Coffee shops are an indispensable part of every significant square or main street. Bruges is no exception, because there are awesome coffee shops just everywhere. Fine espresso, fluffy cappuccino or milky latte – in Bruges you can get everything in local coffee shops. But besides the big and famous ones, it is also possible to find those cozy, relaxed and romantic places hidden in old buildings in the side streets. Let´s check the list of the finest coffee shops in Bruges that are not in sight. Here are my favorite places to enjoy quality time with your lover or just enjoy your coffee by yourself.
- I Love Coffee
Beautiful view into the garden, lovely decoration, kind staff. One of the biggest advantages of this shop is definitely the people in there: they know your coffee and they will prepare it in the most perfect way. There’s also a wide offer of desserts – ice cream, cakes, cookies and so on – that definitely matches with the exclusive coffee. The interior decoration is full of details and the atmosphere is just awesome.
Address: Sint-Jakobsstraat 10
Opening hours: every day from 8am-6pm
- Li O Lait
This place is located between two main shopping streets – close from everywhere, but still a little bit hidden. If you get here, definitely try mocha latte with chocolate. Except for delicious coffee you can also get special beverages like matcha tea or homemade lemonade. Awesome pastry and friendly staff. Very suitable for nice moments with two. Or with a book or listening to the good music in there. Very reasonable prices.
Address: Dweersstraat 30
Opening hours: 9am-5.30pm. Sundays: 9am-2pm. Closed on Sundays
- Vero Caffè
If you are looking for a nice and comfy place, Vero Caffè is the right choice. Except for a lovely interior, you can use the outdoor terrace to enjoy your coffee and see people passing by the Sint-Jansplein. Also try their special offers like special espresso or delicious chai latte. All you need is to ask the always nice and friendly staff.
Address: Sint-Jansplein 9
Opening hours: 11am-6pm. Closed on Thursdays
The last one in this list, but definitely not the last one in Bruges is another cozy place with beautiful interior decoration. Feel-good atmosphere with a nice and friendly staff. They serve tasty muffins and bagels. You can sit outside while enjoying each other’s company, or just work inside while enjoying your delicious coffee.
Address: Academiestraat 8
Opening hours: 8.30am-5.30pm. Saturdays and Sundays 9am-6pm. Closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays
Important notice: always watch the opening hours because coffee shops in Bruges used to close around 5 or 6pm.
