We stopped in for breakfast and everyone was ultra friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the home made jam was a treat. A real family feel to the place and the nicest reception we had during our stay in Bruges.

In a lovely ambiance, this little place offers a good variety of dishes for good prices. It's very good. Moreover, the quality of the service is very very good. Indeed, this restaurant is held by a family who really takes care of their clients. The waffle and the bagel are good choices.

Delicious waffles--light, crunch outside, soft in the inside. I had mine with fresh fruit and chocolate sauce. The staff were so kind and sweet--and the shot of Avocaat (liquer) was to die for! :) I would love to come again!
