Bruges is renowned for its UNESCO-listed Old Town, with its medieval architecture and picturesque canal ways. On this tour, visit historic landmarks such as the Church of Our Lady and the Beguinage, admire the views as you stroll along the canal side, and venture away from the crowds to discover little-known sights and hidden gems.

First visit to Bruges with my fiancé and had already selected shops to try for our chocolate purchases on Tripadvisor. This one is well deserved #1 as it’s beautifully presented, inviting and the chocolates are absolutely gorgeous! We bought a good selection to bring home for family. The owner was lovely and informative and made us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend and return if we make another trip to Bruges. Keep up your fantastic work :-)

The chocolate shop is ran by a lovely family, who does not resell its product like many other shops in Belgium, but keeps it as a family business. By selling their own product, they put a lot of efforts, strength and heart&soul into making their own chocolates, this is what makes it special among other much advertised and marketed Belgian chocolates. I bought 2 packs of assorted, couple of chocolate bars, truffles and bear shaped chocolate for a kid. When I got back home and tried them, I regretted I didnt buy much more!!! By the way, considering that it's not heavily marketed brand, this shop chocolates are much more cheaper considering to all Neuhaus, Leonidas, Lindt and etc., so it is not only tastier, but you can buy more there for less price! ;)

Dear Madina, you have put a lot of effort into sharing your experience... It is because of lovely people like you who share their experience that we are so high rated on Trip Advisor. Thank you very much!!! Your beautiful words are much more important to us than earning a lot of money through mass production … We will continue to make a difference with our small-scale, artisan production. Thanks again and always welcome! Sofie & Gino :) :)

Came across this fantastic chocolate shop. The owner was so lovely. The shop is run by him and his wife and they make all the chocolate themselves.. they had the most beautiful lipsticks, wine bottles and shoes all moulded in chocolate. Fantastic gift ideas and gorgeous wrapping and packaging. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you!

The front of the shop is eye-catching. The owner is genuinely hospitable and accommodating. It's really nice inside, everything is creative and really made with love. He made our souvenirs extra-special. It's highly recommended! Don't miss it!

We've just visited this great shop and had to help spread the word. After seeing a few photos on Instagram, I thought this could be the place to get some souvenir chocolates that stood out from the myriad chocolate shops in Bruges. The lovely couple who run this independent business are local to the area, handmadke all the chocolates, and present them all in an easy-on-the-eye way so you can clearly see what types and styles to go for. The owner spoke excellent English, and took time to chat so we didn't feel rushed - as a tourist sometimes you feel just want the cash and don't really invest time in talking, so it was nice to find a friendly business to support. He even thought about a plastic bag to use for us in the rain, which is a great nice touch. Now....to eat the chocolates and enjoy!
