This really is a lovely little modern cafe, the food is excellent, so nice to have such beautiful prepared salads and homemade soups. Their hot chocolate is to die for......The two guys who run this place work so hard to give such excellent service. we always visit Tonka several times on every trip to Bruges.

We eat here several times when we visit Bruges. Honestly the coffees are wonderful and such a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Soup, great and fresh.

The waffles with hot cherries and cream are our fave's.

Just try them, the waffles are so light in texture that they melt in the mouth.

Also the pana cotta that accompany the coffees are a real treat.

Can't wait to go back there.

Excellent for a coffee (with which you get both a biscuit and a little pot of panna cotta) as well as light lunches such as salads.

This is easily the nicest establishment in Bruges. It's not fancy, some at first might even think it looks too modern and cold. In reality it is a lovely respite from the masses of tourists. This restaurant cares about having good food, and gives nice little bonus touches. With the tea (large selection, and no Lipton unlike all the other places) they give you both a little cookie and a small cup of tonka pudding, which is delicious, like vanilla but more wonderful. We had soup and a salad here, both served with fresh bread, both were delicious. Unlike every other place in Bruges it was not overpriced. I can't say enough good things about this little, unassuming place. Maybe because I was so happy to find something with heart, and un-touristy. Go, and try the tonka!

Stumbled upon this waiting to go on the brewery tour. Great little snack bar/restaurant, great quality and service and easy on the purse too! Highly recommend the soup and smoked salmon salad, the waffles also looked amazing
