I really wanted to visit this tea house after seeing the bagels on TripAdvisor. We tried to go here on a Tuesday but we quickly found out that it is closed on Tuesdays (open every other day!). So we went on Thursday for breakfast. I am not sure if the place has recently changed hands but they no longer do... More

Delightful place, owner and hot chocolate. Visited on my own to warm up and had the loveliest treat. I had the gingerbread hot chocolate served with marshmallow and Chantilly cream (5.5e) and it was wonderful. Decor is lovely. Atmosphere relaxed and friendly, felt very relaxed on my own watching the world go by. Will definitely go back on my next... More

After not realising it was closed, we decided to make a return visit and go when it was open. It was our last morning in Bruges. We went got the savoury and sweet options, and split them. The cream cheese and jam was absolutely to die for - portions were huge and it hit the spot. Prices were reasonable, to... More

We enjoyed an earl grey tea and a chocolate tea with cute little cakes (complimentary) in this busy little place, it seemed to be locals which is always a good sign in a tourist trap. Appreciate the recommendations we were given for breakfast as they were closed the next day.

Just the perfect place to spend a little time to enjoy a beautifully presented Hot Chocolate and a bacon Omelette on a bagel. A small but perfectly located tea house, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the Market sq to allow you to relax, but not to far from all that Bruges has to offer.

We didn't have a reservation, but popped in to this very busy and brilliantly run cafe for afternoon tea. Polite beyond belief (even the beautiful lady with stunning make up behind the counter 😉) We were given free cake (which was really tasty) and had a nice chat about the madness of the Christmas market. Would strongly suggest popping in... More

A lovely place with a fantastic atmosphere and the kindest of services. Oh, and of course great food (amazing bagels) and very big portions.

Went here for some lunch as had seen the good reviews. It definitely lived up to these, we both had bagels which had lots of filling, and a lovely side salad. The lady in the cafe was really friendly and helpful too. Fairly good value for money, most of the bagels were between €10-13

Visited this cosy, family run cafe for breakfast. I had the poppyseed bagel with scrambled eggs and my wife had the sesame seed bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Both were simple and delicious. We ordered coffee which arrived with a complementary small cake. Nice touch. Bruges can be expensive but we found this cafe good value for money.... More

Great food. Would recommend the egg and salmon bagel. Wife had the more expensive ham and egg bagel which was tasty too. Decent portion sizes! Kids had waffles which were very nice but may be not the best in Bruges..but then again there is so much competition. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Would come again for breakfast
