“The menu caters to all types of tastes with a blend of European tastes and a hybrid of American fare. It’s easy to find meals more synonymous with country eats sitting on the same page of a menu with orders one would find in a big city." 


 Alan Dale, The Plain Talk

"Our Monte Cristo sandwich was filled with ham and Gruyere cheese, dipped in an egg batter, grilled and served with raspberry dipping sauce. The bread had the crispness of perfectly cooked French toast and could have stood on its own without the sauce. But the raspberry sauce added a sweet brightness to the sandwich." 


Doug Clough for Midwest Living

“If you’re looking for a location that masters both cooking and baking, this family-owned eatery will not disappoint. Stop in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and be sure to top it off with a pastry or dessert. Their Chocolate Stout Cake is to die for!” 



"The restaurant serves homemade breakfast, lunch, dinner, and unique coffee. They are known for a varied menu along with their gourmet options and decadent desserts."

“The restaurant also lives up to its name. Brulé in French means 'torched.' So they offer traditional creme brulé, or torched custard. There's also coffee brulé. Other items getting the flame treatment include macaroni and cheese and French onion soup.” 


Nick Hytrek for the Sioux City Journal

“Café Brulé delivers extraordinary coffee drinks plus lunch-ables like shrimp tacos and SLT sandwiches (think salmon) and a side of — remember these words — potatoes brulé, rich and creamy. Return to breakfast for their famous waffles or Benedicts.”
