ABOUT SWEET IRON WAFFLES
Sweet Iron is a local business owned by Adrienne Jeffrey, her husband John and their two adult children Paul and Danielle. Adrienne lived in Brussels as a teenager and was puzzled as to why all of the “Belgian waffles” in America were based on the Brussels waffle and ignored the waffles found in the city of Liège, Belgium. After dreaming about introducing Liège-style waffles to the U.S. for decades, she and her daughter Danielle traveled to Belgium in 2007 to learn how to make Liège waffles and to source the waffle irons and pearl sugar that are essential to making the authentic waffles. Sweet Iron opened its first shop in 2009 in downtown Seattle and continues to grow in exciting partnerships and expansions. This past summer, Sweet Iron set up shop at Safeco Field for the Mariners’ games and also combined forces with Ezell’s chicken during Sounders and Seahawks games to make the classic chicken and waffles. In November a second store was opened at 1416 10th Ave. in Capitol Hill and offerings expanded to include freshly squeezed juices, beer and wine, and later hours. Thanks for coming by!
