Bruges Belgian Bistro doesn’t just serve up some of the greatest Belgian foods in Salt Lake City but comes with an incredible start-up story. Pierre Vandamme, from Brugge, Belgium, moved to Salt Lake City in 2004 and adapted a family recipe for Liège waffles, selling them from a vending cart on Main Street. His success at the Downtown Farmers Market led to adding Belgian-style fries and dipping sauces. This popularity allowed Pierre to open a year-round spot on Broadway. In 2010, his brother-in-law Frederic joined the business, and they opened a second restaurant in Sugar House in 2012. By 2014, Bruges Waffles and Frites launched a vintage-style Waffle Bus and later the Brugesmobile. Today, the family operates two stores and two food trucks, for sharing their authentic Belgian treats! For catering, you have the choice of ordering buffet style at your venue or renting their Waffle Bus or Brugesmobile!
