I was born and lived in Liège, Belgium.
In 2004, I moved to America. I soon found the "Americans' idea" of "Belgian waffles" not to be the sweet tasting traditional variety that most Belgians enjoy. In 2007 when I moved to Florida, I decided to introduce the "Authentic Belgian waffle" and started to bake them at local farmers' markets.
Sylvia's Authentic Belgian Waffles are made from a 400 year old recipe. They are a scrumptious breakfast & dessert or a great snack to be eaten warm or at room temperature, with or without toppings.
Since July we have a cafe located 2152 Drew Street, Clearwater, FL 33759. We are open for Breakfast and Lunch
(7:30 am to 2:30 pm Tuesday to Sunday).
We also work at the Saturday Morning Market in St Pete from October to May
We refuse to compromise on quality that's why our waffles and their toppings are always fresh.
To be sure everybody can find a waffle baked the way they need, we bake regular authentic Belgian Waffles, gluten free waffles, vegan gluten free
waffles and Liege Waffles on site.
At our cafe, you can eat sweet and savory waffles (and some salads/wraps). At the markets we only sell sweet waffles.
The "Liège Waffle" is the "common" Belgian waffle (the one you'll find everywhere on the streets in Belgium). It is made with a "pearl sugar" imported from Belgium which caramelize throughout the waffle in the waffle-maker giving the "Liège Waffle" a sweet crunch.
A special sugar imported from Belgium is in the batter so our waffles are sweet (no need of syrup).
Different flavors are available:
At the markets: Traditional, Cinnamon and Chocolate Chip.
At the cafe: You can add in the batter: Banana, Blueberry, Coconut, Peach, Pineapple, Raspberry, Strawberry.
For the ones who prefer to eat gluten free or vegan, we bake also our waffles with a gluten free flour and the vegan option. We keep our delicious recipe so you can enjoy a traditional, or non dairy chocolate chips or cinnamon gluten free or vegan gluten free (or with gluten) waffle.
We also have non dairy whipped cream.
As a savory waffle, we have a Vegan vegetable gluten free waffle.
The Ham and Cheese waffle (or Bacon and Cheese waffle) is a the perfect waffle for lunch or light dinner. A few Belgian spices added to the batter make it delicious. Eaten with ketchup or ranch sauce or even hot sauce ... add a light salad and voila...
We couldn't miss this one... Grilled chicken with our Belgian waffles. Surprising and different... still great to eat... your choice for the sauce" BBQ, Thousand Island, Ranch or Hot.
Made with ham or turkey or bacon or spinach and cheese, these omelets with a waffle shape are a delight.
