We visit this shop every time we come to Bruges at Christmas. We have always had a very warm and welcoming experience. Gino is a such happy friendly smiley gent. The chocolate is also second to none so is a must on the to do list whilst we visit. Good luck with your new shop, we wish you all the very best. Hope to see you next December.

First visit to Bruges with my fiancé and had already selected shops to try for our chocolate purchases on Tripadvisor. This one is well deserved #1 as it’s beautifully presented, inviting and the chocolates are absolutely gorgeous! We bought a good selection to bring home for family. The owner was lovely and informative and made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend and return if we make another trip to Bruges. Keep up your fantastic work :-)

The chocolate shop is ran by a lovely family, who does not resell its product like many other shops in Belgium, but keeps it as a family business. By selling their own product, they put a lot of efforts, strength and heart&soul into making their own chocolates, this is what makes it special among other much advertised and marketed Belgian chocolates.
I bought 2 packs of assorted, couple of chocolate bars, truffles and bear shaped chocolate for a kid. When I got back home and tried them, I regretted I didnt buy much more!!!
By the way, considering that it's not heavily marketed brand, this shop chocolates are much more cheaper considering to all Neuhaus, Leonidas, Lindt and etc., so it is not only tastier, but you can buy more there for less price! ;)

Dear Madina, you have put a lot of effort into sharing your experience... It is because of lovely people like you who share their experience that we are so high rated on Trip Advisor. Thank you very much!!! Your beautiful words are much more important to us than earning a lot of money through mass production … We will continue to make a difference with our small-scale, artisan production. Thanks again and always welcome! Sofie & Gino :) :)

Came across this fantastic chocolate shop. The owner was so lovely. The shop is run by him and his wife and they make all the chocolate themselves.. they had the most beautiful lipsticks, wine bottles and shoes all moulded in chocolate. Fantastic gift ideas and gorgeous wrapping and packaging. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you!

The front of the shop is eye-catching.
The owner is genuinely hospitable and accommodating.
It's really nice inside, everything is creative and really made with love.
He made our souvenirs extra-special. It's highly recommended! Don't miss it!

We've just visited this great shop and had to help spread the word.
After seeing a few photos on Instagram, I thought this could be the place to get some souvenir chocolates that stood out from the myriad chocolate shops in Bruges.
The lovely couple who run this independent business are local to the area, handmadke all the chocolates, and present them all in an easy-on-the-eye way so you can clearly see what types and styles to go for.
The owner spoke excellent English, and took time to chat so we didn't feel rushed - as a tourist sometimes you feel just want the cash and don't really invest time in talking, so it was nice to find a friendly business to support.
He even thought about a plastic bag to use for us in the rain, which is a great nice touch.
Now....to eat the chocolates and enjoy!

Surely one of the best chocolate shops in Bruges and not to be missed. The owners are lovely and we chatted away with them on each of the 4 days of our stay. Chocolates here are wonderful and we bought a few boxes ( all put together of your own choice) to bring back for Christmas. That was the plan - but they have been eaten! Worth a visit 100%

Thanks for the nice review and the recommendation! It was our pleasure to welcome you several times in our store. We enjoyed your presence and enthusiasm. Our chocolate is made artisanally on a small scale, which is why they are irresistibly tasty 😉. We put the chocolate boxes in bags that we staple shut. (In that way you can resist them a little longer, but Christmas was probably too long) 😉 We wish you all the best and hope to see you soon. Gino & Sofie 😃😃

Myself and my husband visited this shop on a weekend away in Brugge yesterday. The lovely gentleman in the shop went out of his way to help us with the language barrier on the labels to decipher the ingredients. Thank you so much for your brilliant customer service. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Brugge.

The labels on our products are too small to list the ingredients in all languages. It is our duty to help clients with the translation and to provide all necessary information regarding allergens. Moreover, as owners of the store we like to give a good service. We also get a lot of appreciation for this as from you. Thank you very much for the lovely review and always welcome! Gino & Sofie 😃😃

This was our first trip to Bruges and we definitely enjoyed the chocolates. I am a lover of chocolate and this chocolate did not disappoint! We stopped in on a Saturday morning and Gino was working the shop on his own, he was clearly busy but still made the experience great. He gave great attention to everyone when it was their turn to pick their chocolates. Even though he was busy there was no pressure to pick out chocolates quickly. We brought chocolates home to family in the states and they loved them just as much as we did. These are amazing chocolates in many different flavors. It was a nice touch to include a card with the website so we could look at what chocolates we were eating once we got home.

Thank you very much for writing this fantastic review! It makes us very happy! We try to be present with 2 at the weekend to serve our customers. However, that morning my wife could not be there. We also have no staff to help us... We are pleased to hear that despite the many customers present, you had a great experience in our store. We are also happy to hear that your family in the states liked our chocolates. We wish you all the best and hope to see you soon. Best regards, Gino & Sofie 😃😃

This is perhaps the only chocolate shop where they make all their own products. Owned by a delightful couple who share the front and back duty. They not only make fabulous chocolate products but items of great fun and humor which are fun gifts. Both of them are great at suggesting other places to go that are not mainstream Brugge. You can accomplish two things here - great chocolate and a wonderful visit with them.

Thank you very much for this fantastic review! We feel so honored and you really make us happy! We are convinced of the saying: “Happiness is a product of an effort to make someone else happy”. We are happy that we could give you a pleasant experience in our chocolate store. We have therefore decided to work without staff, but to do everything ourselves. We love our job and we are happy with the many nice reactions from our customers. Thanks again and all the best! Gino & Sofie 😃😃
