“Breakfast eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Great waffles in Bruges , I ask for syrup and they immediately told me Belgians do not put syrup on their waffles. Good breakfast place, but be aware they only take cash. good location for exploring the city.

“The Best Tea Room in Brugge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

This tea room was recommended, and we were not disappointed, when we visited recently whilst on a visit from the UK.
Gorgeous cappuccino, amazing Belgian Waffles and really friendly staff.
Fantastic and well worth a visit.

“A true gem of a place...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

We had breakfast at Gingerbread, 10/10.

It's the only place we visited in Bruge that we enjoyed, the staff are lovely and friendly. It's the first time I've left a review on trip advisor, only because we loved the place so much. The story behind the family is so sweet and lovely. The attention we received was amazing, and I would encourage everybody to visit gingerbread.

The farmers breakfast was superb - omelettes to die for.

“Very friendly, cosy lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Very friendly owners, they serve with a smile. I had the Bunnie Serrano (scrambled egg with Serrano ham) which was very nice and my GF had a Bunnie Salmon but as she doesn't like scrambled eggs, the owner happily provided some Philadelphia cheese.

Two weeks later we visited again for some cappuccino and cake. The coffee was good, the cake also, not wow, but tasty.
