Five weeks, five different sweet and savoury delights – Orleans’ Waffle Month is back and here’s the yummy lineup.

What’s not to love about a waffle? The answer is nothing. The perfect balance between crispy and soft, sweet and savoury. Enjoy them with lashings of syrup, piled with fried chicken or sprinkled with sugar – they really are a versatile treat. To celebrate all things waffle, Orlean’s ‘Waffle Appreciation Month’ is here. Every Wednesday in August, Orleans will debut a new waffle special for you to devour. The special will run from between 12pm—4pm, so make sure that weekly reminder is set. If you missed this week’s Maple, Bacon and Swiss cheese special – don’t despair, because there’s plenty more where that came from.
