Have you ever wondered what the lovechild of a burger and a waffle would taste like?  Well Bruxie will put an end to your curiosity.  They sell sweet and savory sandwiches and pure cane sugar sodas.  The only difference is instead of using bread, they fold a waffle slice in half like a taco.  Their menu is rather small, but everything I tried is quite delicious.  They definitely focus on quality over quantity.

Bruxie, The Bold Fold... tasty, delicious bold fold.

I ordered the Sun-dried Tomato & Goat Cheese sandwich, which also comes with arugula in balsamic reduction.  My friend went with a sweet waffle, the Nutella and Bananas with Sweet Cream, he added peanut butter to make it even better.  The tangy sweetness of the sun-dried tomatoes complimented the goat cheese on top of the crisp, made-to-order waffle bed.  The flavors were not overbearing, but just balanced.  My friend’s waffle made a wonderful dessert, tasting much like a Reese’s with banana.  To finish it off, I washed everything down with a Lemon Lime soda.  The difference between real sugar soda and high-fructose corn syrup soda lies in the aftertaste.  There isn’t that stickiness in the back of your throat after you swallowed your gulp.  It’s a much more crisp, refreshing taste.

The price was a little high for how much food you actually get.  However, the quality of the ingredients is worth the money (and trip).  Parking is a little unreasonable.  There are only four parking spots in their lot, the rest is street parking.  So for those of you that fear the dreadful parallel, practice before you come!  Other than that, it is a great place to bring someone to, a nice quiet area just a couple of blocks north of the traffic circle in Orange.  It is definitely a place I would recommend trying out once if you’ve never combined the two concepts of sandwiches and waffles before.
