ABOUT The Burgundian
Our founder, Shane, first dreamed of owning his own coffee shop or restaurant during a part-time gig as a barista in high school. But instead of settling down into culinary bliss, the next 15 years took him all over the world during his career as a US Army Officer. For three of those years he was stationed on the border of France and Belgium, where Shane truly learned the "Burgundian" way of life as well as discovering the greatest waffle in the world: the Liege (lee-ehj) waffle.
Words like "gourmand" and "foodie" are more common than "burgundian" these days, but none are as inclusive. It simply means, "One who loves all food and drink, both in quality and quantity, shared among friends."
After bringing his own liege style waffles back to Providence, RI in 2017, Shane is now expanding The Burgundian to include a double-decker food bus! We invite you to experience the Burgundian way of life anytime you spot us at pop-ups and events in Providence, and we look forward to having you along for the ride!
