We visited here for breakfast last Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it! The food portions were more than generous and it was lovely! The bagels were wonderful as were the scrambled eggs! I just wish we had chance to go back.

Some times I really don't understand Tripadvisor recommendations. This is typical such place. As it was ranked no 1 in Bruges, and just a short walk from my hostel I went here for breakfast. Yes, the place has a identity, the service level is ok but nothing extra ordinary, and the food...well, my omelette was below avarage. It was just... More

Loved this little coffee shop. We had breakfast (I highly recommend the salmon bagel or the waffles with chocolate sauce). They do amazing hot chocolates made with REAL chocolate and decent coffee. The service here was great- so friendly and warm. Option to sit inside or outside and it's easy to find as it's close to the main square in... More

Visited a few times. Lovely cafe with a warm welcome and good knowledge of gluten free needs. Great coffee and lovely gluten free cake that was most welcome.

What a cute little place. Can't tell by the display as to how delicious the food is but it's lovely and the portions are substantial. My husband had an omelette and bacon bagel. The filling was coming out of the bagel and was delicious. I had a plain cream cheese one and that did not disappoint. We also got hot... More

Came here to sample one of Bruges' famous waffles, and wasn't disappointed. Prices very reasonable considering that it's right off the main Markt square, with wonderful friendly service. The bagels looked amazing too. Recommended!

I enjoyed a meal with my friend in that lovely place. The food was excellent (a salmon bagel with cream cheese). Because it was before 11:15, it was still in the "breakfast" section, which meant less expensive (but still quite large a portion). My friend ate a sweet bagel with jam and butter. The real surprise was not so much... More

I dragged my boyfriend here because I loved the look of the place and the good reviews enticed me. The food was fab. We ordered a cream cheese bagel and fruit salad and crepes with lemon and sugar. Both staff members were incredibly polite and friendly. Lovely place to people watch.

Quirky little place off the main square. Had waffles and ice cream for breakfast (when in Bruges) and was delicious! Service was great, very friendly. Would definitely recommend.
