Wild for Waffles

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.
