My friends and I spotted the newly opened Sugarholic Cafe in Aberdeen on the main floor near the fountain. It’s in that corner where a few other cafes have opened but none have survived. The waitress said that they have been open for almost a month now. The interior looks like a cutesy elegant high tea place and the ambiance seemed promising except that it was pretty quiet when we went around 8:30pm. Well ok I think they were quiet the whole night since I walked by earlier and peeked in…
They have a small dinner menu and also a section of waffles and toast/toast boxes which we decided to indulge in.
A new waffle place opened up where Death by Chocolate used to be on the corner of Fir and Broadway. My friend who was craving waffles suggested IHop and I’m just like no… after some research I found Belgium Place! It’s got the word Belgium in it so they should make good waffles right? They also serve some soups and sandwiches too. The cafe space has a lot of wood furnishing and they also have a shelf with a few French kid’s books. It doesn’t seem too busy so it could be a nice place to chat with some friends.
The waffles are all Liege waffles and cost $3.80 plain. They also have waffles with chocolate and waffles with chocolate and almonds. and they are both $4.75. This was the Waffles with Strawberry and it was one of the special creations on the menu. It was served with 2 scoops of vanilla gelato and strawberry compote with a side of whipped cream. The size of the waffle was pretty big! Price wise it’s a bit cheaper than some other waffles joints coming in at $7.80 but pretty close.
I’ve been to Nero Belgian Waffles once and I was absolutely hooked. It’s been raved about a lot and it did not disappoint when I tried it for the first time this year. However, they are usually quite busy and I am deterred by line ups… hence I was excited to learn about Le Petit Belge and their waffles which looked pretty much the same as Nero’s! =D
When I went in on a late Sunday afternoon, they were really quiet and there were only 2 other customers in the cafe. They had a few croissants and other desserts in a display case.
For the waffles, they have 3 sweet options and 2 savoury options. The price for the Brussels waffle is a bit more than for a liege waffle since the Brussels waffle is bigger? Pricing was reasonable though and on par with Nero.
Say hello to this magnificent waffle!!! This was the Majesty with Bresilienne nuts, ice cream, whipped cream, banana slices and caramel drizzle.
