Restaurant’s third location to feature signature sweet & savory waffle offerings
Orange County will be able to welcome its third Bruxie quick-serve eatery this spring. The concept, unlike any in the nation, serves more than a dozen sweet and savory gourmet waffle sandwich offerings. Chefs, Partners and Concept Creators, Dean Simon and Kelly Mullarney, who opened their first Bruxie location in 2010 in Old Towne Orange, and second location one year later on the Birch Street Promenade in Brea Downtown, will open location number three in Rancho Santa Margarita.
“It’s hard to believe that we introduced the Bruxie concept to Orange County about 15 months ago,” commented Dean Simon, Managing Partner of Bruxie. “The response from the public has been outstanding and has led our expansion to this third location in Rancho Santa Margarita.”
The Rancho Santa Margarita restaurant’s menu will mirror its sister restaurants’ menus by offering Bruxie’s unique takes on authentic Belgian waffles, alongside salads, locally produced old-fashioned cane sugar sodas, real Wisconsin frozen custard, shakes, sundaes and floats. Bruxie proudly serves Peet’s Coffee & Tea products, and nothing on the menu exceeds $10.
“Our menu puts a unique twist on classic foods, with the addition of a waffle that is crispy, light, and yeasty,” added Simon. “We have also gained quite a reputation for our real Wisconsin frozen custard, which is the base of our shakes, floats and sundaes.”
The Bruxie menu features two types of Belgian waffles. First, the Brussels waffle, used to produce all Bruxie sandwiches, is not sweet in taste, and when cooked, its yeast aroma is reminiscent of freshly baked bread. The Liege waffle, is a more dense, sweet waffle, with Belgian-pearl sugar baked into it.
Bruxie is currently open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (until 10 p.m. Thur-Sat) in Brea Downtown (215 W. Birch Street) and Old Towne Orange (292 N. Glassell Street at Palm Avenue). For more information, including full menus, visit www.bruxie.com.
Location #3 will be at 22205 El Paseo, Rancho Santa Margarita in the location formerly occupied by OC Burger. Now if we can just get one in Irvine!
