The Peachtree Cafe in Lawrenceville is known for its “Picture Waffle,” called that because it’s made exactly as the picture on the menu shows. It’s a homemade Belgian waffle covered with blueberries, melon, strawberries, bananas and grapes — sometimes kiwi and pineapple when in season — topped with whipped cream and drizzled with a strawberry or blueberry syrup.
