“Best Hot Chocolate EVER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Having seen Belgium chocolate sweets being made over the road from the Tea Rooms, I decided to try their only chocolate export to the De Provevre Tea Room with a Hot Chocolate. Well, a quite unique experience with a cup of hot milk on a tray with melted chocolate to drizzle into the cup balanced by three chocolate wafer crisps - one of each - dark, milk and white and a home made chocolate with a hazelnut centre. The melted chocolate I could have had just by itself it was so delicious.
To the side was also fresh whipped cream to add to the top of the rather delicious cup of hot chocolate. Great service as well and the Tea Rooms have great ambience.As you would expect, Tea and coffee are also on the menu as are a delicious selection of cakes. I counted at least 5 camera flashes during our spell in the Tea Room of visitors to Bruge taking a picture of the front cake display in the front window. WELL WORTH A VISIT and if you can see the sweets being made over the road then much the better.

“The Best Hot Chocolate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

If you are looking for luscious melted chocolate mixed with hot milk and fresh whipped cream with a selection of Belgian chocolates on the side De Proeverie is the place to stop.

Sheer indulgence! The cakes looked delicious too, but concentrated on the chocolate this time.

This was my second visit to De Proeverie. Next time I am in Bruges I will definitely stop by.

So glad we found this little gem! Hot chocolate made the Belgian way. A whole experience in a cup. And a little plate of chocolates on the side. Such a treat!

“Chocolate/Coffee Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

Oh my! We've never had a coffee like this! Not into chocolate but apparently the hot chocolate is also to die for!!! This is a very pretty tea room but we were not prepared for the coffee we received. Our coffee shops need to take note - presentation was superb. Each coffee was served on a small tray with doyley, coffee in cup to the right, small dish of swirled cream to the right, behind these dishes was another dish containing a round of dark chocolate, one of white chocolate, another of milk chocolate and a chocolate treat and a serviette! Beats any of our coffee shops into a top hat! Service excellent to top all of that. We did make more than one visit!!
