“About time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

About time Bruges had its own real espresso bar where the coffee is great, and it is served as it should be. Where you don't go for the cheapest combo of pancakes and coffee, but for the love a decent cup and a great atmosphere. Oh, and when you're there: don't forget to try the delicious cakes!

“Original coffeespot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We found this place during a walk in Bruges, near the shopping street 't Zand.
My first impression was that it was retro, but very cool and original.
This is the kind of place I could go to and sit down for hours reading or writing.
I also really liked their bookshelf!
Coffee and tea were fine also, they even had some home-made baked stuff.

“Great Take Away Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Bruges needed a take away coffee shop like this one.

It's the only one in town like it.

Good coffee, great service, great atmosphere and location.

Very friendly owner and staff.

I'll be back for sure.

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Not in Bruges long enough to get round all options but a great coffee and eat here with atmosphere but without the sting in the bill. A really pleasant experience to relax and prepare for continuing the sites and shops.
Asked in a shop where to go forr coffee and get sent here.
