This place has a great fancy vibe as soon as you walk in. Which is reflective of the price. It seems to be frequented by locals though which adds authenticity.

Service was excellent, which is what brought the stars up. There was an issue with my pancakes, but that was remedied instantly and a replacement came out. Waitress was very apologetic which was appreciated.

However the waffle was a bit light and dry, I don’t know if that’s authentic waffles or not, but we didn’t have it this light anywhere else we tried waffles in Bruges. The butter and Nutella came on the side and it was up to you to put it on. Expect a bit of self service, which is good if you are particular on how much you want on it.

This is not your typical tourist 'waffle trap'. The waffles are 'non-greasy' as mentioned by a previous reviewer and I definitely got the impression that it was a place frequented by locals.
The staff were quietly attentive and courteous. A wonderful place to sit in the window and watch the world go by.

First of all it is nice to come in and receive a gentle welcome combined with a friendly service. I went in early for a delightful coffee, during lunch time decided to come back and go for the lunch. Again it tasted really good and fresh with a classy and good service.
Definetly a winner ! Lovely place

Terrible service. Croquette with smelly shrimps. Returned immediately, but still got it in the bill. Was told it’s the taste of fresh Belgium shrimps and in Belgium you ordered you pay. Tried to explain customers could return their food and was told to shut up.

Good environment. I’m sure people will enjoy it when having no complications. But be prepared if you are the unlucky one.

Visited Bruges just before Christmas, and was recommended to go here by a number of people. It didn't let us down, in fact we had to come back the day after as we enjoyed it so much! The waffles were fantastic, light and fresh, with a wide selection of toppings. A great way to start the day in Bruges!
