Our green chile waffles break all the rules. But that’s okay. Because, boy are they good! You may be wondering, are they a sweet dish or a savory dish? This question is debated around our breakfast table by guests and staff alike. While these waffles are savory, most of our guests add maple syrup and take delight in the perfect, crunchy, mixed bite of savory, sweet, and spicy. Plus, you can add a dollop of Avocado Lime Crema!
