Coffee Break | Books & Brunch, Bruges

Not much had changed, which is all part of the charm; the quaint shops, abundance of churches and museums and cobblestone pedestrian streets.  As it was low-season, the streets were empty of tourists. Locals walked by, smiled and always said hello. It was so cold! I pretty much lived in my wool coat and barely removed my accessories.

When I happened upon Books & Brunch, I couldn’t quite believe my luck! Surrounded by literature in French, Dutch, German and English, I sipped several Flemish cappuccinos, indulged in a slice of home-made flan Brésilienne for breakfast and read a book.  Even the wallpaper in the bathroom resembles pages of a book. The clientèle all seemed to be regulars – chatting away to the lovely owner as orders for brunch and rather delicious coffee orders came in. It’s really calm, homely and unpretentious; just what one expects of a village café.
