Cocoa chocolate shop owner Angela Ingrao has opened this chocolate bakery and café across the street. There’s chocolate bread, chocolate croissants, homemade Mallomars, savory tarts, and made-to-order Belgian waffles ($4.25) from a cast-iron Belgian waffle maker. Don’t expect the overly sweet, cratered blocks found at IHOP or Denny’s but instead a mild tasting and crispy textured golden cake. Toppings include powdered sugar and/or one of four sauces: chocolate, raspberry, caramel, and maple syrup.
The most celebrated Belgian street food gets a righteous tribute at this chocolate bakery and café owned by Angela Ingrao of Cocoa, the to-die-for chocolate shop across the street, and Laurie Vanderwoude. From a cast-iron Belgian waffle maker come made-to-order, warm, soft-on-the-inside-and-slightly-crispy-on-the-outside Belgian waffles ($5). Toppings include powdered sugar and/or one of three sauces: chocolate, caramel, and maple syrup. Oh yes—the moist double-chocolate pound cake sold here is also a must-try.
