Myself and the group I was traveling with tried the Cafe for the first time. I have been to Belgium and the Frites are exactly like those on the streets there.

Moules and Frites just like in Brussels. Fantastic range of European beers, only criticism is its a bit on the pricey side for the beers

Wonderful selection of Belgian beers, and delicious food. I especially recommend the mussels and frites. If you're in Carlisle looking for casual dining, this is a terrific spot!

Limited menu but what they have is great. Their frittes are to die for. Stoemp is authentic, lamb burgers rock. We have been to Denmark and appreciate great danish pub food.

I describe this as a "dining experience" because the ambiance is a big part of the appeal of Cafe Bruges - small and intimate, lots of wood, a nice place to bring a date. The food is above average, and there's plenty of it. The last time I was there, I ordered the soup and half sandwich combo and had... More

Early dinner with family. The fries and various sauces are great. The rest was average to include steaks (dry), burgers and service. Will try a different restaurant next time we meet in Carlisle.

This is a fun place with a good selection of fun beers. The fries are ridiculous! The food overall is high quality prepared by people that obviously care. Very friendly place and a good place to spend time just hanging out.

This is not a fancy place, but it seems we go here for special occasions. Mussels & Frites are always ALWAYS great. No matter which preparation you get. The Steak Frites is wonderful (The peas are fantastic, high praise for the lowly pea) Terrific beers and wonderful servers. I love this place!

Thank Amesk
