This place has a fantastic selection of cakes and pastries, so beautiful and delicious that makes it really hard to choose. We have been to few restaurants and cafes in our stay in Bruges and unfortunately we have been quite disappointed by the average quality of food. This place really stands out, a must try for any sweet tooth. My... More

Out of all my delicious savourings the oscar goes out to Patisserie Academie. I succumbed to the charm and composition of this incredible dessert. I am an expert and this lemon pie, meringue , lemon verbena –sorbet is the symbol of KookEet as far as I’m concerned. A grand chefs piece of art combining quality products, savour, freshness, refinement and... More

We had a breakfast that was very good, but be ready to wait, it is a very busy place. The pastries are very good.

Bruges is heaven for foodies. I had a late lunch at Patisserie Academie publique. The place is in the center of Bruges and ideal for Breakfast, Brunch, lunch and tea. It is a busy restaurant, and when I tasted the pastry I knew why. It was delicious. Delicate and yummy. The waitress is also very warm and friendly. Love this... More

There was such a good selection of cakes and pastries it was difficult to make a choice and our selections tasted every bit as good as they looked. My husband enjoyed his hot chocolate which was rich but not sickly. The cakes appeared popular with locals who bought cakes to take home.

Not far from the Grote Markt, the central square of Bruges, you will find Academie, a spectacular pastry shop - coffee shop. It has amazing cakes, pastries, sweets, quiches and other delightful items. They also serve coffee and other beverages. I went in search of chocolate and found what they called a "Texture van chocolate". It was phenomenal, superb chocolate,... More

My friend and I shared a fruit panna cotta, a mille-feuilles, and a white chocolate and lime(?) mousse cake. My favorite is the panna cotta, which is simply delightful with a generous amount of fresh fruits. My friend liked the mille-feuilles the best. It's flaky and not overly sweet. The other cake we ordered has a kind of sour taste... More

I'm used to going here for a coffee and a breakfast but not sure when wine and beer appeared on the menu, or perhaps I wasn't looking when having a breakfast ! Great cakes and coffee all the food looks great. Don't miss this as a real gem
