Tearoom Carpe Diem lived up to its many glowing reviews. We were seated in the front room which was like eating in someone's 19th century parlor. The salmon baguette sandwich came with a generous amount of thick smoked salmon slices. The dessert waffle was delicious. Hot chocolate was served with a little slice of cake and an assortment of sugars.... More

After reading a few reviews we decided to check this place out and it is really superb! We had some coffee, juice,waffles and sandwiches! It was so delicious we even forgot to make photos of the food. The atmosphere is authentic, with lots of classic decor! A must visit in Bruges!!!

If you are not interested in eating an amazing sandwich, you better ask anything else. We thought it would be a small bread and it turned out to be almost a full lunch. Their coffee is also very well served. Worth the time and the price.

Delicious breakfast. We saw someone eating it though the window and knew immediately what we wanted! We ordered a luxury breakfast and a waffle. This came with champagne and was a massive treat! Cannot recommend enough. Lovely way to start our holiday.

Based off the review of others we stopped in here while passing through Brugge. Waffles were excellent as was my croque monsieur. Very civilised and worth a visit.

The tea room is attached to a small bakery which has some really great treats, but the restaurant itself is nothing to write home about. Expect a really basic, over-priced breakfast or brunch. If you want authentic, Belgian waffles then I'd suggest going elsewhere. When we were there (Thursday morning), the entire tea room was being serviced by one waiter... More

This little tea shop is opposite an amazing looking patisserie shop, which is what first caught our attention. We had Flemish coffees, which were delicious and the soup of the day with really nice bread. Unfortunately we were then too full for the waffles we had planned to have, but the table next to us ordered them and they looked... More

Lovely cafe, with a nice peaceful open air rear courtyard. Friendly staff and yummy fresh waffles. I recommend the Carpe Diem!

A bit difficult to find as you have to enter via a bakery entry (part of their shop but a little confusing). Really enjoyed the waffles here, one of the best I ever had and there was a choice of two single origin coffees along the standard espresso which I hope more restaurants start doing. No problem for vegetarians here... More
