On a business visit to the Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, I dined twice at the Cafe Bruges. Having enjoyed a few meals at the restaurants in Brussels, Belgium that inspired this one, I was anxious to see how well they could recreate both the environment and the cuisine. Success! I almost forgot that I was in Pennsylvania.... The... More

Love the beers here, the cheese plate and the beet salad. The pomme frites are always excellent, I like the curry ketchup, different and delicious! The burger here is top notch! The beers are really different and wonderful! Overall one of our favorite places in Carlisle!

We've never been disappointed at Café Bruges! Mussels and frites (get the curried ketchup!) Lamb burgers, fish, everything! Don't forget the belgian beers! For Sunday brunch, the Savory Waffle is ridiculously yummy! #52breakfasts

This place is by far one of the best I have ever visited. Beef tallow fries, Bruxelles style mussels. Sour beers on tap... I could go on. Service is attentive but not over bearing. Food and beer selection will keep you coming back. Best spot for Sundays in the fall hands down.

The food at Cafe Bruges is quite good, but be ready to spend $25 per person ... a bit steep for Carlisle. They do have a nice selection of beers, parking can be a bit of a pain - you're on the street

The highlight of visiting my daughter at Dickinson College for 4 years was Bruges. Great every time!

This warm and welcoming spot in Carlisle specializes in craft beers and Belgian food. I went with my grand daughter and her friends from Dickinson College. I am normally a wine drinker, but found the flight of four beer tastings from a range of options refreshing and interesting. I had the lamb burger, an option not always available, and enjoyed...

I waited several days to write this hoping my feelings regarding our visit would mello, but no. We are foodies & very choosy about where we eat. Cafe Bruge came highly recommended on this and other sites. My sister lives in nearby Dillsburg & gave it rave reviews. We arrived for lunch on a Saturday and were the first patrons.... More

I didn't realize that the only alcoholic drink they served was beer. Oops. Luckily, the food made up for the lack of wine. I had the lamb burger which was very good. Get it with the horseradish sauce. And the frites are divine. And there are lots. Two of us ordered them as a side and couldn't finish them. We... More
