I have sampled many “luikse wafels” from the street vendors in Brussels to the mountains in Park City, and I have to say Marc’s wafels rivals the authentic ones from Brussels! The taste and perfect doughy consistency is spot on. Marc, de wafels zijn perfect gebakken. Ze zijn 100% goedgekeurd in de belgische proef test. Doe zo verder!

I look forward to these truly amazing waffles every weekend. It’s best to eat them when they’re hot and really fresh on Saturday mornings, although they’re delicious anytime. The inside of the waffle is soft and doughy and heavenly while the outside of the waffle is crisp and caramelized. YUM! Genuinely high-quality fare made with great care and expertise. I’m also loving the new little individual bags the waffles come in, which provide much-needed psychoeducation about Tourettes. (They’re also super cute and keep your hands clean!) These waffles, their maker, and the organization they support are an integral part of the Swarthmore community. Whether you’re a Swarthmore resident or a visitor, these waffles are truly a must-have.
