“Don't miss this it's a real gem!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Tucked away in the centre of Bruges it has the warmest of welcomes, the menu is simple but delicious and clearly put together with quality ingredients and much care. The staff (a family) work hard at ensuring you have everything you need. From the coffee to the scrambled eggs to the service it was a real delight so much so we went each morning of our stay for breakfast. Advise you book though to avoid disappointment.

“Gingerbread Tea Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We wanted to come here for brunch, but they stop serving breakfast at 11:30 and start serving lunch at 12 so we ended up eating lunch here. We were not disappointed. They don’t have a big selection but if you like soup, quiche, and bagel sandwiches, you’ll like it here. I ordered a bagel with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. It was delicious, and I must say they were the best scrambled eggs of my life. Our server was a sweet elderly lady who made sure we were satisfied. She was adorable. My sandwich served with a side salad cost 8 euros. I will certainly return!

“Lovely place to grap a cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is such a nice place to sit and drink some tea. I also enjoyed the lovely cake. There are different choices and they're homemade! The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Love this place!
