There are two major different types of waffles found in Belgium - Liege and Brussels. The Liege is the one that is rough around the edges - it's chewy and you can sometimes taste bits of sugar still in the batter. This is more unique to use in the US. The Brussels waffle is still quite different than the ones we find here (even if a brunch spot dubs it Belgian) - it's light and airy. I'd say what we find here in the US is a mix of the two in terms of texture.
Peck 47 was a great brunch spot that didn't do either Liege or Brussels waffles. But, it must be mentioned since it was my favorite spot for coffee or a snack. They have fresh juices and some delicious, savory waffles like the one pictured to the right (I think it was cheese, leek, and probably bacon flavored). It has great ambiance, but gets packed for breakfast and lunch, so come early or be prepared to wait. Solid coffee to start my mornings.
Right near the Boarse.
