10 Best Places To Eat Waffles In Brooklyn


It’s #NationalWaffleDay! On August 24, 1869, a man named Cornelius Swartwout received the first U.S. patent for the waffle iron (though it really was just an improvement on existing designs that go back centuries). Want more history of waffles? Mental Floss did an excellent post last year, check it out!

To celebrate, here are a few amazing waffle places in Brooklyn — in no particular order of course.

  1. Sweet Chick (Williamsburg + Prospect Heights)

This cute shop offers delicious waffles as well as fried chicken, desserts, and cocktails. What a combination! It’s become so popular that there are four locations across the country, from the two in Brooklyn, to one in Lower East Side in Manhattan, all the way across the country to Los Angeles.

Obey to the chicken and waffles, with flavoured whipped butter😍 #foodie#nyc

6. Arbuz Cafe (Sheepshead Bay)

Address:1706 Sheepshead Bay Rd 

Arbuz means watermelon in Russian. But what do watermelons have to do with waffles, you may ask? “Just like arbuz, all of our products are light, healthy and refreshing,” their website states. This is mainly a dessert shop, with a great waffle selection: Russian Caramel Sauce with Berries Waffle, Nutella and Banana Waffle, Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffle, and Cream Cheese Waffle (along with many more).

This aesthetic diner is located in Williamsburg, and has just about the most delicious waffles. On its breakfast menu (which is served all day), there’s chicken and waffles with country gravy on the side. Not a breakfast person? Check out the sandwiches, snacks, and burgers instead! But do try out the waffles and let us know what you think!

You may or may not have tried chicken over waffles. But this Caribbean-style restaurant offers salmon over waffles instead, and folks LOOVE them.  Not a salmon lover? They have jerk chicken, too. And if you ever want anything catered, MangoSeed has you covered!

  1. There was a time when you wrote about food with more enjoyment. Instagram photos are great, but you used to know the owners and give interesting insights into each place. It’s hard, because that probably took more time. It was just more fun.

  2. Nate – I’m sorry we’ve let you down. I wish we had more resources – time included, but we will work harder to make sure to d o better.
