    A very few Chocolate shops in Brugge DO NOT allow you to ' look around ' and will chuck you out into the street if you do go in without knowing what you want! Check the door signs before you look. The shopkeeper of the one below was particularily obnoxious about it.

    what you need after those beers

    When drinking beers as strong as those brewed in Belgium, you will undoubtedly want to eat something before retiring for the evening. The street friteries are open fairly late in the evening but seem to have an awful habit of closing right before the pubs do, so it behooves you to get out a bit earlier, as Belgian frites are the finest you will find anywhere. One great aspect of frites in Belgium is the many different sauces you can get to top them. My favorite is lighter variation of Flemish favorite Stoovles and is similar to chips and gravy in England.

    Belgian Chocolates

    I was drooling by the end of the day trying to resist buying any of these goodies! The trouble is once you start you can't stop, so the best policy *for me anyways* is not to buy, only look.

    The worst of it is they have a Choco-Story Chocolate Museum which has a strong gravitational pull on the unwary.... it costs 5 euros entry and goes down if you are student, child etc. History, demonstrating and tasting of chocolate.... sigh

    One Hour Photo?!?! :-(

    "Our Favourite Chololate Shop" (see elsewhere) is no longer a chocolate shop. It's now a 1 hour photo processor. What a big disappointment that was. Still, there are plenty of other chocolate shops in Brugge.

    Stop drinking the great beers they have in Bruges before it is too late. You don't want to end up like these two looking in their empty glasses !!

    The only danger you will have, is wanting to stay there and having a problem transporting your stomouch out of Brugge due to the over indulgence of chocolate eating.
