This is a beautiful tea room with roaring fires and the most decadent and indulgent treats. I visit Bruges a lot and always have to stop here for their hot chocolate and cakes. An absolute treat. Bruges is also easy to drive to from the UK (via ferry to Calais or Dunkirk) and has lots of easy to find car... More

Delicious cakes, charming room (more seating through the back) and roaring fires kept us cosy in December. You assmble the hot chocolate yourself, with melted chocolate and cream for you to add as you like. Hot drinks also came with a portion of truffles from the chocolate shop over the road.

Fast and polite service. Good quality in all products. Lovely decoration full of paintings with doggie-faced portraits. Fireplace in the back room. BUT no take-away :(

This tea room was extremely inviting with the open fireplace on a chilly Brugge afternoon. The service was efficient and friendly, and the range of different teas, coffees and cakes were very good. We had an English tea and a hot chocolate which were both served with 4 small chocolates and a bottle of water. This came to €10.20. The... More

This place is so cute and sweet it will give you a cavity on sight. The cupcakes on display are like little works of art; eating one is an experience you will not forget. The hot chocolate comes out on a little tray with all kinds of bits and pieces; it is absolutely adorable. Walk to the back and you... More

We were recommended this place by a few friends and when in Belgium it would be rude not to indulge the ol' sweet tooth. This is the place to do it! It's a very cosy, old style cafe and the food and drink are excellent. Add to that the warm feeling of sitting next to a real open fire, you... More
