Delicious

Recent trip to Bruges took us to this bakery and the specialize in amazing delicious pastries. Academiestraat is only a short street and easy to miss this place, if you are coming from the Market the it it should be on the right side of the road.

We tried the mint chocolate mousse dessert, the chocolate-whipped-cream-meringue dessert, and the passion fruit mango dessert. All three were absolutely delicious. The woman who worked in the patisserie was very friendly, and took the time to tell me about each delicious and gorgeous option. I want to go back tomorrow and try the other sweets! They also offer ice cream.... More

We discovered this exquisite bakery way back in 2010; and since then, have purposely placed Brugge on every European itinerary of ours just to partake of the heavenly tastes that Tom Van Looch concocts. Currently this bakery has no seating available, but Tom is considering moving the location where he can offer seating. He graciously points to and explains each... More

Such an amazing little understated shop in Bruges. Brilliant pastries and spotless service. We liked it so much that we wanted to buy some for friends back home, told them we are driving to the UK and they packed everything in a thermal bag for us. Simply a must-visit while in Bruges!!!

Modern and highly refined patisserie we visit systematically when we hit Brugge. Hard to choose from all the superb looking pastries in the display. We typically end up ordering a few in a take away box and finish those as we wander through the little streets of Brugge. Being Belgian we're used to being treated when it comes to pastries... More

My name is Ben and I'm a cake/pastryholic. Patisserie Academie is not helping me break my addiction. So nice I visited multiple times including 5 minutes before our cab out of Brugge. It's a couple of minutes walk from the main square and costs are between €3 - 5 a pastry. You may think that expensive but I can assure... More

We stopped at Patisserie Academie over the weekend after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We tried the eclair, which was a beautiful light choux pastry filled with creme patissiere wrapped in chocolate. It was lovely ! We also had a beautiful light strawberry and vanilla tart, pastry was very light. We also tried the ice cream which was homemade.... More
