This small anonymous cafe is much larger than one thinks from the street. It's charming interior is accompanied by very friendly folk who serve delicious coffee and excellent fresh fare at very reasonable prices. The bagels in particular were soft, tasty, and best of all fresh - so much nicer than the stale or reclaimed from chilled/frozen ones normally found.... More

It is not very easy to find good coffee and a cosy place that is not stuffed with tourists - but here it is. Coffee was great, pastry (especially pastel de nata) was delicious and the atmosphere was really charming. A place to hang out for a bit and enjoy the less hectic part of your stay.

This venue in the city center of Bruges serves excellent coffee. The interior is somewhat eclectic, mixing differents styles, it doesn't feel harmoneous to me. But tehen again, a lot of coffee bars do, it's probably the concept. The line-up of bagels is limited but quality wise it's okay. The service is slow and I miss the hospitality attitude in... More

I found this place on the internet was looking forward to a great cup of coffee after reading good things about the place. The shop was busy with an older lady making the coffee and a young man who simply ignored us when we came into the shop, after waiting a while and unsure of the ordering process i thought... More

If you want to 'down tools' read a book, drink a coffee and just sit, then this is the place. Best coffee I had while I was there and the chocolate brownie was awesome.

Quick and friendly service of great bagels and coffee in a fun and quirky environment. A really nice place and a great change from some of the tourist trap tearooms in Bruges. The staff were very engaging too.

Good bagels and hot lattes. Delicious food, great atmosphere, friendly service. All you can ask for in a day-starter or mid-day break.

We are proud to serve honest and great coffee and tea. We make our own iced tea and iced coffee. And we even invented our lemonade (called the Li O Nade...) We also serve a small selection of local beers. Located in al ancient house that belonged for half a century to painter Roger Gobron. Funky & jazzy latin music...
