“Nice place to chill and sip some lovely coffee”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

This coffehouse lies away from the noisy centre, which makes it ideal for a zen moment of coffee. Really enjoyed sitting there, chatting and drinking the Chai. That is a MUST TRY!

“A decent place for a quick break”
Reviewed 22 January 2012

This place has had rave (5-star) reviews on TripAdvisor and I really can't see why! Maybe some reviewers have very limited horizons or, given that this is an American-style coffee place in a quiet street in Bruges, maybe it has been highly-rated by homesick Americans!

Don't get me wrong, the cafe is clean, the two young Americans who were running it were chatty and friendly, and I can imagine that it is really buzzing in the summer - we were there in January. However, the panini that my partner had and the tuna wrap that I had were decent but not inspired. A perfectly decent place for a lunchtime snack but don't arrive with high expectations of haute-cuisine!

“Friendly and Reasonably Priced”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Great little coffee shop perfect for lunch. After trudging round for ages we were pleased to find this place. After spending 15 euros for one sandwich the previous day, it was nice to get two paninis and two drinks for 13 euros, a veritable bargain!

“Fab coffee, morning saviour”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

Loved this place, felt a bit sorry for the young girl who was there most days, she appeared a little low, but she made fab coffee, didnt eat there but think that was our mistake.
