All-Day Breakfast

On October 6 at 10:31 am, history was made: McDonalds premiered All-Day Breakfast, offering hashbrowns, hotcakes and more around the clock. While this victory is being celebrated internationally, many have overlooked our local Arizona success story of breakfast "after hours." 

Waffle Love (which began as a food truck) welcomed community for a record-setting 13-hour breakfast at their newly-opened restaurant location in Gilbert, Arizona. Now, from Monday through Saturday, you can enjoy specialty Belgian Liege waffles throughout the day. 

I made a visit to Waffle Love during an unnaturally overcast day in Phoenix, and chanced upon Sunny, the owner, who so warmly welcomed me and the company of my camera for a quick photo shoot and tasting session. First, I ordered Cinnabliss, a cinnamon sugar waffle with a scoop of vanilla ice cream (rolled in a corn flake mixture), topped with caramel cream and a raspberry on top. Second, I ordered Strawberries and Cream.

Waffle Love made for an incredible food shoot. The Cinnabliss, though nearly monochromatic, presented various textures that captured light and glistened; ruby details added character to the classic breakfast staple.
