6 Places to Get Fluffy Waffles in Westchester

Whether on International Waffle Day or any day of the week, here are some standout waffle choices throughout the county.

On March 25, we’re celebrating waffles worldwide (apparently August 24 is National Waffle Day – we’re not complaining that we get to celebrate twice!). And while most of us grew up only eating waffles for breakfast, we’re happy to report that these crispy, dimpled treats are now served all day long. Here’s six different ways to enjoy them this weekend (and all year long).

Classic: Do as the Belgians Do

In the battle for waffle supremacy, the Belgians come out on top every time. At Antoinette’s family-run patisserie and coffee shop in Hastings-on-Hudson, get there in the morning before the 1 p.m. closing to order the Belgian staple, and get it with a generous dollop of crème fraiche and fresh fruit. At Eatarry in Tarrytown, expect the classic Belgian waffle, served with fresh fruit and New York-sourced maple syrup. Wash it all down with some Silver Tips tea or Coffee Labs coffee, sourced just down Main Street.

Crazy: With a Side of Bone Marrow

Only The Cookery in Dobbs Ferry would put waffles with bone marrow on its brunch menu. Crazy at it sounds, warm cornmeal waffles are kind of the perfect vehicle for scotch marrow butter, maple-braised blueberries, and mint.

Savory: Stuffed Every Which Way

At Wild Culture Waffles, it’s all about the batter and, well, also the stuffing. As the word “culture” in the name suggests, Wild Culture’s waffles are sourdough. Yes, there are scintillating sweet options, but veer to the savory side to see what these waffle experts — wife-and-husband team Gaby Montiel and Miguel LaCruz — can do. Try the Green Eggs & Ham waffle, stuffed with a spinach, egg, and Parmesan custard, with ham in the batter and drizzled with maple syrup. Gruyere fans are also in luck, with several items incorporating the melty cheese in the batter. Seasonal specials can include curry-butternut squash stuffing; creamy feta with sesame seeds and honey; or spinach, ricotta, and Parmesan cream. The place, nestled back from the road in Hastings-on-Hudson, is open only 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday and Friday with more hours on weekends.

Sweet and Savory: Serve It up With Fried Chicken

The ultimate sweet-savory matchup, this Southern staple works for just about every meal. One of our favorite spots to try it: The Wooden Spoon in New Rochelle, where the two pieces of fried chicken are super crisp and perfectly seasoned and come with a butter drizzle and syrup on the side.

With an Asian Flair: Mochi Waffle

Although Goosefeather in Tarrytown is best known for its incredible dinner menu, the brunch menu serves up amazing twists on traditional brunch dishes. The real star here, of course, is the mochi waffle. You can order it alone as a side (do this no matter what else you do), or you can experience an innovative take on a Southern classic: Kung Pao chicken with mochi waffles, topped with hot honey in lieu of maple syrup.

Fruity: Orange Lemon Waffles

Sick of the regular waffle toppings? White Plains gem City Limits Diner features a fruity take on the breakfast staple (served all day). Try the orange and lemon waffle, topped with seasonal fruit and served with 100% Pure Goodrich’s Farm Vermont Maple Syrup, for a citrusy celebration for International Waffle Day.
