BRING CASH. they serve a different dish each day. you choose small, medium, or large. there is a good wine and beer menu. the food is fantastic. it's not what i would've expected, or probably ever ordered, but sometimes not having choices is a good thing.

This cafe is not too far from the tourist sites and offers a fixed menu with many different things on the plate. Each was excellent. However, the vegan lemon cake didn't do it for me since it was more like flan than cake. There was only ONE waitress so plan to wait and be patient (my meal took 25 minutes to arrive after ordered and she forgot my coffee with me dessert). Only open for lunch, FYI.

Small and nice looking restaurant, one menu per day. All prepare freshly, and served nicely. Food taste awesome, very good for vegetarians and for someone who want's to have some healthy food from time to time. Strongly recomended.

Nice vegetarian cafe in good location. There is one main dish on the menu but you can choose whether you want small, medium or large. It's basically a nice big plate of mixed veg, potato and salad. The food was very nice and a good break from the more meat heavy food in Bruges.
It's pretty busy so try to get in early for lunch (I think they are only open for lunch). It's very popular with locals; which can only be a good sign.

I'm a little puzzled by the negative reviews because my girlfriend and I actually had a very pleasant experience.
My girlfriend is a vegetarian but I am not and it is rare that I eat at a vegetarian restaurant and not miss the meat.
Personally, it was one of the best meals we've had in Bruges in the two times that we've visited.

- FIRST TIP: The front door - Press the little button on the side of the frame to open the door so that you're not just pushing on the door wondering why it won't open then being perplexed as to whether or not the restaurant is closed even though you can see people inside
- The restaurant was filled with locals, which to me, is usually a good sign
- The menus are not in English but the wait staff gladly explained it to us
- There is basically one dish offered for the day that comes in 3 sizes (Small, Medium & Large)
- Most of the other patrons seemed to order the Medium Plate
- Other than that, you can order soup, desserts or drinks
- We ordered 2 soups, 2 small plates and a chocolate mousse
- The lunch dish came with about 8 different components to it (Brown rice, braised fig, salad, stewed cabbage & veg, squash/pumpkin puree, pickled radish, corn & lentil salad and a puff pastry filled with vegetables)
- The table had a small bowl of homemade dill salad dressing (overheard to be lactose free) that was delicious
- The soups were great and the mousse nice and light
- SECOND TIP: They charge for glasses of water
- THIRD TIP: It is Cash Only
