Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and Frites

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesFrites: a Belgium take on the classic “french fry”, and a delicious one at that.

My next sweet stop took me on a yummy Belgium adventure right here in good old Salt Lake City, which included frites! And you might be wondering why I mentioned french fries for a sweet stop…but I have another word to throw into the mix…waffles!

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesI’m sharing a fun little spot called Bruges Waffles and Frites, that’s a must try if you happen to live in or stop into SLC!

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesThe owner of Bruges Waffles and Frites was born and raised in Brugge (Bruges), Belgium. In March 2004, after living in Salt Lake City for 10 years, they adapted an old family recipe for the traditional liege waffle and started a waffle business selling waffles on Main Street in Salt Lake City from a vending cart! (How fun!) The same year they operated the cart at the Downtown Salt Lake City Farmers Market and some local summer events.

It didn’t take long for Utah to jump on board! Soon after, they opened a year-round “hole in the wall” storefront.

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesI took a trip to that exact charming little hole in the wall for this month’s sweet stop!

It has a tiny little interior, a cute little sidewalk patio outside with seating, and also a rooftop patio that you can chill out on during the Summer months. But let’s be honest, I came for the waffles!

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesAfter lots of going back and forth, I finally settled on the Monster Waffle, a liege waffle stuffed with crunchy speculoos spread (cookie butter basically!), two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, strawberries, and of course, two blueberries for eyes. I think I was drawn into the cute presentation of the waffle, and who can resist ice cream on a waffle?! Not me!

The frites come in either a small, medium, or large size (the large size can definitely feed a few people!) and you have the choice to pick from one-three different sauces depending on the frite size you pick. With sauce options like mayonnaise, aioli, greens, lemon pepper dill, zensation, brasil, fry sauce, curry, zango, andalouse, samurai, and afterburner, it can be hard to pick just a few! I stuck with the traditional Utah dip of choice, Fry Sauce, which, if you haven’t heard of before, is an amazing combination of mayo and ketchup. Sounds totally weird but it’s beyond good.

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesBruges also has an awesome variety of savory choices too, like the Rickey burger or the Machine Gun sandwich, which I heard is out of this world good and was featured on tv show Man vs. Food. I’ll have to make another trip back to get lunch next time!

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesI couldn’t leave without a waffle for the road either, so I also picked out one of their “On The Go Chocolate Waffles”, a waffle that’s a little bit smaller in size and partly covered in Belgium dark, milk, and white chocolate. They are also packaged up perfectly to stick into your purse and snack on for the drive home. 😉 Not saying I did that or anything…

Sweet Stop: Bruges Waffles and FritesIf you’re local to Salt Lake City and are planning a party or get-together, Bruges also has a Waffle Bus available for catering too! Such a cute and fun idea for catering! And they even do weddings!

All in all, Bruges Waffles and Frites is a must stop for the sweet or salty lover in your life. If you’re hungry, get both the waffles and the frites, I would highly recommend them!
