Off the Waffle, those rascals fronting the new Eugene waffle craze, is no longer serving fruit fillings for their waffles. They say it screws up their waffle-makers, reported my husband, upon his return home with plain waffles in hand. And honestly, I don’t mind. The plain ones are really good. But the goat cheese and fruit combo was kinda brilliant. The waffles now come in white or whole wheat flour.
One of the waffles Retrogrouch got was a dud, apparently, and not up to the owner’s standards, so Omer cooked him up another gratis. I wanted to mention this little gesture because dammit, THIS is the way Eugene business owners can and should act toward their customers. No fake smiles and weird passive-aggressive shit to try to pass off mediocre stuff as jewels. Just a good product and someone who stands behind it. Yay. Thank you.
