Things are still crawling along for Santa Monica’s anticipated Bruxie outlet. The Third Street Promenade space has been foreseen since April, but early plans to actually open doors in September have turned out to be only dreams.

The above shot from the Promenade was taken only days ago, and shows there’s still much work to be done on the former Yankee Doodle space. That’s not entirely surprising, given that the former restaurant tenant was burned-out in a structure fire back in 2013. After all, Tar & Roses nearby was lit aflame back in June and has still yet to return.

When Bruxie does land on the Santa Monica scene, it’ll join another O.C. transplant — the much-anticipated Sidecar Doughnuts — as powerhouses of new casual breakfast dining. Bruxie, based in Anaheim, is of course known famously for its waffle sandwich creations, from bacon, egg, and cheese options to fried chicken fare and even dessert.

Considering the September timeline has come and gone, it’s hard to peg an official new opening date for Bruxie Santa Monica. Their other location scheduled for Las Vegas, between New York-New York and the Monte Carlo, is also currently under construction, and the company at least says they’re hoping for an end-of-year arrival for both.
