Choose from such toppings as Roasted Apple Banana Tiramisu, Fresh Berries with Chambord & Mint, Peach Melba, Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter, even fresh honeycomb, not to mention several ice creams.

Chef Wayne Hirabayahi won't be serving this pineapple-shaped waffle, but putting it together got him in the spirit for National Waffle Day next Sunday.
