Sunday March 25 is National Waffle Day
The first waffle day originated in Sweden on May 25 as an ode to the beginning of spring and was celebrated with a nationwide, celebratory waffle indulgence. Another waffle day (August 24) was started in the United States honoring the patent of the waffle iron invented by Cornelius Swarthout of Troy, New York.
It seems fitting that there are two days to celebrate the wonderful waffle. Crunchy on the outside, tender and fluffy on the inside, they can be flavored and topped with both sweet and savory items and eaten any time of the day – breakfast, lunch, dinner or even an indulgent midnight snack.
At Eli’s Table, we serve them two ways. Sweet for breakfast and brunch, with fresh berries and powdered sugar. And savory for dinner, with a fan of tender, rosy roasted duck atop savory waffles glazed with malted bacon glaze. Each just beg for a fork, knife to help satisfy a hearty waffle lust any time of the day, any day of the year.
Here’s a link to a recent post from Charleston City Paper extolling the virtues of some of Charleston’s best waffles, including Eli’s Table:
Wishing you a most spectacular National Waffle Day and delicious waffles anytime the waffle craving strikes.

Ruby’s Rodeo from HonkyTonk Saloon
HonkyTonk Saloon Manager Shelly Shattuck tapped into her Cove Oyster Bar & Grille bar manager past, creativity, and love of all things country to come up with this drink as part of a sponsorship campaign with Belle Isle Moonshine and their Sweet Heat Lollipop cocktail garnishes.
“We wanted to give it a country, down-home feel, so that’s where we used Ruby, which is a country girl kind of name. And, here at HonkyTonk we have that Western rodeo theme going on, so hence the name Ruby’s Rodeo. It’s really, really good and both crisp and refreshing. Anyone who loves grapefruit is going to love it and the lollipop adds a nice little spice,” says Shattuck of her libation creation.
To prepare, put the moonshine in a 6-ounce glass. Squeeze in the fresh lemon and orange juices. Top off with Triple Sec and soda water. Serve over ice with a Belle Isle Sweet Heat Lollipop.
(Makes one cocktail)
1 1/2 oz Belle Isle Ruby Red Grapefruit Moonshine
4 fresh squeezed lime wedges
4 fresh squeezed orange wedges
Splash of Triple Sec
Top with Soda Water
And, while you’re out celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day this weekend, don’t forget to stop by Toast!, Toast of West Ashley or Toast of Summerville for a delicious green mimosa, specially priced at just $3.17 each.
