Hotspot Bruges: Basiel Urban Greenhouse

The perfect cafe for plant lovers… Did you really think it didn’t exist?! Of course it exists and it can be found in Bruges! I’m talking about Basiel Urban Greenhouse. It is a coffee bar slash plant and deco shop in the center of Bruges where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with a piece of cake surrounded by plants! I paid a visit to Basiel Urban Greenhouse during my vacation in Bruges and had some refreshing Iced Matcha. I just had to share this hotspot with you!

About Basiel Urban Greenhouse

Basiel Urban Greenhouse is a coffee bar slash plant and deco shop on the Mariastraat in Bruges. Many coffee bars in Bruges are closed on Mondays (No idea why. Is that a Belgian thing?). Basiel was an exception, as you can just drop by on Monday for a cup of coffee. For all my vegan peeps out there, there’s vegan pastries available at their coffeebar!

address: Mariastraat 13, 8000 Bruges, Belgium

A Look Inside Basiel Urban Greenhouse

My favourite thing about Basiel Urban Greenhouse is that you can enjoy a superb cup of coffee surrounded by gorgeous plants and an even better atmosphere. The way they have decorated the place is very cozy. We asked for a table on the ground floor, but there is also a cozy sitting area upstairs. There’s also a courtyard where you can sit when the weather’s nice. Unfortunately it was rainy weather when we were there, but it is certainly nice to sit inside.

At the entrance of Basiel Urban Greenhouse is, how I like to call it, a little shopping corner where you can buy decor items and plants. Basiel sell a number of awesome and (to me) well-known brands such as: Happysoaps, We Love The Planet and Grow Your Ownn (maybe you know the brand from my last article). You can even shop some products online at, such as the Grow Your Ownn grow sets.

Matcha Lovers Unite!

Since we already had the biggest and most lavish breakfast at the Markt in Bruges in the morning already, we didn’t have any vegan pastries. On the other hand, since we just climbed the Belfry, we just couldn’t skip the delicious drinks they have at Basiel. While the others all went for an iced coffee and iced cappuccino, as a real matcha lover I had to try their iced matcha! Deliciously refreshing is all I have to say!
