“Nö Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Nice Place, but no service, no Credit cards. In a tourist place they have to accept cards otherwise you have too much cash carrying around and you are a victim of thieves.

“Excellent coffee house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Friendly, helpful service.
Very welcoming staff.
Good menu.
Tea served in the most unusual teapot - place teapot on top of glass ( not cup, as all will become apparent )
and watch the tea drain from bottom of pot into glass. Voila!

“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.
