Rutte's Dutch Waffles originates from the Netherlands and follows a family tradition dating back to the beginning of the last century.

The great-grandfather of founder, Okke Rutte, started delivering dairy goods on a wooden cart in 1912, eventually passing the family business to his son who upgraded the wooden cart with a steel caravan and added homemade stroopwafels to the menu. The Rutte's have been making, eating, and sharing stroopwafeltjes since.

After moving to NYC in 2010, Okke searched high and low for his beloved cookies but found none that came close to the addictingly good real stroopwafels he grew up eating. So after a lot of research, meetings, and tastings, Rutte's Dutch Waffles was born!
