Nice light lunch, but few vegan options - Edit

Was here with a friend for lunch.
We had a nice light lunch. Had to ask about vegan options, as there are none mentioned standardly on the menu.

Soup of the day, bagel with guacamole and a piece of oreocake (from The Green & Clean Bakery - vegan catering).
Nice. And all in all good value for money (considering prices in Bruges).
Old fasioned style interior. Not so comfy hard chairs. Some sofas in front to relax.

Pros: knowledgeable about ingredients, vegan cake, friendly

Cons: no vegan options standardly mentioned on menu, comfort

VEGAN - decent breakfast - Edit

Cute little cafe serving breakfast and lunch bagels. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. No vegan meals labelled you have to ask, very accommodating. The vegan breakfast option was avocado bagel. It was lovely, €6.50, nothing fancy or special but yummy and cheap.

Lots of coffees and teas with soy milk, I had a caramel soy latte and it was lovely.

Vegan on request. - Edit

Thanks to Trudi from 'The Bruges Vegan' to guide us towards this place, otherwise we would most likely have skipped Bruges for lunch, since there is really not a lot of vegan choices unfortunately.

LiOLait is right in the city centre of Bruges, since we were by car, we parked it in 'Parking Zilverpand', which mentioned 'full' now we still managed to get in and found a spot.

It's a nice looking place inside and outside, as well as friendly staff who speak Dutch and English (also the card is available in both languages).

On the card they indicate can be made 'veggie', now it is not very clear what that means and I would recommend to talk with the staff.
The owner we talked to knew very well what vegan was, and assured us that everything we took was made vegan for us.

They look like being quite specialized in 'Bagels', some kind of bread, sandwich, donut mix and which is vegan in all cases.

Unknown to us, we decided to take the bagels vegan tapas, which was quite nice and a quite nice mix for lunch.

While we were eating, the owner also came to see us, saying afterwards that if we would like some dessert, that they had just prepared some fresh new vegan cookies, which we of course decided to try out as well.

Overall, we had a nice experience, it is just unfortunate that we had to know about this proposal from other visitors and that on their own they do not set any further effort in this.
A majority of vegans will pass this place since there is no indication of what they can do.

I left an 'I love veggies' sticker in the hope it will ring a bell.

Pros: Nice place for vegan lunch, Friendly staff

Cons: Should set more effort on communication around veg
