Went there on recommendation of a friend and were not disappointed. Definitely best hot chocolate and waffles in the world.

It is primarily a bakery and tea room . Their chocolate shop is located across the road . They serve good coffee, pound cake . Apple cake. The hot chocolate was average - its DIY chocolate on the stick and one does not get the consistency of a good hot chocolate.

DIY hot chocolate with warm milk and chocolate on a stick! Plus chocolates on the side and extra chocolates, very nice!

A must stop on arrival in Bruges (usually after we have started at the crack of dawn from UK), for cake, coffee, hot chocolate and hand made Belgium chocs. The hot chocolate comes with a mug of hot milk, melted Belgium chocolate in a small jug and side dishes of whipped cream and some hand made choccies. The teens love... More

I have been going here each time I visit Bruges and it never disappoints. It is more coffee and cake for me but they have an excellent selection of tea as well. The cakes and accompanying chocolates (from Bruges Chocolatier Sukerbuyc) are fantastic. Air conditioning in summer and cosy fireplace in winter, friendly staff and if you go through to... More

This place serves amazing hot chocolate that you have to try no matter how hot it is outside! The hot drinks come with a sampling of Belgian chocolate. Note the tea room only does cakes and treats not sandwiches!

We had breakfast twice during our stay in Brugge. The homemade scones were lovely, but the pound cake was even better! Exquisite service: coffee/tea on individual trays with a few chocolates , scones with whipped cream, etc.

We had been recommended this place by friends. It is opposite their chocolate shop and the desserts are wonderful. My wife had tea but I was told to try the hot chocolate by our friends and I was glad I did. You get a cup of hot milk and a wooden spoon with a dark chocolate on the bottom, that... More

Tea-room “De Proeverie” is an extension of the famous chocolate shop “chocolaterie Sukerbuyc” located opposite, on the same street. It serves cakes and chocolate fantasies all made on the premises by family recipes. No waffles, pancakes or ice, instead you can savor a whole range of exquisite cakes while enjoying a coffee break by light baroque music.
