Now here's a combo I can get down with--waffles and free, live, funk music. Eating waffles is a decadence that I indulge in only occasioally these days. When my husband and I are lucky enough to have a leisurely Saturday morning to enjoy breakfast together I'll often whip up a batch of waffles topped with maple syrup and served with a side of bacon. Yum!
But here comes La Tazza with a whole new spin on the concept--literally. They'll have live music with the Flavour and Theme Trio beginning at 9:00 pm (no cover). And if the music doesn't make you want to dance, the menu will--they will be serving up sweet waffles like classic buttermilk, Belgian style, and even a vegan variety. Savory options include waffles piled with Dinosaur Bar-B-Que pulled pork and waffles stuffed with goodies liked smoked gouda and herbs. Egg sandwiches and paninis round out the menu.
And, according to Marty at the Co-op, they are looking to organic and local sources for many of their ingredients--can you dig it?
Funk 'n Waffles has its grand opening tomorrow. They are still working on their website but keep checking here--they should have more info up soon. They are located in the La Tazza cafe which is located off of South Crouse in the Campus Plaza--downstairs--behind the Marshall Square Mall. Now tomorrow, I'm beginning a three-day juice cleanse and won't be able to get there but I'd love to hear a report. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
