We've just come back from 'De Bron', where my family and I had a yummy lunch. They are open only Monday-Friday for lunch (between 11.45 and 14.00) and seem to be popular with locals and tourists alike. Pros of the restaurant: 1) The restaurant is...More

Excellent food, simple to order - no menus, just small, medium or large. Medium is a good lunch size. Found the door open and wondered in and found a table, the bell ringing to let yourself in might have thrown me though, being a shy...More

We visited De Bron during a short break to Bruges after spotting it right opposite our hotel (The Ibis). It is a popular, busy little cafe mostly frequented by locals so is great if you like escaping the crowds and going to more 'real' places....More

What is a nice and friendly place! The food was excellent and the service was so nice that it was almost like being at home. I hope the owners agree to open their restaurant for longer hours (it is only open for Lunch).

De Bron is a small resturant in Bruges that serves vegetarian food. In fact it is more like a canteen than a restaurant. It seems like they have converted a house into a restaurant. It has two dining areas - main and the conservatory. The...More

We really enjoyed our lunch here, loved the concept of one meal just different sizes, and my husband as a lacto-vegetarian was pleased to know he could eat everything rather than scrabbling around for non meat and fish options like nearly everywhere else in Bruges.....More
