Anyone know where to find them in Manhattan?

    Starbucks and Whole Foods. Seriously.

    But neither are as good as the ones in Amsterdam.

      Starbucks has stopped serving them. You can get them off the internet. Coffeecakes.com

            Question somewhat off tangent. When I was in Amsterdam, I had a waffle from a pushcart that I have never been able to find. It wasn't like the thin tuilles that I picture with stroopwafel. Instead, it resembled a thinner belgian waffle. It was buttery and crusty with sugar that almost seemed baked into the waffle rather than dusted over the top. I am crushed that I didn't have more of them while I was there years ago.

            Do you have any idea what this was? Was it, in fact a stroopwafel?

              Not sure what this is called but I believe you can get these at Petite Abielle (sp?). Kind of like a less perfect looking waffle (no perfect rimmed border like belgian waffles) and it is definitely sweet.

                I'm not in NY so my best hope is to make them myself. Any idea what they are called? A style indicator even?

                  Yes, it sounds like you are describing the Gaufre de Liege at Petite Abeille.

                Oren's coffee shops had them. Also, le pan quotidian has similar waffle-like treats packaged to go.

                  The one's in Starbucks were too small to rest atop a coffee cup, the ones on Coffeecake.com look like the larger ones....so good after the caramel melts from the warmth of the coffee....oh I want one now!

                      and they're really good... in my opinion. chewy and very snack-able
