Authentic Belgian Waffle Shop Opens in Newark

Share

Newark’s Main Street seems to have it all these days, from cool coffee shops and clothing stores to an ever-expanding restaurant scene. But that didn’t stop Jeanne Krause of Elkton from considering the college town for her new business, The Perfect Blend, which opened on Aug. 16. The sweet shop sells her homemade Belgian Liege waffles, a Belgian delicacy made with sugar pearls that has a sweet, buttery consistency—no syrup needed.

“I wanted to do pie initially but I can’t bake pie, so I started with the American waffle, then discovered the Belgian Liege waffle and never looked back,” says Krause. The waffles are delicious as is, but Krause offers a dizzying array of toppings and sauces, like fruit, Nutella, crushed bacon, caramel sauce and chocolate. Be sure to wash your waffle down with a cup of Pike Creek coffee, a frozen hot chocolate or a Nitro coffee, a cold-brew coffee infused with nitrogen gas.
