Visited here following trip advisor reviews. Very busy little place, but worth visiting. We had bagels and coffee and it was gorgeous. Staff were really nice and chatty. Talking to us about the food and local history. Definitely recommended

Visited the Gingerbread Tearoom based on previous Trip Adviser comments and we were not disappointed. Tea, coffee and cakes were good but the main reason for leaving a review was the exceptional service and atmosphere. The owners treat you as if you are a regular and not just another paying customer. We enjoyed our visit so much we went back... More

We trusted the reviews and visited here, and were so glad we did! We ended up visiting twice during our brief visit - once for breakfast, and once for lunch, and both times is was just exquisite. The food and drink is just extremely special - from their gorgeous homemade raspberry lemonade and speciality fruit teas, through to their gorgeously... More

Wow! This is a place to get to for lunch in Bruges. We tried to come here the previous day but didn't have reservations and were unable to sit down, so we made reservations the next day. (Note: They only serve lunch from 12-2, breakfast from 8:30-11:30, and just tea/snacks after lunch time) We couldn't have been happier with our... More

Great waffles in Bruges , I ask for syrup and they immediately told me Belgians do not put syrup on their waffles. Good breakfast place, but be aware they only take cash. good location for exploring the city.

This tea room was recommended, and we were not disappointed, when we visited recently whilst on a visit from the UK. Gorgeous cappuccino, amazing Belgian Waffles and really friendly staff. Fantastic and well worth a visit.

We had breakfast at Gingerbread, 10/10. It's the only place we visited in Bruge that we enjoyed, the staff are lovely and friendly. It's the first time I've left a review on trip advisor, only because we loved the place so much. The story behind the family is so sweet and lovely. The attention we received was amazing, and I...

Very friendly owners, they serve with a smile. I had the Bunnie Serrano (scrambled egg with Serrano ham) which was very nice and my GF had a Bunnie Salmon but as she doesn't like scrambled eggs, the owner happily provided some Philadelphia cheese. Two weeks later we visited again for some cappuccino and cake. The coffee was good, the cake... More
