After a busy car journey, just off the motorway, you drive into the beautiful, wooded area where our hotel is located… You check in with our reception staff who are always ready to welcome our guests with a smile. And then, what do you think of when you hear the name Bruges? The belfry, the canals, T’Zand,… But next to these beautiful sights, I would like to show you the 5 most trendy food and drink hotspots Bruges has to offer!
Have a coffee in Cafuné
Between the belfry and the Jan Van Eyck square you can find the must visit coffee bar of Bruges, Cafuné. This coffee bar is so unique because they are the only ones to serve honest and short-chain coffee of a very high quality. Each cup is perfectly prepared by their passionate baristas. On top of that, they offer daily fresh delicacies that you can either eat on the spot or take away.
Romantic tapas sharing in Cookies
In the smallest street of Bruges, you go back to the jazz age at Cookies. They have a mix of Belgian, Spanish and Italian tapas to share with a nice glass of wine. This unique and romantic setting certainly deserves a visit.
Interior shopping and Oreo milkshakes at Balthasar
Want to buy some nice gadgets as a souvenir of your trip to Bruges? Be sure to pop into Balthasar. In addition to its fun stuff, this hip interior design shop has a few small tables where you can enjoy delicious freak shakes, donuts, waffles, sandwiches, … Ideal for a cold winter day!
Visit Dominique Persoone
It sounds very cliché, but in Bruges, you have the most eye-catching chocolate shops in the country. Dominique Persoone’s The Chocolate Line is the absolute front runner of this. In his expedition store at the Simon Stevin Square, you can admire the whole process from the tree to the chocolate bar itself. Moreover, there is a trendy shop where you can let yourself go.
Tasting cookies grandmothers’ style at Maison La Confiance
Finally, I would like to take you to the grandmothers’ biscuits at Maison La Confiance. This shop in the Wollestraat is an open bakery where you can find the most delicious biscuits without preservatives or colouring agents. Apart from the Bruges specialties such as Bruges cobblestones and biscuits, you should definitely try their homemade speculoos and chocolate spread!
