Coincidentally I was watching the Food channel and they were talking about Liège waffles. Turns out what we Yanks think are Belgian waffles are better known as Brussels waffles. The Belgians have another waffle they've been hiding from us called Liège waffles from Liège. These waffles start out with brioche bread dough with sugar pearls. The show continued on to talk about the waffle truck in NYC but as it turns out it was Throw Down with Bobby Flay. Moment I realize that, I changed the channel. I can't stand him.
Anyhoo, the Liège waffle is what they serve at Sweet Iron. The waffles are delicious with little pockets of caramelized sugar. According to the show, these waffles are typically eaten plain. But I've only sampled the waffle with extra toppings. My favorite is the bacon & brie. First, bacon makes everything better. But the creaminess from the brie cuts down on the overall sugar. Am I losing my sweet tooth?
The biggest problem with Sweet Iron are the hours and location -- at least on evenings and weekend. First, they're not open in the evenings. I mostly dessert in the evenings so that's kind of a problem for me. Second, they are only open until 2 on weekends. Then it's just far enough outside of the shopping district for there to be any convenient parking. It's on 3rd where there's no parking on the street. If Sweet Iron moved to Fremont/Ballard/Capitol Hill I'm sure it would do totally awesome -- especially if they had some evening hours. But as it is, it's kind of inconvenient and it serves dessert when I was breakfast.

OMGOSH ... Can I Has Moar?!
Hello delightful, tiny little shop with all of 4 seats and two beefy men working the griddle, how have I missed you so many times over?
This place is so unassuming from the outside but full of enthusiasm and expectation on the inside. It's located in a more business-like district in Seattle and their waffles here are definitely serious business.
From the sweetness of the dough to the caramelized bananas on my self requested nutella waffle, every bite was a little bit of dessert heaven all wrapped up in a small disposable plate in this cute little shop. I don't even like sweets and when I do it's very ... boring so this place really spiced things up for my sweet taste buds. The waffles come quick and you can also get them to go, but don't forgo the experience of sitting inside the almost art exhibit like interior to enjoy your delicious, fresh and hot waffle!
