Do you like your breakfast to have a little extra oomph? Get the most out of your morning meal with our Espresso Waffles. They’re powered by coffee, with all the delicious flavor of ordinary waffles!

This breakfast is the ultimate antidote to a late night or a sleepy morning. Add a few of our signature pancake breakfast bites to the mix, and you’re really cooking with fire.

Of course, you’ll still make your morning cup of joe. What is breakfast without some kind of caffeine? Still, you can get a little extra kick out of the meal when you pour espresso straight into your waffle batter.

This will give the waffles just a touch of perky espresso and that earthy coffee bitterness. It blends perfectly with maple sugar, so be prepared to eat a whole stack of these espresso waffles swimming in syrup!
