We visited here after reading the reviews and were not disappointed. We actually arrived shortly before they were closing but were still given a warm welcome by the lady and gentleman who were working there. I had a waffle and my partner had a slice of cheesecake cake - both were lovely and came with a complimentary slice of gingerbread!... More

On a touristic street you can find this charming little restaurant, ideal for breakfast or a yummy snack in the afternoon. Great friendly staff. Try the waffle with chocolate and ice cream or the hot chocolate. Very good!!

Cute little place to have breakfast or a sweet snack in the afternoon. The service was great! Employees were very friendly and we felt well taken care of as soon as we set foot in the door. I tried the waffles with chocolate and ice cream. It was a guilty pleasure to eat it as breakfast. Also try their hot... More

We had breakfast here twice during our stay in Bruges. On both occasions the staff were warm and friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We tried a variety of things off of the menu, our favourite was the traditional Bruges breakfast. The accompanying fresh orange juice was amazing and squeezed to order. Great value and would definitely recommend.

Very friendly place but unfortunately the mini pastries I had were dry and stale. Food at other tables looked lovely though!

We popped in here for a coffee to avoid the rain for a while. It was about 12noon. Considering the time it was very quiet. We ordered two cappuccinos and a latte. I asked if they could do toast for my toddler but apparently they don't have bread there. Slightly odd I thought for a cafe. Anyway, the cappuccino wasn't... More

I must admit my husband & I nearly didn't get to visit this place as we couldn't find it & the shops we asked in didn't have a clue. Saying that though it is just off the market square on a little side road. The service was great, the people friendly & nothing was too much trouble. The food was... More
