Breakfast in Bruges, lots of options!

Nomad Brugge

Located at ‘t Zand in the centre of Bruges, we find the trendy restaurant ‘Nomad’. The sleek Norwegian interior, the covered terrace and the half-open kitchen are a few of the reasons why Nomad convinced us. The name refers to the period in which the owners lived in South Africa, and also took over an organic farm in Bruges. This farm is even a purveyor to the royal household of organic products! A guaranteed breakfast or lunch to lick off your fingers and thumbs!

Address: ‘t Zand 12 , Brugge

Li o Lait 

At Li o Lait, it is as if you step back in time: vintage furniture, colourful floral wallpaper, the artworks of painter Roger Gobron and the smell of coffee. The historical setting in the Dweersstraat in Bruges immediately gives you a warm welcome. The inspirers of the shop, Li Vandamme and Lieven Verstraete, who is best known as the presenter of Terzake, are happy to take you into the world of coffee. Li has been trained as an accomplished ‘barista’ and they work together with the artisanal roaster Or. They have 1001 types of coffee that are prepared the grandmotherly way. This has already won them the award of ‘best coffee bar in Bruges’ in 2018! If you’re not a coffee lover, then you have plenty of choice from the various homemade sodas, iced teas, and juices, and a limited selection of artisanal brewed beers. Furthermore, Li O Lait has a nice menu with delicious bagels and tapas for two.
