Belgian Beer & Waffle To Open Soon In San Diego's North Park

September 10, 2019

The culinary minds behind San Diego's hit pâtisserie Le Parfait Paris held a soft opening last night in North Park Belgian for Beer & Waffle, a fast-casual waffle concept with a menu based around savory & sweet Belgian street food.

Husband-and-wife French natives Guillaume & Ludivine Ryon first launched Le Parfait Paris as a farmers market vendor in 2013 before opening their full-service downtown cafe in 2014. The duo has also launched a micro-location within Liberty Public Market and opened Terrace Tap outdoor kiosk bar within the food court at Fashion Valley Mall. The Ryon's are also opening a location within Del Mar's incoming The Sky Deck and will operate the onsite cocktail bar there in partnership with Scott Slater. Their next endeavor has installed in a former Starbuck's location in the heart of San Diego's North Park.

Belgian Beer & Waffle (BBW) is a new concept opened in partnership with Mathias Lagger, a longtime manager at Le Parfait Paris and alumni of Vatel International Hospitality Management School. Now in its soft opening phase within a the space adjacent to West Coast Tavern and The Observatory, the eatery offers a Belgian countryside-inspired design with 1,700 square feet of interior dining space boasting 18' ceilings and an outdoor patio on University Avenue overlooking the North Park sign. The restaurant presents a menu of fresh-baked, beer-batter waffle sandwiches, waffle ice cream concoctions, Belgian fries, waffle avocado toast, and more, as well as a list of Belgian beers and wines.

Belgian Beer & Waffle is currently operating under limited hours at 2899 University Avenue in San Diego's North Park. The eatery will fully open when it receives its beer and wine license, with a grand opening scheduled for September 18.
