we’re addicted to these so you should be too.

Let’s make this short and sweet, since I just suck at restaurant posts.


Strawberry creme brulee waffle sandwiches. Perfect custard, tart strawberries, bittersweet burnt sugar in a crispy waffle. It’s a ‘special’ item, and for good reason.

If it was available all the time I’d weigh well into my 200s by next month.

Where can you get this, you ask? Not from the hottest restaurant in town, or a raging food truck. Nope. From this little stand. Bruxie, “the bold fold.”. Which is dangerously close to home base.

But wait! There’s more.


Buttermilk Fried Chicken Waffle Sandwich. 6.95 for a big piece of chicken breast + chili honey and coleslaw. In a perfectly crispy waffle. Add another bone for a container of maple syrup, or… Dunk it in sriracha, like Don does. Also: for 2 more bones you can add a small package of delectable waffle fries. Which you should, because COME ON! It’s waffle fries.

Also awesome: traditional Brussels waffles (4.95), with powdered or cinnamon sugar. Thicker than the sandwich waffles, and it’s like, magic. Crispy on the outside, fluffy in the inside. Throw in another dollar for maple syrup if you must.

Liege waffle (3.95). You know, what most of us think of when we hear “Belgian waffles” – dense, sweet, with chunks of sugar inside.


Other stuff that you should try: everything on the sweets menu and then some. Like the Wisconsin style frozen custard (2.95 for a small). Incredibly dense and creamy and fatty and heartstopping and everything else that you expect from a good quality soft serve.

Beware of parking, as it’s mainly street and very limited. Bruxie is right next to Chapman University, and you know what that means – meter maids on the prowl!
But when you do secure a nice, safe spot, you’ll probably see me and Don. Or Anna. Or Jenn. Or all us of together. Like I said, it’s an addiction.

    My arteries are clogging just _looking_ at that fried chicken waffle!

    But the other stuff looks pretty darn good. I keep hearing good things about this place. I’m gonna have to go check it out some day.

    Man .. why WHY is this in Orange? So far… on the plus side, at least now there is a place I want to eat at in OC!

    ‘Meter Maids on the prowl!” LOL! I really like your restaurant posts! The only bummer about Bruxie is that it’s totally unportable. You just have to eat it on the spot to prevent steam sog. I really liked the braised short rib with bleu cheese one!

    But the single best item on their menu is the smoked salmon waffle. Seriously.
