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

We were randomly walking past this coffee shop, and the pastries and quiches and puddings looked so fresh and tempting, so we decided to ave our coffee break at this restaurant. Pros: Friendly waiters You can see and chose, making it easier Good seating Great food

We enjoyed a breakfast of fresh fruit salad and wonderful Croissants with fresh hot coffee served by friendly staff. Great atmosphere. What else can one say other than you should put it on your list of places to visit.

A truly amazing coffee shop and patisserie in the centre of Bruges. The only problem you'll have with the cakes is choosing only one! We also saw people having breakfast there, and we may well consider coming to this place on a future trip, rather than using the hotel buffet. Give it a go. You won't be disappointed.

Beautiful cakes and pastries which taste as good as they look. A little pricey but worth a visit. Service good. A good trade with locals coming to buy cakes to take home.

Have eaten here several times but our first visit since it became Patisserie Academie. Still very nice pleasant waitresses. bit dark interior painting now though. Patries and cakes are delicious, coffee very nice and a good selection of everything to choose from. Was disappointed though now that they charge an extra 1.50 euros to eat your cake inside, surely the... More

We found this cafe on our first day and returned several times. The cakes looked beautiful and tasted even better - rich but not sickly sweet. Good quality coffee and a friendly atmosphere. There are seats outside (quite a suntrap) as well as inside.

looked stylish and delicious from the outside and was matched on the inside. Service a lit chaotic as it was full all 3 times we went. Food was beautifully presented. The quality excellend and good value. You would be hard pressed not to like anything they sell.

There was a bit of a queue, but we got a seat and went to order food. The queue was because they sell cakes to take away, as a patisserie, as well as people at tables, so it took a while. But the hot chocolate was good, and the cakes were well worth the wait - delicious!
