A nice nitch restaurant. Serves great Belgian food and beers. Not cheap. Not recommended if you don't like Belgian food and drink as they don't serve much else.

We had lunch at Cafe Bruges after it was recommended to us by several people. The beer selection is impressive, but that is the only choice of alcoholic beverage. The burger was really exceptional, and the crab and corn chowder was also very tasty. The service was friendly. The noise was a problem when the place was full - we were pretty much unable to converse over the din while we waited for our food.

Cafe Bruges is a nice and trendy restaurant in downtown Carlisle. Parking can be difficult since the restaurant does not have a parking lot. You are the mercy of street parking spaces. The restaurant does not accept reservations so be prepared to wait especially on busy weekends. The beer sampler is a treat. French fries are authentic Belgian. The mussels are very good.

Service and food were good. The fish was served hot and tasted fresh. The wait to be served was also average. This restaurant staff were friendly.

Cafe Bruges is a gem in Carlisle, PA. The food is wonderful; crepes, quiche, waffles, sausages...but the mussels are outstanding. Tender and made to perfection with many different ways to have them prepared. The pomme frites...wonderful as well... but plan to share them as they are a huge serving. Along with them, the homemade sauces are a great compliment, but my favorite is the mustard-mayo. And, to have an inexpensive beer sampling, you have to order the "flight". Choice of 4 draft beers in small, but ample servings (5 oz. glasses I think) for $10. It's a bit loud, and they don't take reservations, but it's a must try place in Carlisle.
