Good things come to those who wait.
Even three hours after opening its doors for the first time this Saturday, Boardwalk Waffles and Ice Cream (7326B Manchester Road, Maplewood) had a line wrapped around the building. It's not hard to see why: The irresistible smell of freshly made Belgian waffles was enough to seduce any passerby.The counter-service shop sells two things and two things only: Jersey Shore-style waffles and ice cream. You can order each option solo or, more excitingly, combine them for a waffle sandwich. Sandwiches come in three sizes: Full (two waffles, four scoops), half (one waffle, two scoops) and single (half a waffle, one scoop). Coffee, juice and soft drinks are also available.
