It’s true that June 29 is National Waffle Iron Day. What better way to celebrate than ordering up the best waffles in Boston. With such a vast variety of toppings, it’s possible you could try a different flavor every day of the year. Boston has plenty of great restaurants that serve waffles. Here are some of its best.

Cambridge, MA 02138

Order: The Oreo Freakin’ Party

This sweet tooth’s dream begins with Zinneken’s Belgian-style waffle, made from a dense handmade pearl sugar-encrusted dough that caramelizes as it’s cooked. Add toppings of crumbled Oreos, whipped cream and raspberry to this heavenly creation, and you have a Freakin’ Party.

(617) 248-8835

Order: The Belgian Liege Waffle

Saus keeps it simple and true to its Belgian roots. Their homemade Belgian Liege Waffle made with pearl sugar is exactly what you’d expect: sweet and crispy. At $0.75 each, we recommend trying a couple of waffle dipping sauces – perhaps the homemade nutella and the lemon cream.

Order: Banana Split Waffles

This delectable dish barely warrants an explanation. But for the sake of mouthwatering goodness, here goes: Waffles, bananas, vanilla bourbon ice cream, milk chocolate truffle, caramelized rice krispies… You get the idea.

Local 149

149 P Street
South Boston, MA 02127
(617) 269-0900

Order: Chicken and Waffles

The Chicken and Waffles combo needs to be done correctly. Local 149 understands that premise. They take much care in balancing out their fresh raspberry waffles and fried chicken platter with lemon marscapone, and a caramel sherry syrup.
