A little touch of heaven!

This little tea room has a fairly dull facade, but just look through the door and see the array of delights that await. This is just what was needed on a cold, wet day...a warm fire, fantastic coffee and simply stunning cakes. You order and within a minute or so you were served. Called in two days... read more

Enjoyed this cozy little tearoom. Excellent coffee served with delicious chocolates from the chocolate shop across the road, a great idea. This was a lovely place to take a break from sightseeing.

A nice interior, relatively modern and a the fire added a little extra. If tea is your thing then probably worth a visit. However, the menu lacks the choice and variety of many of the other cosy places around Brugges when wanting warm drink. Only one hot chocolate available, which was quite bland. Had the feeling of quite a busy... More

A lovely little tea room which is a must if you are visiting the diamond museum. The cakes are delicious and there is an array of teas and coffees. With the most amazing specialist hot chocolate. Nice airy room which is not overcrowded like many of the others in the area.

I went there for Valentine's Day and was surprised to see it wasn't fully packed. The flow was decent and we were seated in the minute following our entrance. The place is warm, even hot and it smells of herbs and tea (which is obvious, for a tea-room). The choice in teas, coffees or cold beverages is extensive and its... More

Must go in here and try a hot chocolate, it's to die for! You can even go to the back and see them making the cakes which is a lovely experience. Decor is lovely and the staff were very friendly. Can't fault anything about it. The chocolates that they serve with the hot chocolates were beautiful - still dreaming about... More

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 :(
