Eat and Drink Waffles that could convince Leslie Knope to relocate to NYC By amNY.com staff Updated August 24, 2018 2:46 PM Print Share fbShare Tweet Email "Parks and Recreation" is long over, but Leslie Knope and Ron Swanson's passion for breakfast will never disappear. We found the city's best, coolest and most interesting waffles to lure Ms. Knope to a new political scene. As she once said: "I mean, am I living the dream? I don't know. Did I also just walk past a food truck and buy myself a waffle sundae? Yes!" Totally possible in New York City. Indulge with one of these treats.

A shot of chocolate is served on the side, for those who know there's no such thing as too sweet. The waffles are priced at $12 each.

The Throwdown Wafel (pictured) coats the truck's soft-baked treat with Speculoos Cookie Butter spread and whipped cream. A waffle ice cream sandwich stuffs vanilla between two mini Belgians and the De Turtle Wafel is perfect for chocolate lovers -- a fudge, walnut and dulce de leche-coated treat. Waffles start at $7.58. (Various locations in Manhattan, dinges.nyc) Clinton Hall's tiered creations Photo Credit: Clinton Hall Is it dessert or breakfast? Clinton Hall lets you decide with its colossal waffle offerings. There's the Elvis, a peanut butter, banana and bacon waffle sandwich served with the King's glasses and fruit sideburns, the birthday cake, a double-decker sandwich topped with a cone and sparkler candle, and many more. Recommended to end the summer, though, is the s'mores, a three-tier waffle packed with toasted marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate sauce. Maybe bring someone along to share.

The dessert that took Smorgasburg by storm in 2015 should be on your short list. The egg-based waffles twist into a cone and perfectly cup your favorite flavor ice cream, fruits and other toppings such as Pocky and fruity cereals. The vendor is newly available at Citi Field for the 2018 season and can be found at Smorgasburg Williamsburg and Prospect Park through October.

The Parker New York Hotel restaurant (you know, the one that's known for its $2,000 omelet) serves the specialty daily until 3 p.m. Given the pricey context, you'll understand why the waffle will set you back $31.
