Wow! This is a place to get to for lunch in Bruges. We tried to come here the previous day but didn't have reservations and were unable to sit down, so we made reservations the next day. (Note: They only serve lunch from 12-2, breakfast from 8:30-11:30, and just tea/snacks after lunch time) We couldn't have been happier with our meal. First, the place is just lovely with a delightful ambiance about it. The staff is also super friendly. We shared all of our dishes, the bagel with egg and smoked salmon (on a deliciously toasted homemade bagel), a quiche with spinach and ricotta cheese, and a goat cheese and chive spread on bread with a green tomato jam sauce. Each meal to itself was scrumptious. The portions were sizable as well. We each loved our meals so much and were sorry we couldn't come back again. The restaurant was full and most of the other customers ordered a huge peach and ham salad that looked amazing! The price is just right with the main courses between 10-13 Euros. There is a wide selection of teas, waffles, pancakes, and deserts as well--but we were too full to try the other food items. I highly recommend the Gingerbread Tea Room for a great lunch in Bruges!

Great waffles in Bruges , I ask for syrup and they immediately told me Belgians do not put syrup on their waffles. Good breakfast place, but be aware they only take cash. good location for exploring the city.

This tea room was recommended, and we were not disappointed, when we visited recently whilst on a visit from the UK.
Gorgeous cappuccino, amazing Belgian Waffles and really friendly staff.
Fantastic and well worth a visit.

We had breakfast at Gingerbread, 10/10.

It's the only place we visited in Bruge that we enjoyed, the staff are lovely and friendly. It's the first time I've left a review on trip advisor, only because we loved the place so much. The story behind the family is so sweet and lovely. The attention we received was amazing, and I would encourage everybody to visit gingerbread.

The farmers breakfast was superb - omelettes to die for.

Very friendly owners, they serve with a smile. I had the Bunnie Serrano (scrambled egg with Serrano ham) which was very nice and my GF had a Bunnie Salmon but as she doesn't like scrambled eggs, the owner happily provided some Philadelphia cheese.

Two weeks later we visited again for some cappuccino and cake. The coffee was good, the cake also, not wow, but tasty.
