Best Brunch in Carlisle!

You can't lose with a breakfast of waffles, frites, and a white ale / orange juice mimosa. It was absolutely delicious. The only dilemma...do you go sweet with the waffles and order them with strawberries, whipped cream, dark chocolate and powdered sugar...or do you go savory with sliced ham... read more

Authentic Belgian cuisine. Cafe Bruges nails it. The mussels are to die for. Go for traditional. The only thing that they are missing is a carry out window to by the frites.

Carlisle has really developed a fine selection of great independent eateries. Cafe Bruges did not disappoint! The croquettes were well balanced with lemon and crispy parsley, which was surprising and wonderful. The steak frites meal was worth every penny- perfectly cooked, complemented wonderfully with an herb butter and beans. The fries are superb and were authentic based on my experiences... More

Staff was very friendly and service was excellent. They had a large selection of Belgian beer. I had the crab cake sandwich and tomato soup; both delicious. My family had the lamb burger and the quiche which they thoroughly enjoyed. Also, the fries (frits) are some of the best in the area. I would definitely return.

We arrived shortly after opening on Sunday and were seated promptly. Service was warm and unrushed. Food was delicious: Farm Scramble, New York Scramble, Waffle Savory. The room is lively and happy but the acoustics easily supported a lovely afternoon conversation among the four of us. We felt welcome to stay until closing. A wonderful way to stay warm while...

What a perfect way to wind down on the next to the last day of vacation. The crab cake sandwich was outstanding. My friend had crepe of the day: mushroom and shrimp. Perfect! And save room for dessert

Good selection of Belgian beer, great take on Belgian food, I could imagine I was back in Brussels when I am there. All they need is a French speaking staff! You must try the oysters and the waffles, Yum!

Cafe Bruges is one of the nicer more interesting restaurants in Carlisle. Their menu has been the same for quite a while but it has a number of sure bets on it. The moules frites have a couple different preparations available but I've always stuck with the basic white wine version and they are consistently good. The frites (hand cut... More
