No, it’s not a spelling mistake. Remember the Cronut? Then along came the Bruffin. Now it’s time to make room for the Creffle. It’s what happens when a Belgian waffle, a French Crepe and a Chinese eggete become one. The Creffle is the namesake dish at a coffee shop now open on the LES- Creffle Cafe at 115 Stanton Street.
The co-owner Alan Tak, spent three months experimenting before finally making what he believes is the perfect dessert: a “creffle” – “It’s crispy on the outside [and] it’s light and fluffy on the inside,” said Tak.
The creffle is made in a special hexagonal iron, which creates the oval imprints that give creffles a texture similar to eggettes. On the inside, they are soft like a crepe. You can eat them plain, or add toppings like fruit, nuts, chocolate and whipped cream.
The coffe shop is brand new, so they are still working on their website, but you can find more information and photos on their Facebook Page.
