In 2007, Jean-François Flechet brought back a 120lbs cast iron waffle maker from his native Belgium. He began baking the waffles he grew up with at the back of a produce store at Findlay Market. After a few weeks, the store was too congested with waffle-eating-people and the owner of the produce store told Jean-François we needed to find him a new home. The little waffle place grew, one waffle at a time to become a new Cincinnati favorite. From one person and a waffle iron, Taste of Belgium expanded into multiple food establishments including a full service restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and a unique weekend brunch with a large selection of Belgian beers and a wide selection of Genevers (Belgian national alcohol and the mother-of-all-gins).
Off the hook atmosphere that is combined with authentic Belgium cuisine. We will be back
Stopped at Taste of Belgium-Rockwood (Edwards rd). Ordered the Waffle & Chicken I just wasn't in the mood for anything sweet. Their waffles are small about the size of a medium burger bun. But pleanty of flavor. They are also dense in a good way. The Ohio maple syrup is a nice touch. I could smell the hot sauce and was a little worried but it was unfounded. It wasn't as hot as it smelled; also the waffle, chicken and maple syrup tamed it very well. The side salad was undressed which was good when added to a piece of chicken. They also make a mean Caffè Americano. Service was perfect. Prices were good maybe a 1/3 of a $ high.
