We went to this place with high expectations based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews on tripadvisor. In reality, the tea room served medium quality patisserie and drinks (possibly slightly worse than what you would get in central London) except the price reflected something far more exciting. Also, this place was cash only. I would not recommend this to anyone except... More

We had read good reviews about this place and wanted to try it out, but we were greeted by a very rude member of staff who told us that they couldn't reserve a table for us, and that the only table not currently occupied had been reserved... The irony. It might have been because we had a baby with us,... More

After a very long day shopping we came across this wonderful tearoom by looking in the window of the chocolate shop over the road. "Sample the chocolates over the road" said the sign on the window. So we did. Inside is very quaint. There was a cosy fire, which heated the room to just the right temperature for a November... More

The best English Tea I've ever had on the continent (other than taking my own). The cakes are to die for & the chocolate samples from the shop across the road hold some surprises.

Probably the best cakes and coffee that we had in Bruges. Made several visits and all the cakes were amazing. It was a lovely bonus to get handmade chocolates as well with your coffee. If you like cakes, chocolate and coffee this is a must visit cafe. Service was excellent as well!

Visited this tea room with my husband. Note: make sure to have cash as it doesn't accept cards. The place has 2 fireplaces which we were sat next to (nice and toasty). Hot chocolate was €4.50 and comes with mini chocolates which was a nice touch. We tried the Michael Angelo cake which was delicious and not too sweet. We... More

On mine and my boyfriends list of things to do while in Brugge having a traditional hot chocolate was on top of the list (for me anyway...). We researched the best place to go and Tea-room De Proeverie came up at the top! The tea room is very cute and full of character! When our hot chocolates arrived we were... More

This is a gorgeous tea room! It's not far away from the lake of love and near the fantastic academie hotel. It has very friendly staff and is gorgeous in the inside. It's very cosy on a cold day. They have an excellent selection of drinks and food at very good prices. Every day of my visit I purchased and... More

We always call in here for a hot chocolate and coffee whenever in Brugge. The selection of homemade cakes and scones are delightful of course not forgetting the chocolates!

Tea-room "De Proeverie" is an extension of the famous chocolate shop "chocolaterie Sukerbuyc" located opposite, on the same street. It serves cakes and chocolate fantasies and waffles, all made on the premises by family recipes. No pancakes or ice, instead you can savor a whole range of exquisite cakes while enjoying a coffee break by light baroque music.
