Waffle Dawg is a place where that popular wake-up cake can finally escape from the world of melancholy breakfasts. The shop’s waffles, which come in standard, blueberry, bacon, and chocolate-chip varieties, are the foundation for some imaginative sweet and savory concoctions. One hot dog mashed between two waffles. Two scoops of ice cream melting on a waffle. Three toppings of your choice—say fruit, nuts, and whipped cream—smothering a waffle. Marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers making you think about s’mores on a waffle.
It’s also possible to say no to waffles and stick with Waffle Dawg’s dogs, such as the Dirty Dawg with heaps of chili and cheese. Stuffed pretzels, Otter Pops, muffins, and lots of other snacks pile up inside the shop’s bright red, green, and blue walls, so no one can force you to break your waffle fast—not even Waffle Dawg’s waffle-cape-wearing mascot, who is made of ferocious cardboard and eats rusty cars for breakfast.
