Having been to the Bruxie in Orange, I was excited to see a newer and better (larger) one open up in Brea. Anticipating its grand opening, I was shocked as to see the great location they were able to snatch up. After procrastinating for a bit, I finally was able to try Bruxie in Brea. The first few months of opening, the lines were just too long. I probably would have gotten my food quicker if I drove to Orange and back. My first time around in Orange, I ate some savory items. This time, I went for the sweet.
Nutella is some of the best things on Earth. Its chocolatey and nutty and delicious. I had the one with nutella and bananas. Inside, the sweet cream mixed with the nutella and made a nice creamy filling. The fruit were fresh and the waffle was soft. I think a little more nutella, maybe a lot more would have made it better. Maybe next time, I’ll just bring my own jar.
The creme brulee Bruxie was awesome. It had seasonal fruit, strawberries at the time, burnt raw sugar, and vanilla creme. At first bite, you immediately get that creme brulee flavor from the burnt sugar. The vanilla creme helps mellow out the strong flavors, and the strawberries were nice inside. I think keeping it simple would have been tasty too — just burnt sugar and vanilla creme.
Brea’s Bruxie is bigger, in a more popular location, and has more items on the menu. It was a treat to try some of their dessert Bruxie sandwiches. Whichever sandwich you go with, you are in good hands.
