A business looking to bring a Belgian waffle food truck to Wellesley is slated to seek the Board of Selectmen’s blessing next week.
The arrival of the Liege Belgian Waffle Factory, which lists Wellesley Hills as its home, would be something of a breakthrough in Wellesley, which has permitted few food trucks to roam its busy streets (Wellesley’s rules). Exceptions include the occasional ice cream truck, Captain Marden’s truck back in the day and Sam’s Hot Dog Cart.
Rice Burg, which got its start in the food truck business and continues to operate on the streets, pulled a reverse and opened its first brick-and-mortar store in town.
The Waffle Factory’s menu includes an Original Liege Belgian Waffle dusted with powdered sugar, a Lief Waffle with melted Nutella, and an Amai Waffle with molten dark Belgium chocolate and strawberries, among other treats. This should provide a nice alternative to Wellesley’s newer eateries, which tend toward greener stuff or dainty servings.
Wellesley has not been waffle-free until now, though you’ve had to sit down in a restaurant to get hot ones. The Local has an $8 Belgian waffle on its juniors menu, Maugus has waffles running from $7-$10, and Captain Marden’s has waffles going for between $5.50 and $10.
