Welcome to our Weekly Food + Dining Guide! This week we feature Hello Waffle Cart, which serves sweet and savory waffles at a drive-thru in Camas, and is a favorite at Farmer’s Markets and events throughout the area.
Waffle plates are growing in popularity and new options are being created to tempt your taste buds. Like the Caprese Waffle, in the cover photo. It’s a savory waffle with fresh mozzarella, pesto aioli, tomato, arugula, balsamic drippings, and makes for a fantastic meal!
“We have turkey sandwiches and people are impressed,” says co-owner, Linda Cameron, who purchased Hello Waffle last October with her husband, Will. “We cook the savory ones with bacon. Most product we have is 100 percent fresh, and the other things like bacon are pre-cooked.”
Hello Waffle recently introduced a ham and cheese waffle, which are both cooked inside the waffle and served with a side of tomato soup. They also just added a chicken waffle. Delicious!
On Saturday, their busiest day of the week, they run two drive-thru’s so you can get your waffle pretty quickly, and if you add a drink it’s just a 5-7 minute wait. You can order up to five waffles at the same time.
And you have 11 waffle plates from which to choose. Their best sellers are the fresh fruit (strawberry), Nutella banana and on savory side, the turkey sandwich and caprese. They also offer gluten free.
It’s all made from scratch.
They are currently at Vancouver Farmer’s Market, and will be back at Camas Farmer’s Market soon. They do school events, and will be at Prune Hill Elementary School, the Ilahee Elementary School carnival, at Grass Valley Elementary, and also at Shahala Middle School on May 15.
“I’ve been in the business for almost 30 years working in restaurants and I always wanted to open a restaurant,” said Cameron. “We got it going. I love food. I love serving customers. When customers see the final product they’re amazed. People get excited to see what we make.”
Hours: Open 7 days from 7 am – 2 pm.
