Greenville's popular Smash Waffles delivery service has expanded with the opening of its first brick-and-mortar location, at 718 Dickinson Ave. in the uptown business district.
Founders Justin Cox and Hunter Harrison have plans for others in Raleigh, Durham and Wilmington.
The menu features a variety of Belgian waffles, made with dough not batter.
Smash Waffle's five original flavors are: The Swirly Sin, with brown sugar butter sauce, cream cheese icing and cinnamon sugar; The Quilted Pig, with maple icing, candied bacon crumbles and powdered sugar; The Chip Chip Hooray, with cookie butter, chocolate sauce and mini chocolate chips; The Cereal Thriller, with sweet cream icing, Fruity Pebbles and powdered sugar; and The O.G., with honey, O.G. Sauce and powdered sugar. There is also special surprise Waffle of the Week (#WOW).
Cost is $3 for one, $8 for three, $15 for a six and $21 for a dozen.
Three savory waffle-wiches, $4 each, have been concocted for the cafe. The Happy-Go-Clucky features two Belgian waffles sandwiching a fried chicken breast with liquid gold syrup and powdered sugar. The BFF is a Belgian waffle sandwich with crispy bacon, fried egg and white Cheddar cheese. And The Chatty Patty has a sausage patty, fried egg and Cheddar cheese.
Ice Cream Waffle-wiches, for $5, include two Belgian waffles and vanilla ice cream. The Campfire has graham cracker crumbles, Nutella sauce and sweet cream sauce. The Nutjob has candied pecans and maple and brown sugar butter sauce. And The Celebration Ice Cream Waffle-wich has rainbow sprinkles and sweet cream sauce.
"The coffee is as important as the waffles," Hunter said. "We wanted it to be simple for customers, so we created 11 lattes with cool names. Justin and I wanted to create the craziest lattes we could think of."
The Kumbaya features toasted marshmallow syrup chocolate sauce and graham cracker crumbles. The Cookie Monster includes cookie dough syrup, cookie butter sauce and cookie crumbles. The Full Moon features white chocolate syrup and chocolate sauce. And The Troublemaker includes bourbon caramel syrup, vanilla syrup and brown sugar butter sauce.
The lattes are served hot, iced or blended and cost $4 for a 16-ounce cup.
