The Waffle Window in Portland, OR is a family-owned restaurant that serves up home-made specialty waffles. The idea for these homemade waffles came about after pastry chef Mary O’Rourke spoke to her son about the waffles he ate while living in Amsterdam, saying that they were the best he had ever had. O’Rourke worked hard to recreate the waffles her son had in Amsterdam with her own little twist. Upon recreating the waffles, O’Rourke decided to renovate a closed-off section of her husband’s current restaurant into a window serving counter for the waffles…and this is how The Waffle Window was born.
