restaurant review #285 – Atelier Flori is a vegan wine and tapas bar in the center of Bruges. It opened at the end of 2019. It is a bit tucked away in the Korte Vuldersstraat, near ‘t Zand.
This review is from a visit to Atelier Flori in September 2020, before the second lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic were enforced.
The menu only offers a handful of light options (e.g. nachos with dip), as this is primarily a wine bar. We chose the vegan etagère for two (32€) and it was magnificent! With homemade vegan cheezes, lasagne, avocado spread, a small glass of soup, bread, fresh vegetables and much more.
More than enough for the two of us!
We had some alcohol free drinks (lemnade 3,50€, mocktail 5€).
For dessert we shared a chocolate mousse (made with aquafaba) with whip (5€). Nice!
We enjoyed the beautiful decor. The bar is located in an old historic building in the city centre of Bruges. It used to be the painting studio (atelier) of painter Flori Van Acker in the 19th century, hence the name.
They also host live music and art exhibitions on selected dates (outside of Corona times …).
Accessibility: There is one small step to get in, some tables on ground floor. Back seat area is with several steps and toilets are also in the back (steps). Didn’t see an accessible toilet.
All in all: we really loved it! Great homemade tapas, lovely music and a nice chat with the owners.
Note: This review is from a visit before the lockdown due to COVID, so please be aware that the setting, menu, etc may have changed meanwhile.
