Perfect Lunch

Bright, airy and welcoming. Lunch here was somewhat on the expensive side for a brasserie / café, but honestly you get what you pay for. The menu is home prepared to order, the waitress staff multi lingual and very professional. The desserts are to die for. Not cheap but not in any way... read more

Came here for lunch on our wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. Excellent service, lovely surroundings and the food was delicious. Can' fault it in any way. We liked it so much we went back for afternoon tea the next day after our bike ride!

Many tourists visiting Bruges may end up in Damme, a picturesque Flemish village 5 to 6 miles from the touristic city. In summer you can even get there by boat over the canal. The market place and the coffeehouses and brasseries nearby will enchant all tourists. Well, just get a little further and you will discover Tante Marie. Pastry, but... More

I loved this little restaurant when I was there about 6 years ago (It wouldn't let me add 2009)! Can't wait to go back in October!

This is our second visit to this superb café, restaurant, patisserie. The previous visit was over a year ago and happily their extremely high standards have been maintained. This small café / restaurant / patisserie is spotlessly clean and offers home made cakes, a wide selection of coffees and other meals. It is certainly as good as any coffee shop... More

Great little place for exquisite cakes, coffee and choco-milk and ice cream for the children. We got to Damme on bikes riding up canal route from Bruges. Damme is a great place to explore and Tante Marie just tops it off. Good service too.

In the nice village Damme close to Bruges we had a lunch in “Tante Marie”. We particular liked the formula at 18€. A formula consists of a glass of Champagne, a plate filled with a food selection around a theme, a glass of wine and a coffee or tea. You can choose between several themes/suggestions. The food was in general... More

if you visit Damme, a short bike ride from Brugges, this is a nice little spot for a bit to eat or a cup of coffee. This menu is pretty informal, which is suited to the location. Service is friendly but not necessarily quick. It's a great option if you want some good food and have some time to relax.

Definitely has class. Lovely surroundings including outside at the back. Immaculately presented drinks with a biscuit and tasty mini dessert. The cleanest toilets you could wish to use. Just two points. First the background music could be a little,quieter. Second we English do like fresh milk with our tea. Very courteous staff too.

FOOD is very good. Great for a meal in the sun. Their choice of draft beers is good. STAFF is extremely helpful; we were 2 couples with a bunch of kids and they made sure the kids could sit together while the terrace was full. The waiter did even check if they wouldn’t get sunburned and moved the parasol! PRICE... More
