Waffle Restaurant Opens in New York City's East Village

More great news for foodies in New York City: While the popular food trucks serve up great snacks and meals, their ambiance can leave a bit to be desired. (Unless they're parked by a park. Then the ambiance is great.) But city website Gothamist is reporting that Belgian food truck Wafels & Dinges has opened its first permanent cafe in the city's East Village on 2nd Street just north of Houston. 

The cafe will reportedly serve waffles as well as espresso and coffee (we hear the beans are from the Brooklyn Roasting Company). The doors open early so locals can come by for pre-work snacks like the  "Wake Up, Grumpy," a wafel-biscuit with egg, bacon and cheese and "De Bastogne Wafel" from the Belgian Ardennes, made from potato and topped with sour cream and prune syrup.

Customized waffle (erm, wafel) toppings (called "dinges") include dulce de leche, Nutella and whipped cream, and guests can choose between a Brussels-style confection (crispy) or the Liège style (chewy). Sundaes and ice cream shakes (using all-organic products, we hear) will also be available.
