Morning tea break

Visited with my wife and our 2 girls. Very nice inside. Loads of space between the tables where we were out in the back. Adults had coffee and the girls milkshakes. The drinks all came with a bowl of about 5 artisan chocolates from the shop across the road. We had an extra two slices of cake... read more

Lovely. We have visited Bruges several times and any visit there would be wasted if we did not visit De Proeverie. Without doubt, the finest hot chocolate in the known world. I urge you, if you visit this beautiful city, please take time out to visit this delightfully charming little shop.

We popped in without any planning for a quick mid-morning refreshment. We were hugely impressed at the simplicity, quality and value for money. Each order was fulfilled by an individual tray set containing hot beverage, cream & a small selection of delicious chocolates. I ordered hot chocolate and was presented with a mug of steaming hot milk and an individual... More

We loved out visit and this cafe is one of the best in town. The famous hot chocolate is awesome and so were the scones with cream and jam. What more can you ask for. Highly recommended

My wife and I are chocoholics so, when exploring Bruges recently, we referred to our guide book which gave a list of drinking chocolate establishments. 'De Prouverie' was one of those mentioned and, as it was fairly central, we made a beeline for it having previously eschewed the chance of a canal trip in favour of a ride in a... More

We just stumbled upon this little tea room whilst visiting Bruges for the day and we were really pleased! We each had a cup of tea which came with some lovely Belgian chocolates and the cake was wonderful. There is an open fire too so this would be ideal on chilly days.

De Proeverie is a real gem in Bruges. We walked in and as they were busy were directed to the second, back room. This was not a problem as it had a wonderful cosy fireplace. We had to add a chair to our table for two as there were 3 of us. However as we were choosing what to have,... More

Great break after an afternoon of sight seeing and shopping. Enjoyed the experience of the hot chocolate, not just the drinking of it. It was a cool day, so it was heavenly to warm up in the café next to the fire and create your own drink. Did not order any food items as we spent so much of the... More

Each hot drink had 3 discs of chocolate on the saucer, both coffee and hot chocolate good quality. The service was good and fires were on in both rooms.

We searched this tea room out based on recommendations here & was really looking forward to their hot chocolate after reading the reviews and seeing the pictures here. I could only really describe it as ok (by Bruges standards) - served with a few nice chocolates which was a nice touch but didn't live up to the expectations. The fire... More
