Sometimes you can get in trouble for waffling, especially when confronted with pressing political issues or questions about how exactly you managed to come home really late last night sans pants. Fear not, these spots encourage waffling, and they don’t care at all if you happen to be missing your trousers.
Best known for its lines, I mean, its epic fried chicken, this beloved Burnside brunch destination also makes fantastic waffles—big golden yeasty slabs the size of hub caps, topped with slabs of bacon (aka the praline bacon waffle) and lots of whipped cream.
There’s much to love about this PDX dining mainstay—the cool sunken space, the convivial communal dinners that guarantee fast new foodie friendships, and the weekend brunch menu--try their legendary fried chicken and waffles.
It's easy to miss this humble little cart stuffed into the SW Alder & 9th pod, but the goat cheese mousse, honey roasted pistachios & balsamic caramel-topped Milk & Honey Liege waffle is well worth the search. Open on weekends for brunch too!
A perfect example of why we need more holes in the walls, especially ones that serve fat golden Liege waffles smothered in whipped cream and berries, dipped in chocolate, or supporting a huge ice cream sundae. (There are savory options too, if you must.)
You’ll spot these carts from miles away, and the bawdy burlesque-ish color scheme predicts the good time you’ll have with the menu—think prawn baguettes, fried boquerones, and chorizo & chips. And come daybreak, you really must get the Trashy Breakfast–bacon baked into a waffle, and topped with fried eggs.
The savory waffles are an ideal hand-held meal, and I always intend to stop after the ham & Gouda, but how, HOW do you pass up the Nutella & marshmallow fluff-filled S'mores Waffle?!?
