Sunday at the waffle stand
excuse me while I wax poetic about one of my favorite places on this earth.
The waffle stand.
Flavour Waffle Stand is a little blue cart off of Lombard in North Portland not too far from our house. It is simply in the parking lot of a Videorama movie rental store and it is a tiny blue cart that serves nothing but waffles.
Waffles with thin slices of Black Forest ham and melted smoked gouda, waffles with turkey and melted havarti with a couple slices of crisp bacon thrown in... sweet waffles with whipped cream, maple syrup, nutella or fudge and raspberry jelly.
Or you can just have a plain old delicious waffle. All wrapped up in a warm piece of parchment and foil.
There is even a picnic table nearby and wifi. People walk their dogs and ride their bikes from the nearby neighborhoods to celebrate morning with a fabulous breakfast that you can eat with one hand.
It is so Portland.
It is sublime.
