Bruxie recently opened a location in downtown Brea next to the Edwards Theater! This was my second time trying it, and I like the sandwiches even more now. I think I could eat it once a week. The sweet sandwiches like strawberry cheesecake and lemon meringue pie sound great too. Unlike the location by Chapman University, this location has a covered ordering and seating area. The line extends out on the sidewalk, but it goes pretty fast.
Smoked Salmon and Dill Cream Cheese Bruxie for $7.95- This sandwich comes with Michel Cordon Bleu smoked salmon with herb cream cheese, cucumbers, and chives. Great for breakfast too!
Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Waffle for $6.95- This is their most popular sandwich! It comes with a large piece of fried chicken, cider slaw, and chili honey. For $1 more, you can get a side of 100% maple syrup. I think the sandwich is sticky and sweet enough with the chili honey. The waffle also gets greasy with the oil, so I wrapped a napkin around it. It also helps to catch the coleslaw if it falls out. The chicken is so crispy and tender, and I enjoyed every bite. It reminds me of Chick-Fil-A! It’s that good.
Soft serve frozen custard, regular size for $2.95. I’ve never had frozen custard before, so I wanted to try it. It’s very thick and creamy, and it has a milky flavor. Personally, I don’t like milky flavors, so I think this would have tasted better with some kind of fruit or chocolate syrup. I was only able to finish 90% of it.
