No need to go to Europe to enjoy Liege-style Belgian waffles. This Philly-area bakery brings the popular street treat to US, so you can experience the joy of biting through the caramelized, crisp, semi-sweet exterior into superbly flaky, buttery, brioche-like waffle goodness—with all the pleasure that’s made this European specialty a favorite for centuries.

About The Food

Forget what you know about waffles. Hand made in small batches from exceptional, all-natural ingredients, Waffatopia’s Belgian waffles start with a dough, rather than a batter, that’s yeast-raised over a two-day process and gives bready, brioche-like results. During cast-iron cooking, the dough gets a coating of special Belgian pearl sugar, which lends in a crispy, crunchy exterior and gorgeous flavor balance to these spectacular European treats. With no syrup or embellishment needed, they’re perfect for a mess-free grab-and-go breakfast, snack, or dessert when topped with ice cream, and whipped cream or fresh fruit. Available in a variety of mouthwatering flavors, they’re also a great for a care package because they’re individually packed for freshness and can be frozen.

Meet The Owner

Like most delicious things, Waffatopia started organically. After a visit to Belgium, founders and college sweethearts Brian and Andrea Polizzi spent seven months attempting to recreate the flavors they’d experienced while walking to the Grand Place with a Liege waffle in a wax paper sleeve. When they served it in their West Chester, Pennsylvania, home for the first time to visiting guests, the reaction was overwhelmingly positive. Soon, the legend of their waffles spread outside the boundaries of family and friends—and became official when Waffatopia® debuted at local farmers markets in Spring of 2013. Since then, the duo and their authentic European waffles have been featured on Food Network and in thousands of food-loving households.

Packaging & Delivery

All waffles from Waffatopia are shipped in recyclable containers with plenty of protective packing materials to assure they arrive in excellent condition within the max allowable transit time of 3 days.

All orders are shipped signature release. This means FedEx will leave the package at the doorstep, front desk or gate associated with the shipping address without requiring a signature upon delivery. It is the customer's responsibility to ensure that the contents of the package are stored in a freezer or refrigerator promptly after delivery. FoodyDirect cannot be responsible for orders with incomplete or invalid addresses, or that are sent to recipients who are not available to store the contents of the order on the day of arrival. FedEx cannot deliver to a P.O. box.

Storage & Care

The waffles should be refrigerated upon arrival, and are best enjoyed within the several days until the “Best By” date marked on each individual waffle. They may also be frozen in their individual package for up to 6 months.

To prepare, follow the warming instructions right on each waffle label for that “right off the iron texture and flavor.” The preferred method is toaster or toaster oven.
