While I’ve always been more of a pancake person, a good waffle can be pretty special too. One of our wedding gifts was a waffle maker, which we’ve used many, many times (thanks again, Mike & Maria!), and Adam has gotten quite adept at making the perfect waffle. We like ours nice and crispy on the outside, yet still soft and doughy in the middle. And hot. The waffles HAVE to be hot.
Anyway, about the Waffle Cafe. There’s another location on the other side of town, but one recently opened up in the NW area. The restaurant is a casual, order at the counter place. It isn’t very large, and the menu consists of, well, waffles. All different kinds, with all different toppings, used as a sandwich, served with multiple different items (chicken and waffles coming soon!), etc.
We went simple. I ordered the oat waffles (a single order) with mango, and Adam the regular waffles with blueberries. No whipped cream for either of us, thank you very much. I was a bit surprised that the fruit toppings were just chopped fresh fruit, and not a compote. Although sometimes fruit compotes can be overly syrupy sweet, I found the chopped fruit, while healthier, to be a bit plain.
The waffles were good, but not really any better than what we can make at home for a fraction of the cost, and not as crisp, although you can probably request them to cook it a bit longer.
I think the concept is cute, and we’ll see how it does in our area. With a lack of breakfast spots, I’m betting they’ll do okay.
