It seems like waffles are a big thing all of a sudden! You’ll hear no complaints from me. This week we’re looking at three spots to get some untraditional, often hand-held waffles.
1. Lopaus Point – Lopaus Point creates and sells a gluten-, dairy-, and soy-free waffle that you toast at home. They’re available in flavors like banana flax, wild blueberry, chocolate chip, and pumpkin spice. Find them at Whole Foods, Weiland’s, The Hills Market, and Lucky’s.
2. What the Waffle – Talk about a great name! What The Waffle recently set up shop at the Columbus Food Hub. There isn’t much about them online except for this highlight in the Dispatch. EDIT: here’s their website and Facebook page. But they’re serving 7-11 a.m. Monday-Friday at the Food Hub, 1117 Oak St. in Olde Towne East (Hot Chicken Takeover’s original home).
3. Taste of Belgium – I can’t think of waffles without thinking of Taste of Belgium. They’re well established in the North Market, selling those dense, crispy, caramely Liege-style waffles of theirs. My next wish for them: open a bistro in Columbus, like the ones they have in Cincinnati.
The last Three To Try: Toast
Merry Christmas and Happy Breakfasting!
