Cakes to die for!

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.

Very nice outdoor seating and great service. The menu had lots of options including some vegetarian dishes (not vegan though). The cheese croquettes were one of the best things I've had while in Belgium!

After checking out almost every restaurant in Damme, our group chose Tante Maria and we were thrilled. The food was fresh and thoughtfully prepared. They handled food allergies in our group perfectly. Everyone loved their meals with special raves for the pasta carbonnara, the shrimp croquettes and the goat cheese.

I walked past this cafe on my way to the church and decided it looked like a good place to grab some lunch. I ordered the quiche as a starter size and was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. The slice was large and there was a small side of pasta salad that I was not expecting. I also thought the... More

Walking just a little bit further down the street towards the church I came across this liitle cafe. It was beautifully decorated and laid out and had a lovely selection of tartes to have with my coffee. I chose a rasberry tarte. It came with coffee and a little complimentary pot of chocolate mousse, a nice little touch common to... More

This is a great place to stop on a nice day for a drink or so. In regards to food and hte bakery, prices are a bit inflated. A bowl of soup ran for about 7 euros, and came with tasty bread. The soup itself, which was minestrone, was a bit odd. There were only scraps of noodles, almost like... More

Having caught the paddle steamer from Bruges, we arrived at Tante Marie in time for a late but delicious lunch. We just had the home-made soup and bread, plus a wonderful dessert and coffee. Lovely airy room and the staff were so attentive but non-obtrusive. Would most definitely recommend even tho not the cheapest option.

This was a fabulous place. We sat in the outdoor garden, which was beautiful. The food was fresh, flavor some and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and prompt. We had the soup, beautiful favour and Mediterranean mixed dish, Devine. Would def come back! Well worth a visit.
