A Las Vegas local and a Sydney, Australia, ex-pat have been serving Belgian waffles in Denver since 2010, and are now one restaurant closer their dream of bringing their sweet and savory menu to the Strip.
John Power and Rod Dupen, the self-styled namesake Waffle Brothers, are on track to debut their first Las Vegas outpost this summer, moving into suite 106 at the Canyon Plaza retail center, close to the intersection of Sahara Avenue and Buffalo Drive and a new neighbor to First Bistro.
Operating two Denver locations, the casual restaurant specialty is Liège waffles, prepared as a breakfast dish with eggs, fruit and meat, plus chicken and waffles served as sandwiches or with butter and syrup.
Sweet creations are topped with options including marshmallow cream cheese, Nutella, and raspberry cheesecake swirl, plus lemon and blueberry Zingers, and tiramisu combinations, and the “Full Monty,” finished with cinnamon and powdered sugars and whipped cream.
Currently hiring, but yet to announce a potential opening date, Waffle Brothers is expected to be open daily and offer indoor seating.
Back in 2013, chef and co-owner Dupen revealed to Denver’s Westwood magazine, an ultimate dream ambition of expanding to the Strip, surrounded by “fifteen large waffle irons, slot machines everywhere, fried chicken, and booze.”
