Waffle smackdown WE CafePosted: April 29, 2011
WE cafe is located on robson st, close to the ramen epicentre of robson and denmen. Its been open since last fall and its still impeciabley clean. The black and white design keeps it looking fresh and modern. I’m not usually impressed by design, but I could stay in this cafe for a long while writing my epic bestselling novel…
As it is a cafe (with free wifi) it is important to note that there is a 3.89 min per person. This is about the same price as a medium cappuccio or a handcrafted drink (anyone know why its called handcrafted? I always feel like its made with more love and free spirits when I say “handcrafted drinks”. Starbucks has brainwashed me) . They also offer a selection of waffles, sandwiches, and dessert items.
I bought a voucher last dec from indulgene living and decided to use it. I came here on a beautiful rare saturday morning for brunch. I decided on waffles.
I have to admit that i have a love affair with waffles. I sing and dance when Iknow i will be eating waffles soon. Most people know and exploit this weakness.
Therefore im going to write a series of waffle reviews of wonderful waffles. This will be reviews on recipes and resturants. I hope to continue this series until the day I stop blogging.
So on to the actual review!
I ordered the waffle sandwich of strawberries and nutella and took a lot of bites of the sesonal fruit troi and here is the smackdown out of 5:
Due to the manufacturing of their waffle maker, it was only crispy on one side. The side that was crispy was good and had a solid crunch.
The fruit selection was good. Ingredients were fresh and the whipping cream was real cream. However they were not original. The waffle sandwich was two pieces of waffles with the toppings in the middle. I was expecting a thinner crisper waffle with a bulging toppings in the middle.
They were market price however the cafe was more on the expensive side.

They were pretty. Especially the fruit trio

Will I return?
Maybe. Theres no novelty but the space was beautiful. This would be a better alternative to starblenzs in the area for a good chat with friends. I might try their desserts.
So here’s to the first review! Are there any restaurants you would recommend? Should I change up my critera? Send me any comments you have!
