Karo's Belgian Sweets is a family owned business specializing in baking classical Belgian desserts. We pride ourselves in offering freshly baked waffles and handmade pastries, all prepared with carefully selected ingredients. We strive to bring you the authentic Belgian taste and quality.
When we arrived in Florida, we were happily surprised to see that “waffles” were offered in many places, restaurants, bars, food trucks, and the like, and not just in Florida but throughout the United States. Coming from Belgium, where waffles are one of the many gastronomic icons for which the country is known, the prospect of being able to eat waffles sounded appealing.
But these waffles were served with eggs, chicken, fish, etc… and it took a while to clarify that Belgian Waffles are not breakfast, lunch, or dinner but everything in-between, a sweet and hearty snack or dessert.
It didn’t take us long to look at the possibility of bringing one of our traditions and the Brussels Waffle to the American market under the name “Karo’s Belgian Sweets” and seeing and hearing the positive comments from our customers couldn’t make us happier.
However, we also soon discovered that these waffles, sometimes even called Belgian Waffles, were far from the waffles that were encased in our memories, our nostrils and our taste buds.
In 2013, my husband helped a fellow Belgian setting up a mobile vending operation and actually manned the waffle vending locations for a couple of months at green markets. Long enough to note that the Belgian waffle, actually the “Liege” waffle seemed, at first, to be an intriguing piece of food for those who were used to having waffles for breakfast, lunch or even dinner.
