Sitting on a terrace with your feet in the sand, you can enjoy a Golden Pier Kloeffe—an artisanal beer brewed in the tradition of De Panne’s rich fishing history.
Panneschum is another local blond beer, brewed for the annual Leopold Festivals.
If you prefer brown beer, then Pannepot is definitely for you!
Fancy something a bit stronger? Try the Pier Kloeffe gin or Picon! The latter is very popular in the 'schreve' area (Belgian-French border) and made from orange peel.

To stave off hunger, order a portion of 'kerremelksmeus' with shrimp—a potato dish that was traditionally often eaten by fishermen. You should certainly try Marc Deswarte’s asparagus with this—these are grown in the fossil dunes just a short distance away from De Panne.
And can’t visit De Panne without trying the Meli products (honey, chocolate, honey waffles, sweets, etc. made with Meli honey).
