Liege sugar waffles at Mr. Crepe: they're back!

finlero Mar 6, 2008 06:53 AM

The sugar waffles have returned to Mr. Crepe in Davis Square, and they're as sugary and waffle-y as ever. Had one last weekend and it made my morning.

    And now they're gone. Last day for Belgium sugar waffles was April 1. A sad thing indeed.

    In other Davis Square news, looks like a sushi place (Sunny Sushi, possibly?) is taking over the former bakery next to the Dollar Store - that makes three quasi-Japanese places in Davis soon. Any idea on what the story is?

        Stopped by yesterday and had my first- and definitely not last tasty sugar waffle. Thanks so much for posting about this!!! They heated it up for me and it was fab!

          Thanks for lead; I tried unsuccessfully to get one there a year ago and could use a recharge!

            are they made to order? I recall they had them premade and sitting around, they are so much better straight from the iron. I'm addicted to the carmelized sugar on these, thanks for the heads up.

              Using my patented chow hypnosis ninja technique (tm), I've sweet talked them into making them to order if they're not busy, but this is not easy, and it's damn near impossible on weekends.

              Even during a rush, you can ask them to throw it back into the waffle iron for half a minute to warm it up, which does the trick.

                Do you think it would work to bring a premade one home and heat it in a toaster oven?

                  Tough call. The waffles are heavy enough, and with a high enough sugar content, that I could see you winding up with a waffle that was burnt on the outside and still lukewarm on the inside. If you have a toaster oven that will warm evenly at a lower heat, you should be ok. If you were really motivated, I'd imagine you could use a standard oven as well.

                  If you have the time and a Belgian waffle iron, the recipe isn't particularly difficult to make at home. Here's a link from the home cooking board:

              Yippee! I've been waiting to try these all year. I missed 'em by a day, last season.

                when is the ''season''? -- is it weeks or months long?? TIA

                Thanks for the head's up! I know what I'm having for breakfast soon.
