The food is always fabulous, and if you are a burger lover, the lamb burger is the best ever! Excellent beer selections and service was friendly. The mussels are delicious. A little pricey, but worth the money.

We really enjoyed our meal here. They have a great menu and serve mussles in the European way with crispy french fries and a yummy assortment of sauces/dips for the fries. Huge assortment of beers including the one we had in Belgium! Almost could imagine that we weren't in the U.S. at all!

Very nice experience. Started at the bar and the bartender was very helpful in selecting beers. (note: beer only). Seated promptly and waitress was great. Food was excellent. Not a large restaurant and the place was full, but it didn't feel crowded. Noise level was kind of high but not disturbingly so. Would definitely visit again.

We had a late lunch at Bruges on a summer Saturday and it was delicious. We enjoyed a huge beer menu and ordered specialty beers that we loved. (We have a very helpful waiter that guided us in our selections as well.) We ordered hamburgers because we could smell the grill and we couldn't resist. I ordered the lamb burger... More

Despite living nearby, I hadn't gotten around to checking out Cafe Bruges for some time. While the fries are everything you'd expect from a Belgian cafe, you can't make a meal on just them. The mussels were small and shriveled, definitely sub-par.

One of the great perks to living in downtown Carlisle is being able to enjoy walking thru beautiful neighborhoods to share a top notch meal with friends, and Cafe Bruges is one of my favorites. The hard part is ordering something new when there are so any old favorites. Their Flemish beef stew is always lick the bowl clean. Mussels... More

When looking for a place to eat here before going to the Carlisle theater, we stumbled upon Cafe Bruges. The menu posted outside looked interesting, so we decided to give it a try. All of the dishes and all of the beer were Belgian. There were so many different beers that they were listed in a book, with a description... More

This turned out to be one of my favorite restaurants in the Carlisle area, and after 14 weeks of living in a hotel room for training, I tried a lot of places! Cafe Bruges is on the higher end of the price scale for a town of Carlisle's size, but it's certainly not overpriced or out of reach for more... More
