Was okay

Day trip to Bruges, visited here in the afternoon. It wasn't terribly busy. We had two hot chocolates (hot milk with block of chocolate attached to a wooden spoon) and vanilla and chocolate pound cake. Total €15. Staff were polite and drinks/ food was fine but nothing to shout about.

Visit 29th Jan, mid afternoon. On a rainy windy day we wanted to find a nice little cafe to warm up and have a drink. By finding wifi luckily we found this highly rated place, which is located across the street from the chocolate shop it is a partner of. We both had the special hot chocolate, which comes with...

We stopped at De Proeverie for a hot chocolate, as was advised in our travel guide. The tea room is a famous spot for the hot beverage, making it using their homemade chocolate (store across the street). The staff was very welcoming and the atmosphere of the shop was very comfortable. It is small, albeit having two rooms, and it... More

Tea rooms situated behind the shop selling cakes and all sorts of goodies. Richly decorated with space for parties , feels very much like being invited for tea in someone's home. Two of our group had black tea whilst my friend's wife and I enjoyed the signature Chocolademelk De Proeverie well worth e4.50 which was as rich and unctious and... More

We came here for tea and coffee in the afternoon. The young man that works there is very nice and helpful but I guess his shift ended before we left because an older woman came in his place. She was beyond rude; the things she said to one of the customers were reprehensible. The customer was a tourist, like myself,... More

We visit De Proeverie every time we visit Brugge and we are never disappointed. The tea room is simply gorgeous and the hot chocolate is simply to die for - served as a piece of chocolate on the end of a wooden spoon that you plunge into the hot milk and swoosh about until it dissolves. Simply amazing!

We usually make for this wonderful place en route for the Zeebrugge/Hull ferry following our three week tour of Central Europe. The cakes are exquisite and simply the best coffee ever. The small saucer of chocolates simply rounds off the experience. Not the cheapest place, but worth every Euro!

We were ready for a sit down and coffee, and we spotted this place. We went throughthe confectionary shop into the little tea room at the back, where we found it busy yet relaxing. We ordered a mixture of coffees and hot chocolate, which all came with chocolates, biscuit and cream. The hot chocolate was hot milk into which one... More
