Looking for Belgium made products and chocolates. Also looking for a café for pastry and coffee. Any advice? Thanks for your help!
You can get everything you want in Kerkstraat and/or Molenstraat. For chocolates (and other candies):
- Leonidas, Kerkstraat 17 (http://www.leonidas-blankenberge.be/)
- Chocolaterie Delhy, Kerkstraat 35
- Nougatine, Kerkstraat 65
- Moeder Babelutte, Kerkstraat 70: http://www.moeder-babelutte.be/
- Carrefour Market, Kerkstraat 78 - especially for chocolate bars and biscuits (cookies to you) by e.g. Jules Destrooper and Delacre; to get an idea in advance, see https://store.belgianshop.com/29-biscuits
For coffee and cakes (like these: http://www.koffiepotje.be/gebak.html) Koffiepotje is at Molenstraat 48 (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Revie…), near Sint Rochus church and the Belle Epoque Center, and also sells Belgian products like advokaat (http://www.koffiepotje.be/koffiepotje.html) and for coffee and e.g. pancakes or waffles - which aren't eaten for breakfast in Belgium! - 't Koetshuis, Molenstraat 19 (https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Revie…).
If you had actually looked at the information already provided, including the links, you would have found that the very first one gives you a MAP (although you could also have thought to check addresses yourself on e.g. google maps). This not only shows the exact location in Blankenberge of the Leonidas shop, on what you must surely recognise as a street or road, but also that virtually all streets/roads are labelled as something-straat - this being the Flemish equivalent of "street" in English.
I spent a lovely day here on a stop on a cruise. Decided to visit Blankenberge instead of Brugge. It is a very pleasant seaside town, easy to reach on the tram. Plenty to see and do, the seafront is great, good pier and the town has some great cafes, bars to sit and people watch. The info and links given are excellent and very helpful 😊
