For years, Chris ate Sara's cooking and baked goods. He thought, "we should be getting rich off of Sara's culinary skills." That's probably never going to happen, but in 2020 Chris and Sara decided to take their savings and start a food truck. They decided on liege style waffles, because they're tasty, there wasn't any local options, and they smell delightful (important after working an 8-hour shift on a food truck). In 2021, we started at the LSL Farmers Market with a tent, some tables, and some cheap irons. In 2022, we bought the truck and made it our own. In 2023, we started the WaffleNerd's Bakehouse to offer a brick-and-mortar option for our Waffles as well as allow Sara to branch beyond waffles.
The name of WaffleNerds came up during many brainstorming sessions Chris and Sara had at a local coffee house. Sara thinks she pitched it, but Chris still feels like it was his idea. Anyway, we're both nerds AND...we're both nerds about these waffles.
We get a lot of questions about the style of waffles we serve. While they are Belgian Waffles, the particular style is called Liege, as they're traditionally attributed to the Liege region of Belgium. These waffles might be less popular than their Brussels counterpart (think batter), but they're unique taste and texture are what differentiates them. Liege waffles are made with a yeast dough, which creates a denser consistency than the fluffier version you find at most breakfast shops. Liege waffles also use sugar pearls mixed in with the dough. The combination of the fresh dough, sugar pearls, and proper griddle conditions create a caramelization effect that is truly delicious.
