Bruxie's Gourmet Waffles

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

If you're in Southern California this Memorial Day, or any time in the near future, check out Bruxie, an awesome new find in Orange County. They have three locations - Brea, Rancho Santa Margarita, and the City of Orange. We've been to the one in Orange two times now, and have NOT been disappointed. Everything we've tried is tasty and "crave-worthy." That is, it's food that I crave on a regular basis. Unfortunately, I'm a bit too far to go out there every time I want it, but it's been a treat in my recent life, and I like it.

If you love waffles (like I do), then the thought of a sandwich made with waffles instead of bread is like heaven. This place is just a little shack. Seating is available outside only and you won't miss it because there's a line around the corner at any given time of the day.

They fill these folded waffles with everything from PB & J to a classic burger, from pastrami to prosciutto to pulled pork. It's glorious.

Here's the cheeseburger...simple lettuce, tomato, and cheddar, but so juicy and good.

Of course they have to have a fried chicken & waffle too - served with maple syrup and pictured here with a side of waffle cut fries.
Then, there's dessert...

You can do it simple with lemon cream & berries, or nutella & banana, OR, you can do it up in a sundae with frozen custard and the works...

This is what we demolished...a traditional Belgian-style waffle, the batter studded with sugar crystals so that they carmelize in the waffle iron, topped with frozen custard, peanuts, chocolate and caramel sauce, and lots and lots of whipped cream.

They also serve housemade old-fashioned sodas, lemonade, and shakes. There are always specials too...of course there are!

It's different, it's really good...and if I have to list a negative, it's that there's no onsite bathroom. But, trust me, it's worth the walk to the local Starbucks for a restroom just to have your tummy full of this goodness.

Try it. You'll like it.
