“Worst waffles in town”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Restaurant changed his name in Place de Bruges instead of Caramel. Looking for waffles in Bruges we arrived in this restaurant. It looked really fancy from the inside and we were welcomed by a barbie-girl with botox-lips. Once we checked the prices the special waffles were way overpriced. More than 8 euro's for only a waffle with some strawberries and whipped cream. We ordered a sugar waffle with coffee (for a reasonable price of 5 euros) and a waffle with strawberries. The quality of the food was terrible and not how a typical Belgian waffle should taste. The waffles were still a little bit underdone and totally not crispy from the outside. Also the coffee was watery and weak. Also the French service and the terrible music (popular latin music) weren't appropriate for the setting. Totally not recommended restaurant and please don't spend your money in this place.

“Decent spaghetti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We had spaghetti bolognese and a beer for 10 euro.
Cant complain at that price, and it tasted great.
Beer was basic Jupiler, but you cant have everything when paying so little.
Perfect for those on a shoestring!

“Nice pasta, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had pasta here for 9 euro each, it was very nice. Cold beers to go with it. It exceeded expectation at the price so we were very pleased. We accidentally left our tourist map behind, and retrieved it 30 mins later which was great as they hadn't binned it.

“Great waffles but over priced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We were looking for the waffle experience in Brugges. Ordinary service, lovely waffles but very over priced. Find better elsewhere.

“Worth lining up for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

There was a line outside a window of this small cafe so I decided to join and see what the fuss was all about and oh my god the waffles were amazing... reasonably priced too which is always a bonus and the main guy serving was very friendly. There is indoor seating if you wish to hang around longer but most people just lined up outside and hung around on the sidewalk to eat. I can see there are negative reviews about this place, maybe we enjoyed it more because we didn't eat inside the restaurant. Definitely recommend going if you want good Belgium waffles.
