DB~ and I were at Phipps on Sunday to see the decorations and check out the hype of that Santa guy.

Afterwards, we took a quick jaunt over to Squirrel Hill for a midday snack at Waffallonia.  Specializing in Belgian waffles, specifically the sugary Liege waffle, we hoped to re-capture a little of the waffle magic from our Euro trip to Brussels this summer.

I had a waffle called Namur (apparently a city, but made me think of Namor the Sub-Mariner) with Nutella and banana slices ($4.50), while DB~ got a waffle with Nutella and whipped cream ($4.50).

The waffles are sugary and very good.  Unlike the waffles your parents made when you were growing up, the mix is not a liquidy mix, but rather a dough that is put on the waffle maker and then pressed hot.  The toppings are generous, but I found them to be a touch overpriced for the size -- they are slightly bigger than a man's hand.

Waffallonia is a great place to get a snack, like we did, as they aren't filling enough for a full meal.  They also have ice cream there, which wasn't appealing on a 20 degree day, but something to keep in mind for a return visit in the summer.


  1. Namor is quite possibly one of the worst "superheroes" ever.

    Aside from that, I like waffles.

  2. In the same "school" of thought, Aquaman is the dumbest superhero. Maybe Ant-Man. Moon Knight was always pretty lame.

    I like waffles, too

  3. Make sure you go back in the summer because the ice cream really adds to the flavor as a whole.

    Also Ant-man movie in 2015 directed by Edgar Wright and starring Paul Rudd, get excited!
