BRUXIE is Bringing it! Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches that is...

Orange County will be home to a concept unlike any in the region. Bruxie, a quick-serve eatery serving more than a dozen sweet and savory gourmet waffle sandwich offerings, opens its doors on Monday, November 8 in Old Towne Orange. The restaurant will feature an authentic take on the Belgian waffles, along with old-fashioned cane sugar sodas, freshly brewed Peet's Coffee & Tea, soft-serve frozen custard, shakes, sundaes and floats. Nothing on the menu exceeds $8.

“Our goal was to introduce this never-before-seen concept to Orange County and Bruxie has accomplished that,” commented Dean Simon and Philippe Caupain, Partners of the Bruxie concept. Simon revealed that the team selected the location for its first Bruxie based on its close proximity to Chapman University and the budding Orange Plaza in Old Towne Orange. The ‘Bruxie’ is unlike any waffle, it is light, crisp, yeasty and not sweet. It's street food that's perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as a dessert, mid-day snack or late-night treat.”

Bruxie is replacing the city’s historic Dairy Treet, however, will pay homage to the 61-year-old business by reintroducing soft-serve frozen custard and other “Dairy Treets.” The artisan cane sugar sodas featured at Bruxie are produced in Orange County and are custom-made for the new eatery.

“We’ve created a menu that puts a unique twist on classic foods, everything beginning with a waffle,” added Kelly Mullarney, Director of Restaurant Operations and Partner of Bruxie. “For breakfast, eggs and Applewood smoked bacon are sprinkled with cheddar cheese and folded up into a waffle; and for lunch, an Angus patty with all the dressings in a waffle instead of a bun.”

The menu will feature two types of Belgian waffles. First, the Brussels waffle, light and crispy in texture, which, when cooked, its yeast aroma is reminiscent of freshly baked bread. The Liege waffle, a more dense, sweet, with Belgian-pearl sugar baked into it. To satisfy the sweet tooth, Bruxie offers several sweet waffles, including S'mores with toasted marshmallows, drizzled with rich Belgian chocolate.

The Bruxie opening menu will offer the following waffles:


Bacon, Egg & Cheddar
Prosciutto & Gruyere
Smoked Salmon & Dill Cream Cheese
Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Goat Cheese
Buttermilk Fried Chicken & Waffle
Bruxie Burger
Cheesy Bruxie


Fruit & Cream
PB & J
Nutella & Bananas
Lemon Cream & Berries
Ogura Bruxie

Bruxie will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is located at 292 N. Glassell Street (at Palm Avenue) in Old Towne Orange. For more information, including full menu, visit
