The Best Little Waffle House In Town
I hope you all enjoyed your Valentine’s Day. I had the pleasure of going to brunch at a local joint, Off The Waffle, this past week. Okay let me be clear. I’ve always loved waffles but as of lately it’s all I want to eat. Not sure where this new found love for waffles came from but after going to off the waffle I have to stop myself from indulging in the mornings (LITERALLY SO GOOD).
If you’re a local Eugenian, chances are you’ve already been! Off The Waffle is in the heart of downtown off Willamette Street. With authentic liège waffles and so many amazing options, (PS you can get a mimosa too!) it’s an affordable way to have a quick little brunch on a Saturday or Sunday. Live in Portland? They have a location there too as well as one in South Eugene!
LET’S TALK MENU
My favorite part about off the waffle is the way they designed the menu. Not sure if you’re in the mood for sweet or savory? They’ve got it down in this department. With three sections to pick from: sweet, in between and savory — and of course you can go for the classic O.G. Don’t want just a waffle creation? They’ve also got an omelet with of course a waffle on the side! And guess what? If you love it enough, you can take some home with you too! I have some in the fridge right now and I’m saving them for the weekend.
WHAT I GOT
Honestly, I’m a creature of habit and had already been here but couldn’t remember how I felt about what I ordered. So I did a very me thing and ordered the exact same thing, Goat In The Headlights, a local fave!
Here’s what was in it:
Liège Waffle topped with chèvre (goat cheese), organic avocado, fresh organic basil, two sunny side up organic eggs* topped with paprika and fresh coriander. Drizzled with arbequina olive oil
Of course I had to get a side of fresh squeezed orange juice and I was so glad I did. I was in absolute heaven. Bonus, you can add two strips of bacon. I chose to not get meat and it tasted just fantastic. Then again I’m not a huge fan of bacon ( I KNOW SHOCKER).
WHAT HE GOT
My boyfriend loves his meat and Ron Swanson for that matter. So it was not surprise when he went for the Swanson.
Here’s what was in it:
BASICALLY, if you love bacon and eggs this one is for you. This one is straight and to the point. Comes with a “shot of syrup” for you to indulge and pour over as you wish.
If you’re a local, take a local at their menu! I’m sure you’ll find something you love. On occasion they’ll have seasonal options that you have to try!
