Review: Waffle Love
When it comes to breakfast or brunch, 90% of the time I go savoury. But sometimes, you gotta try something a little sweet instead.
I hadn't heard much about Waffle Love aside from the fact that they were a place that existed in the Hydrostone. On a recent weekend, we were looking for something a little different, and this place was the winner.
And boy, what a winner.
The inside is teeny tiny but we managed to snag the last open table. And speaking of teeny tiny, the menu is pretty small, too. A few different options for sweet stuff, and a few for the savoury. But when at a waffle shop, there is no question: I went with a sweet option.
I opted for the Fruit Lover—strawberries, bananas, blueberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream. The guy behind the cash/who was our server was delightful. Super friendly and welcoming, not just to us but to everybody who came through the doors when we were there.
We placed our order at the counter and then headed to have a seat...I would be remiss if I didn't mention one thing...the tables/stools situation. I appreciate an intimate venue, but the tables were an awkward height. They weren't quite high enough to warrant the stools, but they were way too high for a standard chair. The result is that you were perched awkwardly, feet dangling but also slouching way down over your food. I dunno, maybe that's a strategy to keep people from camping out since space is so limited? Either way, made for an awkward—and slightly uncomfortable—seating situation.
Anyway. Seating aside. Our food arrived quickly and... woah. SO. MUCH. FRESH. FRUIT. It was piled on there. The waffle itself was delicious. I mean, what more is there to say? It looks delicious. It tasted delicious. I demolished it and have zero regrets. 11/10 would eat again. Waffle LOVE indeed.
