We've all heard that Belgium is famous for it's waffles, but I never knew a waffle could be so good. I stopped by this bright and cheery shop for a late breakfast, and I ordered a waffle with caramel sauce and a cafe americano. While waiting for my waffle to cook, the kind server brought me a tiny ice cream cone with a scoop of vanilla. It was rich and smooth and creamy...a delicious way to whet my appetite. Then came the waffle. Fresh and warm...golden brown...crunchy on the outside, light and airy on the inside, complemented with a delightful sauce of caramel -- sweet, but not cloyingly so. This was a new experience - an epiphany - for my taste buds. It truly is one of the best things I have ever tasted! The whole experience at De Ijsbeer was one of the highlights of my trip to Belgium, and I look forward to a return visit one day. When you are in Bruges, do yourself a big favor and eat here. You will cherish the experience.
