Where to find real French crepes—and Belgian waffles

repes are surprisingly underrepresented around here, but Mr. Crepe is all about them, from savory crepes like brie, spinach, mushroom and basil, to such sweeter fare as lemon and sugar, or nutella with fruit. Well, it’s not actually all about the crepes. The real gem here is the Belgian sugar waffle, which isn’t always available but is worth the wait. The sweet, steaming traditional waffles come shining in caramelized, sugary bliss. In warm months, grab a table outside to people-watch. Moskal

Belgian waffles, which are higher and deeper than conventional waffles because they use yeast batter instead of pancake batter, were introduced to America at the 1964 New York World’s Fair.
