No need for lengthy write-ups, this secret little place is just excellent and has an innovative menu full of quality , on-the-spot freshly prepared courses for all tastes. When in Brugge just go for it .

We stopped for a coffee break and they said we have to leave before noon if we are not ordering lunch. We had great espressos and mousse. Very clean and neat.

In quiet small street, with a little terrace. We had a very pleasant light lunch. Great quality products. Very kind service. Reasonable price (52 euros for 2)

We stumbled across this hidden gem while wandering slightly off from the usual tourist spots. We were looking for a light lunch with a local touch and we were not disappointed. We all chose salads of varying types and I can quite honestly say that mine was the best salad I have ever had, chicken with a lovely sweet curry... More

Merveilleux was seriously a highlight of our trip! Just what we were looking for, but so much better. We came back again the next day we were so taken with it. I would probably go every day the next time we go to Bruges. The two gentlemen who run the place are great-- come on people! They are European, don't... More

Good eatery, quality food with attention to detail. The owner's manner may not appeal to all, but I personally thought he was great. Some people reviewing on here need to toughen up ! How boring would it be if all our Hoteliers /restauranteurs were bland and "nice" all the time. Give me the occasional Basil Fawlty and this guy any... More

Happened upon this lovely cafe and was lucky enough to grab a table since nearly all were reserved. The salad with goat cheese and apples was surprising - the apples and goat cheese were baked with the salad on the side. The tastes were amazing. The tea was also quite good, especially the St Petersburg Kusmi tea. It was served... More

After ordering what seems not enough the owner was quite unfriendly to us. The food was quite good and the cook friendly. In our opinion it's overpriced: 19€ for a small lunch, 7€ for a piece of cake. The owner suddenly turned friendlier as we ordered more ... strange.

Beautiful! We were on the lookout for this little place, afternoon doing some research and thankfully stumbled across it down a side street. We had tea and a choice of two different cakes/tarts. Everything was delicious and due to be doing so delicate we did not rush through it therefore savouring the flavour. The tea was served in tin pot... More

This is a lunch/afternoon dining coffee salon. They do salads and pasta and pastries and ice cream and the food is fantastic. They only opened in December 09 but they are people who care about food and know food. It's down a little side street in Brugge. We had an absolutely gorgeous lunch there last Monday
