This is a lunch/afternoon dining coffee salon. They do salads and pasta and pastries and ice cream and the food is fantastic. They only opened in December 09 but they are people who care about food and know food. It's down a little side street in Brugge. We had an absolutely gorgeous lunch there last Monday

Happened upon this lovely cafe and was lucky enough to grab a table since nearly all were reserved. The salad with goat cheese and apples was surprising - the apples and goat cheese were baked with the salad on the side. The tastes were amazing. The tea was also quite good, especially the St Petersburg Kusmi tea. It was served... More

After ordering what seems not enough the owner was quite unfriendly to us. The food was quite good and the cook friendly. In our opinion it's overpriced: 19€ for a small lunch, 7€ for a piece of cake. The owner suddenly turned friendlier as we ordered more ... strange.

Beautiful! We were on the lookout for this little place, afternoon doing some research and thankfully stumbled across it down a side street. We had tea and a choice of two different cakes/tarts. Everything was delicious and due to be doing so delicate we did not rush through it therefore savouring the flavour. The tea was served in tin pot... More

This cafe could be doing excellent business if the staff was a bit more friendly and the prices were more realistic. There are 2 men running this cute cafe. One is very friendly and the other is not too nice. The food was good, but was totally overpriced. The interior and outside seating is very nice, but does not justify... More

Very nice place! We loved their cappuccino and chocolate cake. The men who are running the place are very friendly. There are seats outside which look romantic. It's a bit expensive (cappuccino is 4,50), but worth it.

Everything is just so. The salads are excellent and the tea/cakes wonderful. Great atmosphere and right in the city centre yet slightly off the beaten track.

Don't expect fantastically polite service, but do expect delicate pastries and delicious hot chocolates. We didn't experience any specific rudeness but two elderly ladies who just wanted one coffee were told 'we don't do that here' and were forced to order something. We were told our bill at the end was 12 euros for two hot chocolates which to me... More
