Off the Waffle, an authentic Belgium liege wafflehouse that was started in 2009 by brothers Oman and Dave Orian, recently moved into a more centralized location in downtown Eugene at 840 Willamette Street. The move increased the capacity of the business to facilitate more customers while allowing Off the Waffle to stay true to their local and organic message.
The liege, Off the Waffle’s claim to fame, is an adaptation of brioche. It is made by caramelizing pearl sugar on the cake as it bakes. As Off the Waffle says, “This caramelization is the secret.” But it’s not just sugar that makes the orange fro’s wares such an attraction. It’s also the amazing diversity of flavors that Dave and Omer add.
