Bert - I am the boss

Favourite bagel: Ruby

“Is famous bird here?! “, is something we hear a lot in Bruges. Bird gradually turned into my nickname. I am totally dedicated to Sanseveria and my team. Sanseveria is an overall experience and I am constantly on the lookout for new products and recipes. All of this to create that “ I want to come back” feeling for our visitors. Sanseveria isn’t a job, it’s a way of living.” But always keep in mind: ‘work hard, stay busy & be humble.”

Caroline is the ‘queen of honor’! She treated you to a healthy bagel any time. She is fond of quinoa and likes swimming in her free time. A hot chocolate Caroline style? She’ll fill an almost empty Nutella jar with milk, shake it and… ready! Utterly delicious and highly recommended.

Favourite bagel: Ron

Thanks to O’zon Brugge - VZW Oranje, Noah was our kitchen stand-in. Slicing tomatoes, frying bacon,… He was a true gem in the Sanseveria kitchen. Rather shy but always up for a good joke.

Silke aka ‘nails’ amongst her friends. This sporty, perky lady whisked her way through the restaurant like a whirlwind. She knew ‘how to handle Americans’ as the best. She worked her magic time and time again to create her ‘famous chocolate pie’ and served anything sweet made with lots of love.

Our Rieny was ‘the head chef’ in Bruges. Her love of bagels was something you could actually taste. She was always in a good mood, up for a little chat and her enthusiasm was limitless. She was the youngest of the Sanseveria family but has nevertheless a golden food touch. You could always please our chef with a glass of white wine, 'not too sweet please!'.

‘Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world’ is Gail’s motto. The way she interacted with our regulars and the calm she radiates made her the right woman for the job. You could meet her in both Bruges and Ostend. She has experience, has received several professional training courses, and perfectly knew how to transfer this into her job at Sanseveria’s. The red lipstick makes her unique and strong!


Favourite bagel: Elliot

Don’t be mistaken about Sofia. The timid first impression only served her not to disclose her qualities right away. As a former editor-in-chief with hotel and catering magazine Venuez, she is second to none when it comes to writing and she excels in communication. She's a classy lady with Moroccan blood and a very warm heart for all those who love her. But above all, she was a very nice colleague!

This youthful talent was mostly working in Ostend. After some experience in various catering businesses, Sanseveria felt like coming home to her.
