Booking Around the World: Bruges

The first thing that I think of when I think about Bruges, Belgium isn’t books. It’s canals, then waffles, then beer. So, it was a lovely surprise to find that Bruges is also a bookish town in the most unexpected ways.

Books & Brunch, Garenmarkt 30, 8000 Brugge

Books & Brunch combines two of my favourite things — eating and reading. Set in a secondhand bookshop, you can browse and buy books while you wait for your order to be loving made and delivered. Outdoor tables are available for warm days.

 The Novel, Eekhoutstraat 1, 8000 Brugge, Belgium

The Novel is a charming cafe just far enough away from the historical centre of town that you don’t feel like a tourist. With good coffee and light fare, it’s a lovely place to stop before a day exploring Bruges.

On the way out of town, I wandered through the public library and was amazed by the airy layout and gorgeous children’s section. Yet another reason to add “books” to my list of things that I think of when I think about Bruges.
