"WE ARE BACK BABY!!!! And it feels SO GOOD!!!!"

The waffle lives again. Lafayette's fledgling mobile food-vending industry was burned last July when the Viva la Waffle truck, not even a week in business in a lot behind the Burger King near the UL campus, when an electrical fire swept through the cab of the van while it was parked in co-owner Colin Cormier's driveway. But the business' Facebook page announced today that Viva la Waffle is back on the street and setting up shop in its off-campus location:
