I had wanted to try The Wafel Shop ever since I first saw their coming soon sign while the shop was still under construction. The Wafel Shop offers two types of traditional wafels, the liege and the Brussels. The liege wafel is denser and sweet and the Brussels wafel is lighter and crispy. Both Dave and I ordered a liege wafel. I had mine topped with Nutella and almonds and Dave tried bananas and caramel sauce. I really enjoyed mine and was very happy with my topping selection. Dave liked his as well, but wanted more caramel sauce. Dave also wished for more pre-made options, like the Lumberjack (bacon and maple syrup) or the Belgium Elvis (bananas, Biscoff, and bacon).
The Wafel Shop’s prices are a bit on the high side. The base wafel (either type) is $5 and toppings are either $1 to $2 each. They do offer a few free toppings, including butter, syrup, powdered sugar, and chocolate shavings. When you order a wafel at the Wafel Shop, you’re receiving a fresh, handmade item created with locally sourced ingredients and that makes them more expensive. Even knowing that, I wish they were cheaper!
I would return to the Wafel Shop, I’d love to try their Biscoff latte once it gets cold outside, but probably not as often as I would have given their prices. I would however, recommend that everyone try the Wafel Shop because they are still darn tasty despite the price!
