Bruges is a chain of authentic Belgian cuisine restaurants that operate in four locations in Utah, in downtown Salt Lake City, Sugar House, Draper, and Provo. Established in 2009, the restaurant is popular for its waffles and is best known as the #1 waffle restaurant in Salt Lake City. Bruges offers only the authentic Liège waffle and Belgian frites. Bruges is also popular for serving the #1 Belgian frites in Salt Lake City. Their frites are hand peeled and made to order every day.
The Bruges waffles are made with a secret Belgian recipe that the co-founders, Pierre Vandamme and Philippe Wyffels, brought with them all the way from Belgium. The co-founders adapted an old family recipe to make the Liège waffle and first started a waffle business on Main Street in Salt Lake City, selling waffles from a vending cart. The duo became popular as Utah's Belgian waffle artists, and very soon added Belgian-style fries called “frites,” to the menu, which also proved to be big hit. The Bruges eateries have earned a lot of media acclamation and a large fan-following since their inception.
