Here are some shops that I have visited (or would like to visit), which may be of interest to vegans. Inside Bruges, and outside Bruges.
Note that these are not all VEGAN shops (unfortunately, there are only a handful vegan shops in Belgium).
This list is not exhaustive. If you have any suggestions, please let me know, so I can check it out and add them to the list!
