Boardwalk Waffles & Ice Cream
Waffles...good. Ice cream...good. Waffles AND ice cream...AMAZING! We hit up Boardwalk Waffles & Ice Cream in Maplewood 2 days after they opened(Grand Opening was on a Saturday). They take St. Louis made Serendipity Ice Cream and sandwich it between fresh made waffles. We love the coastal theme of the shop since we go with a similar vibe with our look. It's a small place so keep your eyes peeled driving down Manchester.
I ordered a half sandwich which is one whole waffle cut in half with 2 scoops of ice cream. You can also get 2 waffles with 4 scoops in the middle(whole sandwich) or half of a waffle cut in half with one scoop(quarter sandwich). I got a scoop of gooey butter and salty caramel swirl in my half sandwich. The fresh warm waffle with the cold ice cream in the middle is a pretty sweet combo. The waffle is really good. I do wish the ice cream scoops were a little bigger but it's probably for the best.
The staff was delightful. We talked to the owner for a few seconds. He is planning to make seasonal waffle flavors in the near future. I think that would be a nice touch. Adding some waffle variety could make building your treat even more fun. There is not much seating inside so don't take a large group hoping to stay there for a while. All in all, we will eat there again. It is a unique treat for St. Louis and we love having more to do, see and taste in our community. I am hoping they do well enough to have a few more locations around town so they are accessible from more of my favorite lunch and dinner spots.
