Best hot chocolate in town !

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

Popped in this lovely tea room on a cold and rainy day in March. The fireplace added a nice touch and was just what we needed to warm us up! My friend loved her hot chocolate and I had a lovely tea. I would definitely go back and have the hot chocolate having read the wonderful reviews about it from... More

and that was in one day. Our trip to and from the bus station takes us past this little piece of Bruges heaven. A Hot chocolate in the morning followed by hot chocolate and cake on the return. A trip to Bruges is not complete with a visit to this wonderful establishment

probably the best coffee shop my wife and I have ever visited anywhere in the world, great coffee served with a nice selection of chocolates and extra cream on the side. The cakes are to die for forget calorie counting and just indulge and enjoy you will not forget it in a hurray.
