First there was the cronut, now meet the waffogato

First there was the cronut, now meet the waffogato

Meet the “waffogato”, Dominique Ansel’s next bakery buzz item.

Not one to sit idly for too long, the French-hailing New York-based pastry chef is at it again. The famous cronut creator recently debuted the cult-amassing milk and cookies at SXSW and this time, he’s taken on the beloved waffle.

As the name suggests, the waffogato is an affogato-inspired dessert comprised of a waffle made from vanilla ice-cream, with Belgian waffle bits throughout it (so, not really a waffle at all), doused in a hot maple syrup espresso.

“It’s a little like a milkshake at the end,” Ansel told the Wall Street Journal.


The breakfast-themed treat will be making its delicious debut at a hunger relief fundraiser in New York City this week.

Available at Ansel’s eponymous Soho bakery from May 9, we’re sure the waffogato will have the same cronut-sized effect on locals and tourists; if its predecessors are anything to go by, New York’s underground food tourism market is about to boom once more!
