Found this lovely cafe by accident whilst wandering round looking for an early evening light meal. We were made very welcome, and enjoyed very nice spaghetti bolognese and spaghetti with salmon.

If you like your waffles light and airy this is the one! Lovely traditional cafe with extensive choice including pancakes and other sweet treats. Well worth a visit.

We had walked around Bruges for a while and were desperate to find a nice cafe for our party of five, especially as one of our party is approaching 90. We were visiting Bruges on a cruise trip so just wanted a light snack. Four of the party had waffles and were blown away by them. I had the croque... More

It looked inviting from the outside so we've walked in. All we wanted was a hot drink - it was rather chilly and snowy day - and a light snack ... The waffles with sugar caught our eye. May I say these were not dense and stogy ones we get to enjoy in UK. Feather light, crisp on the outside... More

We were in Bruges for a few days and we had attempted to go to a different café for brunch on this day but were turned away because it was full! We came across this café and whilst not as highly rated as the one we had wanted to visit, we were not disappointed. We were a little worried as... More

Lovely place to stop for a snack and they do wonderfully light waffles and interesting salads. Right in the heart of the shopping area so a lovely place to rest from retail therapy

Had lunch here with my wife. Two salads and the cheese croquettes. Service was quick, portions sizable, and the food was very fresh, made with good ingredients. I suspect there are better lunch places in Bruges, but this did the trick.

Having visited one day we spent a good 45 minutes searching for the same cafe again the following day. The ready made hot chocolate is worth searching for. Waffles loaded with fruit and all served with a smile. This really is the place for a break and a cuppa, but I will stick to the chocolate.
