The service is friendly and quick and the menu is in various languages which is a bonus. I was surprised with the amount of tea's they had to offer, they are around 4 euro each and in each pot you get at least 2 cups. We didn't try any of the cupcakes but they look delicious.

A nice little cafe, nothing special. Enjoyed a latte with delicious complimentary chocolates. Cupcake was too artificially flavoured and cake was poor. Hubby had scone which he enjoyed.

Service Polite and courteous. Initially delighted with being served two Scones each we were soon to discover that the scones were defrosted and warmed in the microwave making them Goodyear tyre like in their consistency. Our initial delight turned to double disappointment. It's also fortunate we like strong tea because it is premade and poured into jugs. All this for... More

Our Dutch friends took us here as they had been there 4 yrs earlier, they were nervous it wouldn't be as good, they had nothing to worry about, it was fantastic, the waitresses were so friendly and the presentation was great,

We found this cozy caffe by coincidence on our way to the historic center of Brugges. What a delightful surprise this was!!! The lady was really nice and gentle and the service was unbelievable. I think I would never forget the impression I had when I saw our order on the table. We had one hot chocolate, one cafe latte... More

We were recommended by the people who ran the boat trips to have tea here. We were told English people like it! So we gave it a try. We only wanted a drink, so I can't comment on the food, although if there had been cake we liked the look of, we would probably have tried some, but the cake... More

I walked into this charming little shop near the canal with my son, and was greeted with a friendly smile. A smile that quickly disappeared when the waitress realized that we were American. Throughout the course of our meal, the woman behind the pastry counter and our waitress shot us and the other english-speakers dirty glares, and shoved our food... More

Lovely English style tea room in Bruges. I can recommend the hot chocolate as well as the many teas and coffees on the menu. Also scones and cakes are very good. Great in the winter to sit near the fire and read a newspaper!

We sought out Tea-Room De Proeverie in Bruges on the recommendation of family members who had been there the month before our visit. (Thanks, Cat and Joe!!) Oh my! What an amazing experience. The service was fast and friendly, the atmosphere was charming, and the hot chocolate was incredible! The candies that accompanied the chocolate were yummy. We also shared... More

This shop is linked to the chocolate shop across the street so when you ask for a hot chocolate drink you get a mug of hot milk with some melted chocolate to mix in with some cream to place on the top when you have mixed in the chocolate. Plus you get a sample of 4 chocolate all of which... More
