Service is ok. It was quiet when I was there so you'd expect service not to be to bad. My order came out wrong, they noticed and took it away and then tried to just bring it back and say, yes thats the one you...More

On the central square of Brugge, the terrace had a lovely view of the square. We ordered waffles as one does in Belgium and they were fantastic, even though they had run out of strawberries.
