Take waffles to new heights at Tiabi

When your menu focuses on waffles, you’ve got to nail them. Tiabi—its name is an acronym for its motto, “To Inspire and Be Inspired”—does a fine job of it. Crispy outside and chewy inside, these waffles were only overcooked once on my numerous visits (and that, apparently, while test-driving a new Belgian waffle iron). Those are good odds for a startup.

Tiabi’s signature waffle is the Hashtag, a whimsically shaped play on the breakfast favorite, and the Hashtag breakfast sandwich ($5) layers sausage, egg and cheese between two fluffy waffles. If you’re a traditionalist, thin round and thick Belgian waffles are available.

The shop’s young owners are so passionate about waffles they’ll stick anything between them, creating the West Coast ($6), a chicken club with avocado and a flavorful, soy-based aioli, and the Waffledilla ($5), which folds cheese-smothered chicken into a thin waffle. And then there’s the Breakfast Lolly, a waffle-encased turkey sausage. Yes, meat-stuffed waffles … inspired indeed.

Tiabi Coffee & Waffle Bar 3961 Maryland Parkway, 222-1722. Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
