Get yourself a treat!

Out on the gardenterrace on dry and sunny days, or cosily inside. For breakfast, lunch, or afternoon coffee/tea: each and every bit on your plate is a homemade, tasty, smooth or crunchy treat! When it is very busy, service is rather poor - due to too many inexperienced extra sfaff. And that is... read more

Cycling from Bruges to Damme on a mild winters day we decided to stop here for lunch. A lovely warm welcome, excellent service and attention to detail. Lovely food and reasonable prices

This used to be a reference for the area for both quality and superb service. Things seem to have changed recently...is there a tax on being friendly in Belgium ? But even then, that tax could never be so high to explain the rudeness of the waitress...

Been a regular visitor for probably more than twenty years. Seen the service degrading over the past few years. Our last visit beat everything, a rude waitress...we left immediately. What a shame for a place with once was a benchmark for quality and service.

A short walk from the canal and a lovely restaurant. A nice courtyard for dining - weather permitting. Due to the rain we ate indoors. The quiche Loraine and salad with goat cheese was excellent. Good menu choices and a friendly staff.

A friend recommended Tante Marie to us and we decided to bike from Brugges to Damme. It was a beautiful bike ride and not very strenuous at all...maybe 45-50 minutes at a fairly relaxing pace. Tante Marie was centrally located and the food delicious. If it's a nice day, they have a great patio out back. Loads of delicious looking... More

We enjoyed a tasty hot chocolate in this restaurant the other morning. It is a large place with a varied menu from what we could see!

Had a nice lunch here. We sat inside, all the places were taken outside in a courtyard. Local food. Away from the town center, but an easy walk.

After visiting Brugge, we stopped in Damme for lunch. The food was delicious in the Brasserie Tante Maria! As main dish, I had shrimps with coconut milk and curry: soooo good!

After a pleasant walk beside the canal from Bruges (don't believe guide books it's nearer 2 hours than 1!) this patisserie in Damme must be visited. Try any of the huge variety of cakes with a Belgian coffee - or fish and chips with beer! Highly recommend.
