One year ago, on April 26, 2015, Capecci and Judy made the leap from their food truck (Pbon’s Fresh Phood of Philly) to brick and mortar with the opening of Waffles & Wedges. The duo personally renovated and designed the casual take-out eatery and cafe in the Rittenhouse neighborhood formerly occupied by Mexico on the Square.
In honor of a successful first year in business, Waffles & Wedges will celebrate with an afternoon of festivities that will close down South Hicks Street, located directly next to the restaurant. Look for food specials and menu additions inside at the counter, as well as outside at Capecci and Judy’s two food trucks (Pbons Fresh Phood of Philly and Waffles on wheels).
Specials and menu additions will include:
Party Crasher Mini Waffles (Liege waffle topped with vanilla icing and rainbow jimmies) — $1
The Birthday Waffle Sandwich (Liege waffle with Nutella on both sides, Bassetts’ Vanilla Ice Cream, coated in rainbow jimmies) — $8
Surf’n Turf Wedges (Beef steak, covered in Tipsy Cheese made with Philadelphia Brewing’s Kenzinger beer, topped with grilled Maryland crab meat) — $11
Birthday Waffle Chick (Liege waffle, pulled chicken with honey and BBQ, topped with pineapple jalapeno salsa) — $9
Gluten-Free Strawberry Mojito Heat (Strawberries, mint, jalapenos, and infused with rum) — $7
Waffles & Wedges local partners will also be on hand for FREE samplings of beer, coffee and ice cream – including:
Complimentary beer tastings from Broken Goblet Brewing, Neshaminy Creek Beer and Philadelphia Brewing Company
Ice cream scooping from Bassetts’ Ice Cream
Locally roasted and organic coffee from Philly Fair Trade Roasters

On top of food and drink, look for other outdoor fun like live music jams all afternoon from students at University of the Arts, and children’s activities plus adoptables from Saved Me.
