This mod eatery—so contemporary it has a conference room—specializes in two versions of its eponymous breakfast food: a crisp and airy Brussels waffle, and a dense and sugary Liége waffle. Both types are prepared expertly, and shine on their own. But when topped (Waffles offers toppings from cream cheese to meatballs), things get riskier. On the Mexican chocolate Brussels waffle, the combination of orange and chocolate works, but a savory pork shoulder only fights with the sweet Liège waffle it tops. Best to get these things served plain.
