You would probably only want to come if you’re full and want to wait until you’re hungry again. Certainly not the most pleasant waffle experience. And look what I got for my teapot cover!

Five of us went there and we waited for an more than an hour. There were tables upstairs but they never asked customers to be seated. Such a poor customer service. Food were fine but honestly nothing special at all. Serious, don't waste your time.

We had a really good Brussel waffle here with chocolate sauce. However, there were no signs on where to wait for a seat and we were really confused as such. Service will be slow as it is really busy. Staff were professional though. Worth a...More
