Unlike the previous review, I had an excellent experience at Chocolaterie de Burg. I walked in at 7:00, as the store was closing and the owner stayed open late to allow me and my friend to shop and to sample chocolates. I visited many Chocolateries in Brugge, and this was one of the few that had samples, which was a big plus. The owner engaged us in conversation, told us about her family business and took extra care to wrap up the chocolates I bought. I also found her prices for chocolates to be one of the least expensive in Brugge (and Brussesls and Ypres for that matter). A box of mixed filled chocolates was 4.75 Euros for 250 grams. That was definitely on the low end of what I paid. At another chocolaterie in Brugge, I paid 7.75 for chocolates of the same weight and they were not as good. Did I mention the quality of the chocolates? I sampled much chocolate in my trip to Belgium and this was hands down the best chocolate I ate. As I have given chocolates to friends on my return home, they also agreed that these, as one friend stated, were the "best chocolates" they have ever eaten. Whitman's Sampler, move over. I highly recommend this shop. It's a family run business, it's been in Brugge for a long time and most importantly, the chocolates are delightful. I wouldn't miss this store if you are in Brugge!

This "chocolaterie" is located in one of the main squares in the city centre, just steps away from the Markt. What to say about? My experience was absolutely negative.
I was there with my wife to buy a couple of gift confections of chocolates. On a counter there was a degustation plate with small pieces of scrambled chocolates, in different flavours. Before buying, my wife tasted one or two pieces, in order to chose her favourite flavours but when the owner (I think she was the owner, a not young lady, anyway) realized I was approaching my wife, fearing I was there to taste the chocolate too, she abruptly took away the plate...(so stingy!)
Another hitch at the moment to pay: I should have paid 15 euros for two small confections, so I gave a 50 euros banknote to the cashier and she gave me 25 euros as change. Probably she was very weak in Maths because when I claimed 10 euros back, instead of mending his mistake and begging pardon, she looked perplexed and called the older lady who, finally, gave me back my ten euros, in a very rude way...(rather than to say "sorry" she shouted at me: DO YOU UNDERSTAND?)
The last "incident": before going away, my wife took a small business card from a pile on the cash desk; obviously, she thought it was free, it should be a sort of advert for the shop, but, unexpectedly, the old lady stopped my wife and asked 30 cents for the card: unbelievable!!
Last but not least, walking around the city, soon after our purchases, we realized, unfortunately too late, the other shops of chocolate were absolutely cheaper!
