With a broken refrigerator and no food to prepare at home, Stacy and I wanted to visit something new (to us) for breakfast this past weekend. I'd heard of the WafflesINCaffeinated restaurant in New Brighton Pa. We've never made the trek because of the drive, but the newer location in the South Side made it an easy choice.
The restaurant is located on Carson Ave. in the Southside Works. They have seating outside and the dining room is clean and pleasant although sparsely decorated. We were seated at a two seat table that was very small (one of my pet peeves in restaurants) but that was the only misstep.
As their name imply's, waffles are the specialty but they also make a variety of other breakfast choice. We both decided to try one of the waffle choices and Stacy went with the Souther' which is described as:
Some like it hot! waffle filled with chorizo sausage, fresh jalapenos and cheddar cheese, topped with fresh pico de gallo, a fried egg* your way and garnished with fresh cilantro.
I couldn't turn down the Benny, described as:
Classic eggs benedict with our own waffle twist! two perfectly poached eggs* nestled on top of a half waffle with ham, fresh hollandaise sauce. and crab meat!
Both were truly excellent! My eggs were poached perfectly, and the waffle was a great compliment to the ham and hollandaise sauce. On top of that, the prices for each were quite reasonable at $8.95.
Without question, we will make this a regular weekend breakfast stop.
WafflesINCaffeinated is located at 2517 E. Carson St in Pittsburgh.
