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.”

Rieny Samoey

Favourite bagel: James

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

Céline Jonckheere

Favourite bagel: Edward

Céline Jonckheere is the foodie at Sanseveria. She’s never shy to join our guests at the table to share her thoughts. Céline gained working experience in trendy Amsterdam but the need to return back to her roots was too strong. She serves bagels with ever surprising toppings. Her creed? Less is more.

Silke Nagels

Favourite bagel: Amelia

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


Caroline Vermeersch

Favourite bagel: Madison

Caroline Vermeersch is the ‘queen of honor’! Caroline will treat 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: Suzy

Kelly is the vegan note in our team! This genuine Ostend mum-of-two knows the various vegetarian and new vegan combinations like no other. Kelly enjoys an entertaining night out with friends as well as some quiet with boyfriend and kids. Healthy food culture is her thing!

Silke Bultinck

Favourite bagel: John

Silke Bultinck is ‘ la madre’ at the Ostend restaurant. Young and happily married with three lovely kids. Ever calm, there is no need in rushing Silke. Always smiling Silke will serve you with grace and style. She’s what makes the Ostend restaurant run smoothly.

Noah Claeys

Favourite bagel: Ron

Noah Claeys is our kitchen stand-in. Slicing tomatoes, frying bacon,… He is a true gem in the Sanseveria kitchen. Rather shy but always up for a good joke.
