I took my mother on a trip to belgium where we had a day in bruges. Had previously been here before with my boyfriend and loved it so thought I would take mum for some tea & cake. When we arrived another couple just got the last table in front of us, the lovely mother of the cafe told me... More

This place is a true marvel. Ran by some lovely people, the service is first class. It has the local / homely feel. The coffee choice was amazing, I recommend the gingerbread Latte! My girlfriend said the Victoria sponge cake was the best she had ever had. This little gem is also located in the city centre so make sure... More

Initially we aimed for the breakfast, but missed it by 30 minutes. However, after ordering in two vegetarian bagels (two different with goat cheese) we realised it was for the better. We both thought they were the best bagels we ever had, especially the cold goat cheesebagel served with salad and tomatojam. The service was excellent, during our meal three... More

We had to wait to get in at two without a reservation but my goat's cheese and honey bagel was excellent. Keep in mind they don't serve lunch after two (we were the last to get our order in). The hot chocolate is a reason to pop in on the go; you can get dark, milk or white, and it's... More

We went for breakfast during the winterholidays 30/12/14. The place is not rather small but even without reservation (which is advised as I know now) and the fact we had our 9 weeks old son in a pram, staff immediately came to help and make some room so we could have a seat at the only available table left.

After reading the reviews, set out to find this place for breakfast today. We got there to discover a sign in the window saying they would open at 11am, not the normal hours of 9am! Disappointed we couldn't have breakfast here.....maybe next time.

The gingerbread cafe is a hidden gem along the backstreets of Brugge; the staff were extremely warm and welcoming and very eager to please. We had a hot chocolate which was served with a chocolate Santa and a small piece of cake. There were many other homemade larger cakes to choose from as well. The gingerbread cafe serves breakfast until... More

Unfortunately we only found this little place on our last day after reading reviews on here. So we went for brunch - a great choice I had the sweet choice of breads and homemade jams which was extremely tasty - my husband picked the breads with scrambled egg and added bacon and he was in his element. The white hot... More
