During their open hours, customers can come in and purchase a liege waffle at Fitz Books and Waffles. Liege waffles are caramel-flavored confectionary treats that originate from Eastern Belgium. Fitz makes their waffles with dough rather than batter, and customers can buy either a plain or chocolate flavor. Shoppers can enjoy their waffles as they navigate between bookshelves, or they can head out to the back patio to sit at a table. Visit the shop’s website to order your waffles ahead of your arrival at the store.
