Our Airbnb host recommended this place to us. I'm plant-based/vegan so we were anticipating a struggle to find chocolate anywhere! However I managed to find two dairy-free chocolate bars which taste so good. Would recommend coming here regardless

Oh how I wish Mr De Clerck would ship. We bought as much as we could carry for gifts back home. It is worth a trip back to Bruges if you are in the area. Better than any other chocolates we have ever tasted and...More

My wife and I were in Burgge for a vacation and found Jan De Clerck chocolate shop. There were a myriad of places to buy chocolate but this sole proprietor shop was charming. The chocolate was great and the prices were less than the others...More

This is an interesting chocolate shop with a good selection at apparently reasonable prices. BUT BEWARE THE WEIGHT RIP-OFF. I purchased several items including what I thought was a 1 kg box of chocolates at a special price. The box was presented pre-packed with a...More

Milk chocolate truffles are fantastic, but the dark chocolate truffles are incomparable. Purchased half kilo of each and had to run back for 2 kilos of the dark before leaving town. A must stop for any chocolate lover in Brugge!

A bit off the beaten path and not as glamorous as some shops but definitely the most delectable chocolates we had in Bruges. The dark chocolate truffles were the best! We stopped at this shop early on in our stay in the city and after...More

I first discovered this place on an early 2016 when I had looked at blogs that talked about the chocolate shops the locals visit. The prices are very good (about 7.50 euro for half a kilo). This time I returned with friends and my partner...More

Technically, this is the second visit we've made to Jan De Clerck--but while we were in Bruges in 2015, we visited 4 times in 4 days--so really it's our 5th. You can find a lot of chocolate in Bruges, but it's not always at reasonable...More

Normally most of the chocolate shops are overpriced in Bruges and really expensive. Compared to those shops, this place really has fair prices. However, you can't select the chocolates that you would like and need to get the prepacked ones which I didn't risk at...More
