Restaurant details

Please don't just stop and look into the window! Please don't just wave at the chef! Having recently qualified as a pastry chef with Le Cordon Bleu London i can tell you this place is exactly what you should be looking for in classic patisserie with a modern twist and an eye for artisan detail. The modest handsome chef in the window is indeed an award winner with master level experience. The cakes are not expensive when you take into account the skill level, materials and the quality of not only the pastries but the ingredients. The pastries are delicious, well balanced in texture and flavour and cutting edge in their presentation and you will be received with a warm welcome which is not commonly found in many patisseries. The menu changes seasonally so whenever you choose to visit you will receive the very best! What are you waiting for?

Give this place a try and you won't be disappointed. Hand made desserts to die for ! Just eaten the most amazing individual lemon meringue pie ever. Prices are excellent value as well at approx 3 euros each . We found most other eateries over priced and lacking in variety in bruges and were so pleased we at least found a great dessert ! Thank you, we will be back tomorrow for more before we leave for home :-)

Discovered this pastry shop on a routine Bruges walk. The owners kindly allowed me to take photos so the folks back home could share one dimension of the craftsmanship. Quite simply these are easily the best pastries I've ever eaten. Sheer pleasure

After a great Italian lunch just a few shops down the street we happened upon the Academie...a small dessert/pastry shop. The black painted store front just draws you to look in at the beautiful presentation of desserts. One window is filled with desserts and the other you can watch the staff creating these treats. Upon entering we were greeted by the owner and two employees, dusty with powdered sugar and other ingredients, but overly joyous that we stopped in. Too many choices but went for a decadent eclair and brownies covered with a raspberry sauce. Oh my it was oh so good. The Academie, you would be "Smart" to stop and savour the creations.

I have been here several times to buy bread and pastries. The brownies are exquisite, my daughter loves them and so do I. It is a small shop near Jan Van Eyke square. Not open everyday but worth a visit without doubt. What a treat!
