Description: This is a lunch/afternoon dining coffee salon. They do salads and pasta and pastries and ice cream and the food is fantastic. They only opened in December 09 but they are people who care about food and know food. It's down a little side street in Brugge. We had an absolutely gorgeous lunch there last Monday

“Not welcome with a stroller”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

When my pregnant wife our sun, one year old in stroller, and me arrived, the owner of the place came out and without any apologies he ordered us to leave as we would take to much of his space on the terrace. What a terrible way to handle your customers. Never seen such an impolite restaurant owner. Sending away a pregnant lady and a hungry baby. What a rude, aggressive ignorant stupid guy. I am not telling the truth if i was saying i didnt have other words for it.. Hope they will go bankrupt soon.

PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THIS DISGUSTING PLACE!

“Excellent little find”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Thanks to the Bruges guide we came across this lovely little coffee shop. We would never have thought to go there otherwise, as it was a little side street off from the high street. We had cappuccino which came with a shot glass of delicious chocolate mouse, and also had couple of their gorgeous dainty cakes. They also serve other food - snacks and lunch etc.

“Very classy menu”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is a small bistro - a little off the beaten track. We went twice and everything was perfect: a warm goat's cheese and caramelised apple salad, and the best hot chocolate imaginable. It also serves food all day (well between 11 and 6) which is very civilised for the tourist.

“looked expensive, but turned out to be good value..”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Lovely tea house with excellent service, we went twice, the first time we thought the hot chocolate was expensive at around 9 euro's, but it arrived on a tray in a silver pot, accompanied by a home made buiscuit, and a shot glass of delicious chocolate mousse, it was gorgeous thick and frothy rich hot chocolate, probably the best I have ever had! we went back the next day, and shared two small home made frangipane and clafoutis tarts, which were very pretty, and again delicious! it is very busy here,because it is a lovely place for a treat!

“Best Hot Chocolate I Have Ever Had”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

My husband, friend and I came into this place fifteen minutes before closing. We were cold and foot sore from walking all day. We had heard that this place had the best hot chocolate and were hoping to try it. Unsure if we would be served, we were told that they could give us three hot chocolates in that time if that was all we wanted.

It was lovely! The service was attentive and elegant even though we had showed up right before closing. The hot chocolate that was served held up to its reputation as rich, thick and delicious.

Despite our late arrival, they held to their standards and the presentation was wonderful. At the high end of the hot chocolate price range, you like a bit more effort put into your order. They did just that. Silver pot of hot chocolate, little serving of cold chocolate mousse on the side. . . . lovely! Thank you very much!

If you have been walking a lot and would like a real treat, this is the place to go for a pot of hot chocolate.

They have outdoor seating - but it was winter and slightly drizzly. I am sure it's wonderful in nice weather.
