De Loge van Marec
De Loge van Marec & Aspe is the bookshop, cartoon gallery and coffee house of publishing house Aspe NV in the heart of Bruges, a stone’s throw from the Market Square. You will find all the books by Marec and Pieter Aspe, unique and original drawings and cartoons by Marec and artisanal chocolates by Dominique Persoone. Take a seat at our reading table and relax while enjoying a delicious steaming cup of coffee or a good glass of beer.
Despite a long and fickle history, one thing has therefore always been very central: De Reyghere wants to be a bookstore that gives books the necessary attention, grants them their rightful place in the public and cultural fabric and offers them a platform to bring the messages they contain to the foreground. And we hope to continue in this vein for many years to come!
