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

So many places in Bruges claim to be a tea-room but so few capture the quiet gentility that requires like this one does. We had a lovely afternoon tea here. The lady who served us was very helpful and the whole place had a lovely atmosphere. I would definitely recommend their "taster plate" which has a variety of different chocolates... More

We wanted to experience this place for breakfast we arrived at 11.15 and got welcomed at 11.20 and told us we couldnt get breakfast because they close at 11.15 5 minutes to receive last clients Sorry but as good service they shouldnt refuse for 5 min late of closing kitchen . Bad customer service !

We admit it, we needed a rest room. We ducked into this small, cozy tea room and it was one of the highlights of our whirlwind day in Bruges. We sat in the back with a nice fire in the grate, thankful to use the facilities and sit for awhile. The waitress was helpful, the pastries delicious, and the coffee... More

Found this years ago and we visit every time we are in Bruges. Try the hot chocolate as lovely and all drinks come with chocolates. Coffee is also superb. Not the cheapest but worth it and the cakes are fab

We visited here for a hot chocolate and to escape the rain. The cafe is small but cosy and the staff were friendly. The hot chocolates were excellent - a chunk of chocolate on a wooden spoon to melt in hot milk along with cream and a few small chocolates, all for €4.50. Note: cash only.

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.
