belgian waffles

hi all
i was wondering if anyone knew a place where i could get some fresh belgian waffles, im not talking the breakfast kind with tons of toppings, i want real waffles warm dusted with sugar preferably from a bakery
i had to give in to the dismal ones at metro to calm down my craving but it just wont go away

  1. ha if you're referring to the ones in peel station, unfortunately those are the only ones i know off. besides that i've seen them in suite 88 chocolate shop on maisonneuve, but they were in a big glass jar and really didn't look appetizing at all.

      If they're not made fresh there's really no point. I know the crepe stand at JTM makes them, but I find their crepes pretty unexceptional despite the upscale pricing so I've never been tempted to try the waffles. I did try their gaufre li├Ęgeoise and found it disappointing.

    2. haven't tried them yet, but a few months ago, the owner of Copette et Cie cheese shop told me that they make some every Sunday . His wife's family is from Belgium, and apparently they are pretty authentic.
      4560 Wellington, corner 2nd ave

      1. i've had a pretty decent one at a chocolate shop on st-denis (the name escapes me right now) but it's in a shop where the wall is all in white.. near rachel

          Is that Suite 88 Chocolatier? Just a guess, I've never actually had waffles from there, just chocolate and gelato :)

            Suite 88's waffles are good. I don't know how often they make them (I assume they're made in-house) but they are certainly worth trying.

        2. You can get gaufres li├Ęgeoises made with maple sugar at Espace Europea Boutique (33 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest). When I had it they made it to order. It was quite delicious, and the most authentic gaufre I've had in Montreal. And don't forget to pick up a maple marshmallow while you're there. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
