Bruges is famous for its well-preserved historic buildings, but a visit to bagel salon Sanseveria is a major trip-down-memory-lane, too. Enjoy a sweet or savoury bagel – our favourite is the one with smoked salmon, goat cheese, dill and walnuts – between the bowstring hemps and vintage furniture and watch the locals passing by. Can’t make it to Bruges soon? As of this summer, you can find them in Ostend, too!
Predikherenstraat 11, 8000 Bruges
Cafuné is Portuguese for ‘the act of running your fingers through your lover’s hair’, and a visit to this coffee bar feels quite alike. Cafuné hasn’t been around for long, but the place has already proven its value in the coffee scene of Bruges. Which can be explained by their aim for high quality; the coffee is roasted in Belgium; the cakes are homemade and the charming hosts Elliott and Maaike serve you with a smile. If those reasons don’t persuade you to pay them a visit, the following reason might will: as from now on, it’s also possible to enjoy your daily espresso, cortado or latte macchiato in a Journuit sofa over there!
Ruth Niville fell in love with the building of her future clothing store from the moment she first saw it. So when it finally went up for sale, she didn’t hesitate and decided to pursue her lifelong dream of owning her own clothing store. It’s a good thing some people dare to follow their dreams, as Boetiek Ruth is one of the finest fashion gems in Bruges (not only interior-wise!) that sells sophisticated brands like Humanoid, Sessùn and Yerse. We dare you to go inside and nót buy something.
