‘The Best Things That Anyone Could Ever Taste’: Waffle Cabin Coming To Pine Street 

Corey Londoner had no idea when she started looking one year ago for a place to open a hot Belgian sugar waffle shop that a dream location awaited just one town away, on Pine Street in New Canaan. The Ridgefield resident had already owned one successful franchise business (a cycling studio) and, after tasting Waffle Cabin’s Liege waffles with pearl sugar on ski trips with her young family, she decided to open one herself. Two months ago, the day after a prospective location in Ridgefield fell through, Londoner heard about the available space at Pine Street Concessions in New Canaan. 

She knew immediately it was the right spot. 

“I can’t be more excited,” the mom of two told NewCanaanite.com. “It really just fell into place so perfectly. It seemed to be meant to be.”

In New Canaan, Londoner also has a leg up in that locals for the past several years have tasted Waffle Cabin waffles during the Holiday Stroll, at a pop-up space in front of the Playhouse.

Did You Hear … ?

TV’s original home improvement show has a webcam on the God’s Acre Greek Revival that made headlines this week when town officials voiced support for a sensitive restoration and rebuilding project. The antique at 4 Main St. is the 2019 “Idea House” for “This Old House” and will track developments there. ***

The peacock seen wandering around Wahackme Road on Monday afternoon is back home, according to police. The exotic bird’s Ponus Ridge owner saw an article about it, and the peacock was located and returned to its pen with three others.


Police: Former Caregiver in New Canaan Home Faces Dozens of Credit Card-Related Offenses

Police on Thursday arrested a 25-year-old Georgia woman by warrant in connection with credit card-related offenses committed while she worked as a caregiver in New Canaan four years ago. The woman at about 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 13 turned herself in on paperless rearrest warrant issued for crimes that had been committed in New Canaan in 2014 while the woman worked as a caregiver here, according to a police report. According to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, she had pleaded not guilty in July 2016 to 31 counts of illegal use of a credit card as well as one count each of third-degree forgery, third-degree larceny, a felony offense, and credit card theft. It wasn’t clear how much she’s accused of stealing.
