First, there was the cronut. Then, the bruffin. Now, a new Stanton Street cafe wants in on the pastry hybrid action. Croissant/doughnuts and brioche/muffins, make way for the creffle, a mash-up of crepes and waffles that are the namesake dish at a coffee shop now open on the block between Ludlow and Essex.

Creffle Cafe is still in soft-launch mode, so the invention wasn’t actually available to taste yet when we stopped by last week. But co-owner Alan Tak, who has photos, says it’s a combination of three things: a crepe, a waffle and an “eggette,” a spherical pancake that is a popular street food in Hong Kong. He plans to serve both sweet and savory versions at the tiny shop, whose other main offering is coffee brewed from beans roasted on-site, behind the counter. The menu, which is still under construction (as is the restaurant’s website) will also include a “special meatball,” Tak said.

 Update, 9/16: Photographer Vivienne Gucwa of NY Through the Lens gave the creffle a try and sent us a photo (below).
