Bruxie Gourmet Waffles

Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches in Orange, California

When you have a blog dedicated to sharing all your favorite things, it’s hard not to start every post with “Oh my gosh, you guys!”

I really, really wanted to start this post with “Oh my gosh, you guys!”

Also hard: Limiting the number of times I use words like Fabulous! Life changing! and Gorgeous! per paragraph.

I do try. But it’s a challenge.

When I was visiting Jenny in California a few weekends ago, she showed me the menu for this seriously fun waffle stand.

They have sweet waffles, savory waffles, and waffles for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.

I knew immediately that we were going to need one of everything on the menu.

Just check out this small sample of their fun offerings.

I mean really. They had a S’mores Waffle. It was sprinkled with crushed, sweet graham crackers, drizzled with warm, melted chocolate, and topped with gooey, oozing perfectly toasted marshmallows.

You know there’s no way I wasn’t saying yes to that!

Next was the Creme Brulee Waffle. It was:

  1. A perfectly toasted waffle.
  2. Covered with decadent creme brulee custard.
  3. Topped with sugar and bruleed, so it had that wonderfully crisp, crackly topping, and…
  4. Stuffed with impossibly gorgeous red strawberries that, I kid you not, were absolutely bursting with sweetness.

I don’t know if you know this about me, but fruit (and nuts) in dessert stand for everything I’m against in the world. I love fruit. I love nuts. But I don’t want them in my dessert. It’s a texture thing. And a sweetness thing. And probably a weirdo thing.

But this. Was. Fabulous. I can’t imagine it without strawberries. I needed those strawberries. As hard as it is for me to admit, I don’t know which one was my favorite — the S’mores or the Creme Brulee!

Next was a PB&J Waffle. How fun is this waffle? Tasted just like a toasted PB&J sandwich. Loved it!

Of course, we had to try one savory waffle as well. This is the Bruxie Hash and Eggs. It was a special of the day, and sold out in one hour! Good thing we got there right when they opened! It’s a prosciutto and pastrami hash topped with gruyere cheese and a jumbo fried egg. All wrapped up in a waffle.

Yes. Please.

If you are ever anywhere near Bruxie, any time of day, make sure you stop by. Fabulous food, generous folks, and seriously fun waffles.

When I saw Jenny post about this a few days ago, I was like…whoa, a SoCal place I MUST visit and had never even heard of!

I’m with you on nuts…love them on their own, but not in desserts.

Smores, PB&J, and Creme Brulee…I couldn’t even pick one. WOW!

Those waffles look so fabulous, gorgeous and life changing! Would love to eat one right now! Can’t wait to get back to the states and make a trip out to SoCo! Thanks for reporting!

I live in Socal and actually only discovered this place a year ago! I simply LOVE it! I actually went there this weekend because I saw Jenny’s post on it! I would definitely recommend you (& anyone else) to try their lemon cream & berries. DELICIOUS is all I can say for that one! I must also add, their waffles fries are as good as chik-fil-la! ♥

In addition to the location in Orange, there is also one in downtown Brea. I would highly recommend the pastrami sandwich and the prosciutto & gruyere sandwich for savory choices. For a fabulous sweet treat, try the nutella and banana with chantilly cream. It is to die for! And whenever they have specials, it is a good idea to try them as they are usually outrageously good!

I no longer live in California but I went to College at Chapman University in Orange, California. They opened this place after I moved away and I’ve been dying to try their food. Everything looks so delicious!

You ladies have to stop with the Bruxie’s pictures!! Besides seeing Bruxie’s on TV recently, I have been seeing them on Facebook, Instagram, various blog posts from the awesome get-together you ladies had, and I think I have been drooling for the past week. And I live in NJ, with, unfortunately, no plans to get to So Cal for a while :-(

Oh my gosh…is a perfect way to describe Bruxie! My hubby and I LOVE to eat there. One of our faves! Next time, you should try the pastrami special. Incredibly moist and delicious.

PS – I’m a college counselor, and one of my former students is the son of the owner. I started working with him right when the first location in Orange opened, and now a year and a half later, they’re working on location #3 in the OC! So excited for them.

I’m pretty ashamed to say that I live 2 miles from the Brea location, and I still have not been there! I think I may have to change that this weekend :)

When I’m behind in baking, I use waffles for my son’s lunch sandwich bread. He loves it, and I always know he’ll eat his lunch that day.
