Can anyone recommend cheap places to eat in bruges?

Hi

Can anyone recommend cheap places to eat for lunches and dinners in bruges? We don't mind walking a bit off the tourist track.

Many thanks

How "Cheap" is "cheap"? What is your budget?

Budget of about 5 to 7 euros each for lunch and 10 to 12 euros each for dinner. Just single courses including a drink. Thanks.

Hi

To elaborate on EastYorksCpl post.

Hema is a department store on Steenstraat, see the map below. The cafe on the first floor is great value and is packed with locals. Well worth a visit if you are on a budget.

FNAC is a music store on the Markt, they have a cafe on the 2nd floor that is good value.

The chip wagons on the Markt at the foot of the Belfort are also great for fries and fried bits.

Below are a few more reasonable cafes:

Notting Hill in the Zilverpand

Prestige on Vlamingstraat

De Republiek on Sint-Jacobstraat

Délisa on Jan van Eyckplein

Bars will do things a little more substantial, spag bol and the like (around the €9 - €10 mark), a couple of reasonable places are:

De Belleman on Park

Estaminet on Park

Terrastje on Genthof

Wish I'd have thought of looking on here last week.. just back from a trip and everywhere seemed so overpriced.. most places seemed to be at least €15 for one course. beware!

There are also a couple of branches of Subway, a Quick Burger (McDonalds type establishment), various bakeries / places to get a sandwich to take away.

Finally, if you are there on Saturday morning or Wednesday there is always the option of something like spit roast chicken and potatoes from a market stall.

Thanks all for the suggestions, really helpful info.

Have managed to find some nice reasonably priced places near the park. Belleman pub is good for cheap snack food.
