When her two sons came back from Europe raving about the traditional\
\ liege sugar waffles, Mary did what any good mom and professional pastry chef would\
\ do: she learned how to make them. \nBut Mary wasn't content with mere imitation–\
–she wanted her waffles to be something unique, and so she spent several weeks crafting\
\ her own super-secret recipe that blended Belgian-style traditions with hard-to-source\
\ ingredients. After all that work, she knew her waffles were made for more than\
\ just maple syrup, and a slew of waffle-based dishes\
\ was born, incorporating toppings that include everything from thick-cut bacon\
\ and housemade salsa to scoops of small-batch ice cream and Guittard chocolate.\
\ Soon, she began serving the treats out of a converted Dutch-style door window\
\ in her husband’s Bread & Ink Café, and her waffles quickly gained enough acclaim\
\ to be featured in Bon Appetit, as\
\ well as an episode of the TV show Portlandia.\n\n
\ from two locations, the staff still gives diners the option to devour their waffles\
\ on the go, but welcomes guests to linger longer in the warmth of covered indoor-\
\ and outdoor-dining spaces. There, steaming cups of locally-roasted Kobos coffee\
\ and glasses of blackberry-basil lemonade help wash down the waffley goodness,\
\ while a full line of frozen take-home waffles await to be warmed in home toasters\
\ or Mrs. Butterworth's loving embrace."
