Tea for 2 away from the sea

During a recent cruise we stopped at Brugges and found a delightful tea shop where a local speciality was a type of apple crumble but with lots of other tongue tickling additions. And the cuppa wasn't bad too, along with the free chocolate goodies on the saucer.

This was amazing. The famous hot chocolate comes as hot milk in a tea cup with a miniature jug of hot chocolate that you pour into the milk and stir and then you take the mound of cream that also comes on your tray and put that on top. You also get a small dish of hand made chocolates included.... More

We happened upon this tea room and had a very pleasant experience. We had coffee, hot chocolate and desserts. Everything was delicious. The tea room was very busy. One piece of advice- select your dessert on entering. We ordered from the menu and were not quite sure how it connected to what was in the displays. The place was too... More

We were expecting a much better hot chocolate in the country of chocolate - in fact we can get better hot chocolates at a cafe near our home town. The hot chocolate looked unpleasant when the the milk was mixed with the molten chocolate and did not taste very high quality.

We visited this tea room in July when visting Bruges. We had a very warm welcome upon entering the tea rooms. Once seated (after drooling past the lovely cakes on show), I ordered a Grandma's Garden fruit tea and my boyfriend ordered a peppermint tea. WoW!!!! Mine was the best I have ever had, it came in its own tea... More

It's a cosy and cute tea room; they serve chocolates with everything. But I've been here twice and the incredibly pretty cupcakes aren't really as great as they look. Slightly dry, slightly over-iced. It's a nice place for a coffee, but I'd not make a point of going back again.

Have gone to De Proeverie for 10 years and haven't found a better tearoom in Bruges for cakes. Can get busy but never have had to wait for a table. Downside is that they only take cash and the staff aren't the most welcoming. Will be back though.

Brugge is probably the only city I enjoy shopping in. And that's probably because we combine this each time with a nice surprisingly green hike through the little streets of Brugge. Parking at the train station we pass Minnewaterpark and hit De Proeverie on our way to the city center. This place is delicious old-fashioned and has the best hot... More

Having tried a number of places to get a decent caffe latte and a good cup of tea this is the best in Brugge. The menu describes how each item is served so no confusion over what you get. A caffe latte as we like it is called a Latte Macchiato served hot in a large glass with cream on... More
