- Sun-Thur 7:30am-11pm
- Free Wi-fi
- Late night
- Coffees, smoothies, and teas available
- Offer several kinds of desserts/pastries
- Focuses on the Beligium waffles
- They say they have panini, but I didn't see any in this visit.
- A cozy place to hang around
- Provide magazines
- Limited seatings
- They use 49th parallel coffees (yes, the one in Kitsilano)
- They offer quite a large variety of teas: herbal, white, black, etc.
- They gave a generous amount of rose, so that the tea could be rich in flavour. I normally do not order rose tea, but in this case, the comfy atmosphere urged me to order something...calming.
- At first, I thought it's the fruity cherry tea. Then EU told me it's actually Japanese cherry blossom tea!
- It got darker and more condense than my rose tea; maybe because the cherry flower was smaller than the rose.
- $8.57 for the platter
$2.85 for a waffle
- The waitress kindly put all 3 waffles on the same platter :)
- The platter is served with an ice-cream, whip cream, banana drizzled with chocolate sauce, and a fruit sauce that you can choose either raspberry, blueberry, or strawberry.
- I'm pretty sure that the sauce is home-made. There were actually whole blueberries in the sauce, and it was not sweet at all, which was good! :D
- I wasn't sure about the ice-cream though; however, there were tiny little black dots in the ice-cream. EU explained it was the coat(?) of the vanilla, which proved the ice-cream is also home-made.
- Original Waffle-4/6
- (Sorry for the bad photo) This was the second waffle we ate, and it was already kind of tough.
- The eggy smell was strong, which is good. I'm sure it will be better if it is served warm.
Waffles normally remind me of Damien's Belgian Waffles in Richmond. Then again, EU and I made a comparison between the two. The conclusion? We both think Damien's has better waffles because their batter was chewier :D
Talk about coffee. I like the fact that Michi uses 49th Parallel coffee beans. So next time I can go to Robson Street to have coffees from the 49th Parellel Coffee Roasters Cafe without going to Kitsilano!
