These days if you're not opening a pizza-pie shop a la Pielogy; you're opening a waffle sandwich shop a la Bruxie. I know I've written that sentence before, when the last one of these opened a few months ago. But why should I try to be original?
Let's take a moment to count them, shall we? Main Street Waffle in Huntington Beach. Waffleholic Cafe and Iron Press in Costa Mesa. The diacritic-happy Gaüfreé in Irvine. And I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
Now there's Wafflette Cafe in Lake Forest. You can take a look at the menu here, but I think you already kind of already know what to expect.
Yet if you read the opening line on their website, you'd think that Wafflette Cafe doesn't know that Bruxie and the others exists, or that we haven't a clue what a waffle sandwich even is.
It says: "Waffle Sandwiches? Did you know that Belgian waffles make great sandwiches? You will be surprised once you put them into your mouth."
