What You'll Get
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as waffles. Jump-start a cunning concealment with today's deal. For $10, you get $20 worth of waffles and coffee at Sweet Iron Waffles in the heart of downtown. If you don't buy $20 worth of specialty snack waffles and savory sips in one visit, the remaining balance will be transferred to a handy gift card for later use.
At Sweet Iron's brand-new location, natural and locally grown ingredients are pressed into cast-iron Belgian waffle irons to create rich, dense waffles in the tradition of Liège waffles from Eastern Belgium. Liège waffles are thick and chewy, with chunks of caramelized sugar pearls throughout, creating a lightly cakey way to satisfy a malnourished sweet tooth. For a fruity treat, snag a banana brulée waffle, topped with Sweet Iron's house-made caramel sauce and whipped cream ($3.99), or the strawberry and whipped cream waffle ($3.99), drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar. If you're craving something savory, try the Applegate bacon waffle ($4.99) or the brie and basil, with imported Val de Soane cheese ($4.99). Wash everything down with a steaming Stumptown latte ($2.90/small) or a doppio espresso ($2), among other liquid wonders. Check out the full menu here.
Sweet Iron's ultra-minimalist décor is awash in clean, white, midcentury modern furniture and a tall open ceiling with exposed piping. Grab a dapper date and come down to Sweet Iron to experience the best-pressed breakfast confection for sweetly breaking any fast.
- Walking into Sweet Iron Waffles...it's the smell of caramelizing sugar that gets you first. Then there's the ritual to watch: Wielding what look like elongated tuning forks, the waffle jockey reaches into the dough-proofing box behind him, spears a blob of dough studded with fat chunks of rock sugar, and plops it into a spot on the iron. Once the machine is fully loaded, he closes the lid, flips the iron over, and does the reverse to the machine next to it, pulling out fat, deeply caramelized Liège style waffles. – Jonathan Kauffman
