We had really yummy waffles here and there were lots of great-looking pastries to choose from too. The coffee would have been good if you order it black - the way they like it in Belgium. Alas, I ordered a cappuccino thinking that - because they were known for coffee and had all manner of beans to choose from -... More

We called in for lunch on Wednesday on a day trip to Bruges. The service was quick and friendly. My homemade hot chocolate with cream was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked and my omelette was fresh and flavoursome. I thought the tea room decor and the building was very impressive. It's not particularly cheap....but basically you... More

We popped in here for breakfast on our first morning in Brugge. It was pretty busy and only 1 waiter on. There is a really cute conservatory at the back so decided to sit down anyway as we were in no rush. We chose the carpe diem breakfast with with coffee and orange juice. It did come out in stages,...

We popped in for brunch on New Year's Day. It was very busy so the staff were probably a bit harassed. However, the decor is interesting with a conservatory style room at the back

We visited this tea room twice during our trip and both times it was great. We loved the pancakes and the coffee was excellent. We'll be coming back again

We came here for breakfast due to great reviews about their hot chocolate. We were excited to try famous Brugge hot chocolate. The place was full and popular. Interior is great, homey and vintage. Service was a little slow which is understandable as the place was full. We have ordered sandwiches and home made hot chocolates (~5 euro). Our expectations... More

Absolutely delicious and very filling way to start your day. The luxury breakfast is enormous - the peckish beware! It's busy but not offensively so (which is a relief when it's absolutely jam packed on the streets) with thoughtfully spaced seating. The baked goods were amazing.

We went to this restaurant for breakfast after seeing the reviews here in Tripadvisor and it was amazing. Our waiter was stressed, but still he was perfectly polite and took really good care of us. The whole atmosphere in the restaurant with the bakery attached is very nice and typical belgian. The food was very delicious and it was served... More

Like almost everywhere else in Bruges this place was very busy but the waiter was attentive and very helpful. Crepes were good standard if a little on the thick side. Good coffee.

We went to Carpe Diem and the waffles (gofres) are delicious with a home made chocolate. We also ordered a Croque-Madame it was a little dry, so we expected there was bechamel on it. I recommend to book a table in advance, so it's very busy.

Thank Xondetes
