My wife and I bought sandwiches at Carpe Diem. They were the best we have ever tasted...anywhere. When we go to Bruges again, we will certainly go to this quaint place and feast ourselves on their lovely sandwiches.

We visited this tearoom almost every day of our stay in Bruges. It is amazing! Attached to a bakery, all the bread, croissants and cakes were super fresh and top quality. It is very popular and you understand why when you order the waffles. They are sensational, especially the chocolate sauce and ice cream or with strawberries.

Went into Carpe Diem for breakfast on Sunday morning. A lot of cafes were still closed. Beautiful interior (they have also a bakery) and really So many choices for breakfast, including different teas and coffees. We had waffles with melted chocolate and they were the best waffles I ever had, freshly made. Tea is served with a small cake, very... More

Went there for breakfast alone. Was seated for about 15 minutes before the server came to take my order. 2 Couples who arrived after me had ordered and already received their meals at this point. Some people at the next table noticed this and were visibly becoming uncomfortable as I was visibly becoming irritated!! Eventually my order was taken and... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The setting, in their terrace is lovely and peaceful. But neither of those things are as good as the food. Which. Is. Amazing! Try the homemade hot chocolate which is fun to do and tastes fantastic. Then, I had the banana, ice cream and chocolate pancakes which were easily the best thing I've ever... More

Great selection of cakes, waffles and pancakes. Coffee selection to suit all tastes, fresh and good value. Can get very busy for breakfast, luckily our hotel was on a few 'steps' away. Staff are helpful and pleasant.

A capsule of the best of Old Europe. Worth booking ahead for a table in the panelled front room. Elevates simple cafe food and drink to a real mini treat.

We had heard this was one of the best places in Bruges for waffles and we weren't disappointed! Amazing waffles served with hot chocolate to pour over, delicious. The coffee is lovely too and is served with a little chocolate and small portion of cake. We had lunch here one day too which was also great. Highly recommend when in... More

I came, I saw, I took away, I Loved. The range of cakes and bread is nothing short of fantastic. I only purchased some fruit loaves to bring back to the UK. They were lovely and fresh and a welcome partner for a cup of tea. Staff were friendly and the shop looked clean. Tea room was busy. Would I... More
