Came to Carpe Diem as Trip advisor recommended it for having the best waffles in Bruges. I ordered a hot chocolate and a strawberry and chocolate waffle. My order was taken by a lady that didn't write it down, she then proceeded to shout across...More

Great little tearoom. We had breakfast/brunch here and had traditional Belgian waffles (the real kind I am told) which melted in our mouths. We had to wait a bit to get a table (we were a big group) but it seemed to be worth the...More

The tearoom was right across the street from our hotel so we planned to eat here from the moment we arrived in Bruges. We were not disappointed!

We enjoyed a Belgian brunch of waffles and hot chocolate. The service was great and the waffles light, crispy and exceptionally moreish - you'll want the recipe. A great cafe in a beautifully old Bruges house. Highly recommended.

If you only speak English, never go there. From the moment I arrived with my family I received a very poor service. A client even warned us that if we spoke Portuguese we would get a better service. It is a tourist town so good...More

Look out for this place or you'll miss it. The main waiter is multi lingual and fantastic with his advice and service. We had croque monsieurs and waffles, both were lovely, freshly cooked and very tasty.
