This tea room was just across the street from our hotel. We had coffee and a hot chocolate and sat in the room at the front which was a bit like stepping back in time - very elegant and interesting. The coffee was excellent and so too was the hot chocolate - both were served with an assortment of sugars... More

My boyfriend and I visited here after reading such great reviews but, in all honesty, our experience was disappointing. We shared a waffle, a croissant and a Belgian bun, with fresh orange juice and tea. The food was fine but nothing special. The decor is quite nice inside but somewhat spoiled by the fact that our table was covered in... More

Sometimes you walk into the perfect place for the way you feel and what you want. Eclectic decor, efficient service and great food. We shared a Croque Monsieur and each had a lovely pot of tea. Nicely presented and very tasty. Their patisserie and breads looked amazing and you can order to take away at the front. Busy and bustling... More

After taking the early morning train ride from Ghent, our first stop in Bruges was at Carpe Diem. The cafe was very cute and warm on a rainy, cold morning. There was a fire in the fireplace that was very inviting. We both had waffles and they were amazing. My wife had the hot tea and it was very good.... More

Tearoom Carpe Diem lived up to its many glowing reviews. We were seated in the front room which was like eating in someone's 19th century parlor. The salmon baguette sandwich came with a generous amount of thick smoked salmon slices. The dessert waffle was delicious. Hot chocolate was served with a little slice of cake and an assortment of sugars.... More

After reading a few reviews we decided to check this place out and it is really superb! We had some coffee, juice,waffles and sandwiches! It was so delicious we even forgot to make photos of the food. The atmosphere is authentic, with lots of classic decor! A must visit in Bruges!!!
