit, and it provided me with a little chuckle. Tobacco Pub is foremostly an other tobacco shop which has the added bonus of having a cafe-bar which offers a small range of simple snacky-stuff and very-reasonably-priced beer.

Whilst I was enjoying my beer and a light lunch an English couple came in and asked for a menu.

In Adinkerke of course all the bars have "English" menus and here this offered a couple of "English breakfast" options and a few other snacky things.

The male half of the couple said something like "We don't want breakfast, it's lunchtime, we just want a sandwich."

The server, whose English was perfect, pointed out the "baguettes" section of
the menu.

To which the English guy replied - "We dont want any of that foreign stuff, we just want a
sandwich."

HA!

Favorite Dish: Me I had the "Pizza Baguette" which was a toasted half-baguette topped with basil pesto, tomato and cheese and was exactly what I was after. My half-litre of Leffe Blonde turned out to be considerably more than 50 cl (the barmaid having topped the glass almost to the brim) and for a 6.50 Euro lunch this was almost perfect.

The only thing that made the experience less than 100% is the fact that since the bar serves food then you can't smoke in it!
