What is a Bruxië? It's a gourmet waffle sandwich that begins with a light, airy, yeasty and crispy Beligan waffle, and is filled with sweet or savory delights!
The name “Bruxië” is made by combining three ingredients: the “Brux” comes from the French spelling of Brussels, which is "Bruxelles."

In a move to redevelop its downtown, Brea gussied up the area around Birch Street
and Brea Boulevard in the late 1990s. Today it’s still going strong, anchored by a pair
