One of the pleasureable, comfort foods frequently consumed in the Netherlands, especially here in Limburg, is the waffle. These are always the big, Belgian style waffles and usually eaten as a snack or dessert rather than breakfast. Like Dan says, no day with a chocolate filled waffle can be a bad day.
Pinky serves the best waffles in all of Maastricht. Bar None. The waffles themselves are quite sweet and can be purchased with powdered sugar on top. The next step up, and the one I love, is the chocolate-filled waffle with three sticks of chocolate shoved into the still warm waffles fresh insides (pictured). We don’t usually get powdered sugar on top but you can. The ultimate waffle from Pinky is chocolate-filled with powdered sugar and a swirl of soft-serve vanilla ice cream on top. Delicious.
Pinky almost always has a line for both waffles and their soft-serve ice cream, which is ok but not terribly inspired. They also have a candy store with a variety of candies, from chocolate to marshmellow critters on a stick. It is typically open only until 17:00 (5 PM), expect on Thursdays when they stay late with the rest of the stores. They are also closed on Sunday.
