First Review by Ricardo

VEGAN - nice food - Edit

Lots of different vegan options clearly labelled and hot drinks with soy and almond milk. I had the turmeric almond latte and it was lovely! I then had the vegetable pot pie, it was not a pie and was just vegetables in a bowl with quinoa but it was gorgeous and would get it again. It cost around €10 which wasn't too bad for what I got. In general however it is pretty pricey with avocado on toast meals etc costing around €15/16 but we found it was only average for Bruges in terms of price comparison.

Nice light lunch, in vintage decor - Edit

This is from a visit at the end of 2016.

This is the second location of LPQ in Bruges, and I like this one much better than the other one (near the Market).

It has a charming vintage feel, with seperate rooms. Although it can be quite a busy atmosphere.
There's also a large terrace at the back.

Vegan options are indicated with carrot on menu. Light lunch options.
Reasonably priced (we had lunch for two with drinks for about 40€). Didn't have to wait long.

AGAIN, the bread came with cow butter, despite asking everything vegan. Has happened on all our visits to different LPQ's throughout the country.
Surely by now they could have vegan butter available?

Toilets in the back were a bit dirty though.

Paying at the counter (where there was a long wait).


Pros: vegan options, vintage feel

Cons: busy atmosphere , cow butter, very small table

Good vegan lunch - Edit

This is a nice location, part of a chain of restaurants in Belgium and they all have the proposal of vegan dishes based on salad, bread, toast...

They include things like quinoa, chickpeas, avocado, zucchini...so it's definitely very tasty.

For the desserts it chagnes apparently from location to location.

In Bruges we just had 1 blueberry muffin and none of the cheese cakes we are used to in other locations.

Good experience.

Pros: Good vegan ingredients, Nice place

Cons: No RAW cheese cakes when we passed by

many rooms and farm house tables - Edit

Very French organic and local food. 30% of menu is vegan designed. Only one hot entree (pot pie) and soup of the day.

Always a Good Backup Place - Edit

Visited in October 2016.

Like other Le Pain Quotidien (LPQ) branches, vegan items are marked with a carrot sign in the menu.
They offer tartines, soups, salads, and one "vegan plate" which comes with different things (and bread, of course).

This branch is located in the city center, in a nice building, so the atmosphere is a bit different than the other LPQ in Bruges.

For those like me who are used to LPQ in France, in Belgium they give you a chocolate with your coffee, which is nice. :)

The place was crowded; but still the staff was friendly and attentive enough.

Since there are always many choices for vegans, it's a good back-up place (and I think you need one in Bruges!).

Pros: vegan marks, good value

Cons: not fully vegan
