One of the most popular places in town, Café Bruges, is a must for those wishing to try its famed twice fried frites (I like mine with the house made curry ketchup), locally raised beef Bruges Burger, or the constantly-changing array of soups, like leek and potato or tomato bisque. Café Bruges offers more than 100 imported Belgian beers and seasonal flights to accompany the Sirloin steak frites or handmade, locally raised beef burger. After a long week of classes and homework, settling into the café’s cozy atmosphere with piping hot frites and good company is a well-deserved escape.
