Late Night Waffles? Yes, please!
33 Union Street by Faneuil Hall, Boston
We opted for sweet over salty - but the basis of their menu is waffles and frites, with all kinds of homemade sauces. A basic waffle with powdered sugar is $3.75 and then you choose the sauces you want for an additional $0.75 each. Not a bargain, but a fun treat at the end of a night. We went with the homemade nutella sauce, which totally hit the spot. The waffle was still a little crispy, but soft and chewy on the inside - delicious. Other waffle toppings included 'berry berry,' 'salted caramel,' and 'lemon cream.' Next time I'll have to try out the frites, which start out a $4.25 for a 'petite' and go up to $7.00 for a 'big'. Plus they have 12 different homemade dipping sauces for the fries alone! Mm - bacon parmesan, truffle ketchup, green monster and even a little saturday night chive.
The one downfall, for me at least, was the serious number of drunk people there given how late it was, but it is what it is - you're at a late night foodie spot near lots of bars, so if that's not your scene, you've gotten fair warning - just head over earlier in the night! Even though the place is a little small there are some hightops/bar areas to stand area, and some smaller tables with seats, so if you wait a little there'll probably be somewhere to sit to enjoy your belgian deliciousness.
