Bonte's belgian waffle

From a rec in another thread my wife and I are excited to try this new place. What should we order here considering we'll only be able to try it once!

  1. Well, the plain ones are good, however, you might as well fill it with some good stuff. They have chocolate, white chocolate and a few other things. Get whatever you like and you couldn't go wrong. One last note, they aren't the biggest waffles and a bit pricey for a waffle of the size, they are worth it though.

    1. I don't mind paying a little extra if for something great and it sounds like that's the case here, thanks!

        1. The best are chocolate and banana. Tried the white chocolate and strawberry too but nearly as good.

          1. What exactly is different about a belgian sugar waffle? I feel like I've been hearing about Bonte waffles a lot lately and I'll have to try one soon!

              Unlike what most people think of as "belgian waffles" (tall, normal cakey waffles piled with whipped cream, ice cream, strawberries, etc.), the Bonte waffles are very dense, yeasty, sugar pearls or something throughout the batter that get caramelized when cooked. The "batter" if you can call it that is very stiff -- watch when they make yours to order, it doesn't flow at all but is pressed into the waffle iron. And no toppings - the extra ingredients (chocolate etc.) are in the batter incorporated throughout.
