We were so happy to come across this restaurant! Great food, good prices, and extremely charming atmosphere and decor. The Harry Potter butterbeer latte is easily the best hot drink I've ever had. Not to miss while you're in Bruges!

Great spot for a nice brunch meal out of the way of the crowds. I'd highly recommend it for kids as well-they were great at accommodating us.

Great concept and beautiful cafe with really special atmosphere. Good range of breakfasts, including vegan options - but the portions were small and it was very overpriced for what it was! Would recommend going for a coffee instead, but still worth visiting!
