“My kind of place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2006

I walked into the Brooderie and loved the smallness, the family atmosphere, and the wonderful bread. With the exchange rate of the Euro, I really enjoyed the price as well. I stayed above the restaurant in a very spacious room. The breakfast was fantastic in the home style way. It was incredibly convenient to the downtown. I have since taken my family back for the food.

  • Liked — Friendly, local flavor, food
  • Tips/Secrets — It is not luxurious if that is what you are looking for. This is a Back Door type of location.

The Brooderie is a café/restaurant and breadshop, plus on the 1st and 2nd floor are bed &breakfast rooms. Price for a double room, including breakfast in march 2005 = 65 euro. Monday closed, then price for room without breakfast = 56 euro.
The location is excellent, the breakfast is OK. Guests share the toilets with the public of the cafe (open at 8.00/closes at 18.00).
Main problem is that it is thin-walled: Many traffic-sounds + you hear music from the cafe below + you are sure to wake up when guests in the other room just walk.
Personally, It did not feel as a warm welcome that on arrival the heater was NOT on, while it was snowing and freezing 10 degrees below Celsius.

Conclusion: it is OK, but you can find a better place for this price.
