We have just visited this delightful tea room/restaurant, hoping to have lunch, but turned up a little too late, just after 2pm. Don't let this put you off however. We decided to stay anyway, & had a delicious bagel each, which came with salad. Mine had a goats cheese, honey & pine nut filling & was superb. I also had... More

We stayed in Bruges for a long weekend and this place was so good we went twice. The hot chocolate is a must (real chocolate and hot milk that you stir together). We tried all 3 flavours over our two trips (dark, milk and white). The cake was outstanding, the portions huge and the waffles were beautiful. Received brownies for... More

We visited this tea-rooms on a number of occassions whilst on a Christmas Fair trip to Bruges. We used it in the main for breakfast which they had a very good choice of but we also went for afternoon tea a couple of times. The surroundings were very pleasant and calm and relaxing. The staff who were a family were... More

I went today after reading these reviews- the staff were so friendly and lovely- even making our pancake earlier than 2pm! The atmosphere was lovely and calm, we weren't rushed and everything was spotless and delicious. Reasonably priced too! Would definitely recommend.

We had an amazing breakfast of homemade waffles (me) and scrambled eggs (him) with fresh coffee and juice. This is a lovely little place run by a family - the owner has sensibly recruited her parents to help! Plenty of charm, service is excellent and the food was incredible. Only downside is you may need to wait a while for... More

We were in Bruges for 3 days and visited this wonderful little cafe/tea rooms on all 3 days!! The staff were lovely, welcoming us back on our 2nd and 3rd visits and making us feel really welcome. The cakes were yummy, the soup was sooper and the hot chocolate was to die for - by far the best in Bruges,... More

After seeing previous reviews on here we decided to take a look and try it out for ourselves. We weren't disappointed! The atmosphere on entering was lovely and we were greeted by what I presume was the owner.
