Further Evidence of Wafels & Dinges on Avenue B

If a 7-Eleven is indeed coming to Avenue A, it isn’t the only poorly kept secret in Alphabet City: Earlier this month, The Local pointed to city records indicating that mobile sweets vendor Wafels & Dinges may be opening its first brick-and-mortar location at 15 Avenue B.

When we Tweeted about it, the Belgian-wafflemaker, which had declined to comment, coyly responded: “The mystery is killing us!”

The company still hasn’t made it official, but last week it posted a photo to its Facebook page showing construction in a dimly lit mystery space, with the caption: “Right now, it’s a mess. But it’s going to be awesome. We hope.”

The scene inside of 15 Avenue B today sure looked similar to the “mess” in the photo. We’ll let you know when it’s official.
