Had a lunch here on our first day in Brugge. Quiche served with little salad and also had a prosciutto focaccia which was also nice. The service was nice. there are more tables up a the steep - narrow stairs. they also do cakes and coffee/tea.

This tearoom is noted for the artistic touch which is given to items on its menu, whether that be a selection of cakes, quiche, soup or just a simple coffee. Everything is made to order and so tastefully presented, one feels as if the tearoom is an annex to an art gallery! The upstairs seating area is accessed via an... More

I am writing this actually sitting in this lovely wee coffee shop. We are on a day visit to Bruges and needed a hot drink after climbing the belfry on a cold, windy day! We both had hot chocolate, which was served in cute wee pots and tasted delicious. We also had a trio of chocolate cakes which were served... More

We were disappointed when we couldn't grab a table overlooking the street but it ended up being a blessing, instead we overlooked the kitchen and watched all the delicacies being prepared! It was incredibly entertaining. My 12 year old twins were enthralled. Our food and drinks were terrific. Highly recommended.

Came on the recommendation of guide book and was a bit disappointed. Waitress is friendly but despite chasing twice for 2 Taglitalle with a 30mins wait, she did not go and check The taglitalle is soggy soft and chicken is processed chicken instead of fresh chicken though boglonaise is OK. The almond and red berry pie (microwaved) with cold vanilla... More

Hello, Just wanted to respond because of the 30 mins waiting time. Between entering a business and getting your food a 30 mins waiting time seems OK. Pasta takes 7 mins to cook adding the time to sit,taking your order and serving you'll timing should be OK. The waitress did indeed check for your dishes but as we stated before... More

We stopped in for a light, late breakfast. I had a 'light breakfast' - tea, croissant, roll and cheese. It was marvelous. My husband had a waffle with fruit and a cappuccino with cream, which was decadently rich. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Highly recommend.

The Viennese cappuccino was the best coffee I have ever tasted in my life!!! Can't wait to go back. The owners were so polite. Makes a refreshing change after spending time with the Dutch in the Netherlands!

This was the only really good coffee we found in Bruges - though admittedly we were only there for a few days. They do takeaway if you just want a quick fix but if you possibly can sit down and have the lemon cake or the waffle with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Presentation is excellent - chocolate sauce comes... More
