When I got home, my mom, LC & I went to Waffles for breakfast. It’s this new restaurant that opened up in the South Loop and I’ve heard nothing but great things about it. They serve up traditional as well as non-traditional waffles like red velvet, green tea, eggs benedict waffle, and one with cheddar and chicken. They also have other breakfast options as well. All of their waffles can be made gluten-free BUT they do not have a dedicated waffle iron. I left uncontaminated 🙂
For my waffle, I decided to go with the gluten-free green tea waffle. It was served with lemon ginger chantilly cream and topped with ground pistachio & powdered sugar. No maple syrup needed for this one. It was amazing on its own. This was my first ever gluten-free waffle and I couldn’t taste the difference between this one or a regular waffle. The waffle was cooked to crispy perfection.
LC had a very unusual looking waffle:
The red velvet. It was a red velvet waffle served with strawberry (normally served with cherry) compote and whipped cream cheese. I didn’t get to try his because it was gluten-filled, but he said it was very good.
We will definitely be back to this place. The service was great & the wait wasn’t nearly as long as we were told (40 minutes). The only gripe I had is that they sit you with other people at the table (some of their tables are like this, not all of them). I just don’t like sitting so close to strangers that they can hear our conversation or vice versa. Also, be warned…they charge $1.95 for cream with your coffee.
