Cafe Bruges is a delightful place with good craft beers, excellent steaks, and amazing fries. You will not leave hungry. Wait staff is good and willing to bring out beer samples. We dined with a two year old, and they were very accommodating. Wish there was a Kangaroo diaper change station in the bathrooms, and wish they served wine, too.

Cafe Bruges has an eccentric old-world feel. The atmosphere is intimate and the food is good!! My favorite will always be the frites with their special homemade sauces. It's a must try!

Great savory waffle. The ham cheese and eggs in a lemon sauce were tasty over the malted waffle. They will have full liquor license soon!!!

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

The French fries tasted exactly like the French fries you get in Bruges Belgium, its the same way they cook them.

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.
