A meal with friends soothes the soul, much like a mother’s hug or a movie about brave dogs learning to read. Enjoy a feel-good feast with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get brunch for two at Waffles (up to a $39.80 total value). Brunch includes the following:
- Two waffle, egg, or sandwich entrees (up to a $12.95 value each)
- Two hot-chocolate flights (a $6.95 value each)<p>
At Waffles, french irons press out a menu of savory and sweet noshes, including fluffy Brussels waffles made from an airy batter base and Liege waffles weighted down with a dusting of caramelized pearl sugar inside and out. Slow-roasted pork shoulder elbows its way into the waffle Benedict, in which poached eggs tower and Aleppo hollandaise caps peaks for an edible diorama of New Zealand.
Red-velvet waffles topped with cherry compote, whipped cream cheese, and candied walnuts morph dessert into the main morning course, and the steak and egg torta fulfills daily protein quotas with a fried egg crowned in ribbons of strip loin, avocado, and heirloom-bean spread. Brunch dates commence as diners gulp a flight of cocoa libations in a 2,300-square-foot space bordered by striped walls as colorful as a sass-talking rainbow.
Waffles’ lineup of sweet and savory brunch dishes "taps the full potential of its namesake dish," according to Time Out Chicago, which named it the city's Best New Breakfast of 2012. French irons press out a menu with two distinct styles of waffles: fluffy brussels waffles made from an airy batter base and liege waffles caramelized with pearl sugar inside and out. Like spies at a candy factory, chefs fill pockets with sweet flavors, including specialty options such as the green-tea waffle with lemon-ginger chantilly cream. Alternatively, savory waffles adopt toppings such as slow-roasted short rib and pork-and-lamb meatballs.
A selection of egg dishes, sandwiches, and salads can also be washed down with pours of freshly squeezed juice or a flight of specialty hot chocolates. During open hours (8 a.m. to 3 p.m.), guests enjoy ample elbow room in the 2,300-square-foot space, where picnic benches and chairs line striped walls as colorful as a sass-talking rainbow.
