Lovely quaint little tea room. Very busy when we arrived but worth the wait for a table. We had a latte and ginger flavoured hot chocolate (both delicious), filled bagel plus salad and a slice of broccoli and cheese quiche with salad. Portions extremely generous (the quiche was massive).

Come here two days in a row as it was so good. The bagels were fantastic! I had the Serrano ham, scrambled egg and tomatoes both times although the first time they didn't have the Serrano ham they had a smoked Belgian ham instead which in fact i preferred. The waffles looked great, tea and coffee was lovely. The staff... More

Fantastic tea room in the heart of Bruges, so cute and cosy! Unfortunately we didn't find this until our final day in Bruges otherwise I'm sure we'd have been back more than once! Good value breakfasts and great service.

The belge pride themselves for the waffel and the best example of their pride hides in a sweet tiny tea house in Brugge. An elderly lady over eighty runs the place and preserves its beauty and high standards while her son is responsible for the miracles he performs in the kitchen. A rare magic of sweetness, not too sweet, of... More

Found this place when looking for somewhere to have breafast. It's run by a charming family who obviously love what they do as the attention to detail, from the china used, to the service and of course the food is a pleasure to experience. Visited twice in a 3 day stay, both times for breakfast. Delicious!

Family run small tea room. Tasty waffles, pastries, and breakfast dishes. The place is run by the daughter, her husband, children and mother. Very attentive and willing to stop and talk with you. Centrally located and convenient.

Found this place on the first day of our trip. Ran by a lovely, friendly couple. Had some hot chocolate and some amazing freshly made cake, possibly the best cake I've ever eaten. Can't wait to come back!

I had the brie, walnut and honey warm bagel. My husband had the goats cheese version. The bagels were fresh, moist but toasted and crunchy on the outside. The cheese was incredibly generous and the side salad fresh and delicious.

Stopped in here today to avoid the rain and was pleasantly surprised. Greeted promptly by the very friendly lady at the counter and shown to a table. As it was mid-afternoon, I opted to have cake and coffee. The cake was a chocolate sponge with chocolate cream and raspberry - absolutely delicious and a very generous serving! The latte was...
