As a vegan travelling with my meat eating boyfriend B&B was the perfect lunch. Relaxing, slightly off the main tourist route of Bruges and great service. Lots of veggie options and as they cook from fresh, alterations can be made. I had a Mediterranean cous cous Salad with complimentary olives and bread on The side and partner had a cream cheese and salmon toasty (mega-toast). Books and Brunch is Worth a visit, wish we’d had longer to browse the bookshelves.

We had brunch here today and it was absolutely amazing. They have a lot of gluten free options for my fellow Celiacs. The portions are generous and I had zero reaction to the food. Great options for vegetarians as well. The coffee is also really strong and great after all the walking in Bruges. The location is tucked away from the touristy spots and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Went here twice while on holiday in Bruges. Loved the cool decor, all the books, the delicious food and the owner Jos who it turns out is a lover of Irish music and a fellow whistle player. We talked about English folk musicians too and he even got me to play a tune on his own whistle. You don't expect that on holiday . Brilliant!! It stands out as one of the best things I did while in Bruges. Go there if you like something different than what you get in the middle of town. You won't regret the short walk out of the centre.

We visited here for breakfast as we had seen they do gluten free bread. It’s a lovely place, with excellent food and great options for lunch as well as breakfast. It’s a little off the beaten track but worth seeking out. The gluten free baguette is by far the best I have tasted, served warm and fresh. I would highly recommend this great little place for high quality food and brilliant service which is quick and very friendly.

Went to Books & Brunch on our son's recommendation. It's not the cheapest place to have breakfast in Bruges, but if you want a relaxing start to your day in an interesting location, this is the place to go. On our second visit the owner took time to tell us some of the history of the city and recommended places to visit and shop.Definitely worth a visit.
