The Wafel Shop
The Wafel Shop opened on February 4, selling not only the cooked-to-order Belgian (here more specifically designated "Brussels") waffle we're all familiar with, but another kind called the "Liege" waffle. "It's the kind they don't export," says Noah Goldsmith, co-owner, who is often behind the counter himself. The Liege waffle (wafel is the Belgian spelling) comes from the French part of Belgium. Before they're pressed into a waffle iron, they look like scoops of cookie dough, and they taste like a cross between a cookie and a waffle.
