For a cozy close-up view of the skating rink, enjoy gourmet sandwiches and sweet bakery treats in the glass-enclosed cube at Bread & Water Co., the counter-serve cafe adjacent to the skating rink. Here you can try an ingenious creation called a superwaffle: a waffle stuffed with delicious ingredients. Try it with red peppers, feta and spinach, or kielbasa, spinach and egg. In a breakfast mood? Enjoy the mixed berry version or the bacon, cheddar and egg superwaffle, served all day.
Bread & Water Co. founder Markos Panas said the superwaffle came from a desire to let visitors observe creation of a made-to-order food in the café’s small open-kitchen space, and it has become a beloved signature item since the restaurant opened in early 2018.
