The Not-So-Ordinary-Waffle-House had Not-So-Ordinary-Beginnings
Once upon a time, on a college break, Bontés founder went backpacking through Europe after completing a grueling round of midterms at the University of Colorado. While in Brussels, he discovered one of Belgiums most popular offerings: the sugar waffle or gaufre (pronounced go-frã). No matter where he ventured, he was captivated again and again by the sweet-scented aroma and luscious taste of these expertly prepared, street-vendor treats. Suddenly, he had a vision to make these treats available to the residents in his own city: In that moment, Bonté, which means goodness in French, was born. Since 2003, Bonté has been enchanting the people of Philadelphia with the same sweet experience encountered on the streets of Brussels.
