#263 – Nice light lunch and lots of cute cards at Postbar, Bruges

restaurant review #263 – This review is from a restaurant visit to Postbar a couple of months ago, just before the lockdown measures due to the COVID19 pandemic started. Postbar opened in 2019, in the Langestraat, on the East side of Bruges. It’s a small breakfast/lunch bar, with several postcards for sale which one can write on site and also post there. Postbar is on the corner and has a bright interior, with some relax chairs as well. There is always a vegan option available. We had vegan soup (pea soup – the bread is vegan and vegan butter available, 6€). And toast with vegetable spread, which came with a nice and colourful salad on the side (8€).

#239 Beyond Meat burger at Ellis Gourmet Burger, Bruges

restaurant review #239 – Ellis Gourmet Burger is part of a chain of restaurants, with several locations in Belgium and the Netherlands. We had been to the Ellis in Louvain before and had the beet the roots burger then (see reviews of Ellis Gourmet Burger here). Since then, another vegan burger has been added to the menu: the Beyond Meat burger, so on this visit to the EGB in Bruges, we wanted to try the Beyond Meat burger.

#235 Lovely lunch at Brasserie Forestière (2), Bruges

restaurant review #235 – Brasserie Forestiere is a restaurant in the city center of Bruges, just a 5 minute walk away from the Belfry and central market. This was my second visit to Brasserie Forestière, the first visit dating back several years (one of the first reviews on my blog actually, see review here). I was here with a friend for a weekday lunch a couple of weeks ago. I had made a reservation (which is advised, the place was nearly full).

#232 Vegan carrot cake at The Gulliver Tree, Bruges

restaurant review #232 – The Gulliver Tree is not really a ‘restaurant’ but more a coffee / tea house. The Gulliver Tree also serves breakfast. and light lunch. Several vegan options are mentionned on the menu (or items that can be ordered vegan). It is located in the city center, just 2 minutes from the Belfry, in a side street from the Philip Stock streat.

#218 Two vegan pizzas from Domino’s, Bruges

restaurant review #218 – Domino’s is part of an international pizza chain. There are also several locations in Belgium. The Domino’s in Bruges is located just outside the train station. Domino’s is not a restaurant for elaborate dining, but more a take away place (there are a handful of seating places, and also a small terrace outfront). Domino’s also offers delivery in the Bruges area. Since 2018, Domino’s has two vegan pizzas standardly available: the pizza margaritha (12€) and the vegan spicy (13€). The pizzas were nice, but with a soft chewy crust though. They are made on the same counter as the non vegan pizzas, so if you are allergic, I think there might be cross contamination.

#215 Two vegan pizzas at Otomat, Bruges

restaurant review #215 – Otomat is part of a chain of restaurants in Belgium. The one in Bruges opened in the Summer of 2018. It is in the city center, on the Simon Stevin square. We were here a couple of weeks ago for lunch, in the Fall of 2018. Otomat has two vegan pizzas standardly available, each 13,9€. One with rucola and cauliflower (mega Vega), the other with yofu espuma (Las Vega), which is more spicy. So our choice was easily made! We also ordered a salad on the side (ask without the dressing). The pizzas were nice, but if you have a huge appetite this will not be filling. It would also be nice to have some vegan minced meat on the pizza, or tofu, or seitan on top, to add some more bite. It was good for a light lunch though. It’s a pity that none of the salads or appetizers is standardly vegan (you can ask a salad without the dressing, which we did). Ground level at Otomat Brugge is accessible, …
