It comes as no surprise that waffles are so internationally loved that they merit two separate holidays each year. Today is International Waffle Day, giving us another chance to celebrate one of our favorite carb-ridden dishes. We’ve compiled a list of the best waffles in New York City so that you can get your fix with plenty of maple syrup.

This past weekend, Cori Sue paid the New York Bitches a visit and we had a lovely brunch at The Dutch amidst a flurry of Bitch biz.

Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. 131 Sullivan St., New York, New York.
