We had a great breakfast at Tearoom Carpe Diem. We ordered pancakes with fresh fruit, bananas foster pancakes and a cheese omelette. The pancakes were actually more like crepes. My cappuccino and my daughter's hot chocolate were served on trays with a tiny piece of cake and a chocolate. The food and atmosphere were wonderful! If we ever visit Bruges... More

This is a charming tea room. The breakfast was delicious with a good selection of breads, pastries and coffee to choose from. our waitress was quite rude but this did not affect our overall enjoyment of our breakfast.

We had high expectations of our first Belgian Waffle and this did not disappoint. A welcome haven on a cold day we warmed up in the cute conservatory before ordering. The waiter was genuinely friendly and super efficient. Our waffles (homemade got chocolate, icecream and fresh strawberries) did not disappoint. Their in cafe bakery also looked worth a visit.

I just realised what I had had before weren't waffles at all! At Carpe diem I had the softest, mouth watering waffles with chocolate you could ever imagine!

Great choice for lunch if you don't want a full meal as so many restaurants in Brugge offer you. Tasteful croques (toasts) and sandwiches and friendly staff.

I was really looking forward to have waffles while in Belgium so I wanted to choose a good spot and this was definitely it. I had fresh waffles with strawberries and they were delicious. They take longer than what I expected but they were definitely worth the wait. The service was also a little slow but it was because they... More

We went there for breakfast. The pastries and waffles were delicious ; the special coffee too. The staff was very kind. It's definitely worth a visit.

We had really yummy waffles here and there were lots of great-looking pastries to choose from too. The coffee would have been good if you order it black - the way they like it in Belgium. Alas, I ordered a cappuccino thinking that - because they were known for coffee and had all manner of beans to choose from -... More

We called in for lunch on Wednesday on a day trip to Bruges. The service was quick and friendly. My homemade hot chocolate with cream was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked and my omelette was fresh and flavoursome. I thought the tea room decor and the building was very impressive. It's not particularly cheap....but basically you... More

We popped in here for breakfast on our first morning in Brugge. It was pretty busy and only 1 waiter on. There is a really cute conservatory at the back so decided to sit down anyway as we were in no rush. We chose the carpe diem breakfast with with coffee and orange juice. It did come out in stages,...
