  • We got the Bruges tour and saw all kinds of waffles, which allows us to be able to write a review on this tearoom. We chose this tearoom, for its peculiarity to do another hot chocolates that served a machine. Attention must go upstairs to taste the different flavors of chocolate. We opted for a chocolate hot classic and a chocolate hot dark selection, as well as waffles are minutes and not warmed. During the service at the table, we got the explanations to make our own hot chocolate. Chocolates are very tasty and large (equivalaient to a bowl cups) as well as waffles about 20 cm of pure happiness and excellence. You can also add little extras such as honey or marshmallows. To conclude, we had never tasted a chocolate like this just fantastic and exceptional, in the traditional way. And at the end of this tasty cloud of delight down the floor to pay the Bill, it is possible to purchase each ingredient to reproduce this pure happiness and bring his family to this great experience. Currently we have 5 stars, but we would have liked to put 5.5 stars. Remember, just perfect. Thanks for the experience!

  • We were pleasantly surprised by The Old Chocolate House. In a city like Bruges where you are being drowned in dozens of chocolate stores, The Old Chocolate House really stands out. Downstairs you will find countless of varieties of chocolates as well as freshly-made hot chocolate (with marshmallows if you like!). The hot chocolate was the best we have ever tasted. The day after we came back to go upstairs to the Tea Room where we enjoyed more freshly made hot chocolate and a variety of chocolates and waffles. A truly wonderful experience with a beautiful interior as well. There are indeed a lot of chocolate stores in Bruges. However, most of them are big chain stores which are not true authentic experience. This small gem is what you should be looking for in Bruges and we can highly recommend it.
  • Best hot chocolate I've ever had!! They have over 30 types of hot chocolate. They bring the chocolate to deep in a big hot milk mug. I specially recommend the salty caramel hot chocolate.
