“A wonderful discovery!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

The annoyance of not remembering to book breakfast with our hotel room turned into delight at the happy discovery of this little tea room. After a fruitless wander around central Bruges in search of breakfast we happened upon Carpe Diem and it quickly became our go-to for not just breakfast but an afternoon cup of tea and a sneaky piece of cake as well. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Breathtaking!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We were looking for somewhere for just a coffee and chances upon this place.

From the wood pannelled rooms, to the coffe served with a little cake and chocolate included this place is quite simply amazing.

Attentive staff add to the ambience making somewhere we will most certainly be returning to.

Unreservedly recommended.

“Dessert”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stopped here one afternoon for our first Belgian waffle and it did not disappoint. We were drawn in by the beautiful window display of French macarons but once inside I decided to go for the waffle while my husband had a beautiful pastry. The waffle just melted in the mouth. The owner served us and we had a pleasant time speaking with him. The decor in the room we were in was cozy with lots of wood. Further back we could see what looked like an atrium so there were different areas to sit.

“Came here after the "best waffles in bruges" search on Google!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Had a spaghettie bolognese and club sandwich, both perfectly passable.

The waffle was very good, definitely freshly made with nice portion of fruit and ice crea. Can't necessarily verify that it was the "best waffle" in bruges but was definitely very good!
