Shaky Alibi

When recounting the machinations that transpired the evening before, especially if it's with a meLANcholy tone, it's imperative that you develop the perfect Shaky Alibi, in case you're ever called to the stand.  

Yay for inside jokes!  

That said, the Shaky Alibi, is more than just a good talk over a cup of coffee kind of locale.  It is home to the Liege Belgium waffle.  Which has already become, in just one visit, my new favorite waffle preparation.  I would describe the process, but their website does it much better...
"A cook of the Prince-Bishop of Liege Belgium invented the Liege waffle in the eighteenth century. The traditional recipe is a closely guarded secret and is smaller, sweeter and denser than the Brussels waffle. The waffle is made from a yeast dough rather than a batter and is coated chunks of Belgian pearl sugar that melt and caramelize creating a slightly crispy shell.

At Shaky Alibi, our authentic Liege waffles are simply delicious. Inspired by Agnes, my German born great grandmother who came from a family of bakers, each Liege waffle is served hot from the waffle iron and handcrafted to your desire. Whether choosing a traditional powdered sugar, fresh fruit, savory or one of our imported Belgian spreads, you’re sure to experience a taste sensation."
I went with the savory, black forest ham & gouda.  To die for.  My partner in crime went with the sweet, strawberries and a drizzle of chocolate.

While I do love the savory/sweet combo, I think next time I might need to mix it up with a little Speculoos, this amazing Belgian spread that's reminiscent of crumbled graham crackers in a yummy whipped paste.  Wonder how to mix that into a savory dish!

It's absolutely a coffee house, with only a counter versus a kitchen.  So don't expect the full breakfast spread if you're coming here... they're limited to waffles, made by the cup coffee & espresso, and what I've been told is spectacular ice cream, worthy of another trip.
