Wanda's Waffles is everywhere, if for some reason you can't see it? you will def smell it. I was excited to see these everywhere when I first arrived in Toronto because I am a sucker for fresh waffles with icecream.
After lunch at Salad King (Check out my review here), I decided to head to Wanda's Waffle for some dessert since I was already in the area. When I first walked in, I found the store to be very cluttered with things going on everywhere.
There weren't much interior going on, plus I could see flies everywhere (figures when they serve so much sweet stuff and the smell doesn't help either). The cashier was very friendly and she patiently waited as my sister and I were trying to figure out the menu deciding on what to order. They make waffles and crepes the moment you order them so it will take some time but at least you know they are fresh.
Ordered: Ice Cream Crepe 2.5/5
*Crepe with chocolate inside and served with Vanilla icecream for $6.49
*Crepe was a little too doughey but it was ok with the icecream
*Good crepe should be light and chewy, this was too heavy and felt like thin pancakes
Ordered: Original Waffles with Whipped cream and strawberries 2/5
*Waffles with icecream for $6.49
*Waffle was again, very doughy, rich and heavy
*Texture of the waffle was almost like pound cake with lots of butter and cream
*Served with caramel, lots and lots of whipped cream and strawberries
*So many good things going on, waffles, whipped cream, chocolate and ice cream...but it just isn't good.
*Felt like i was eating a giant sweet dough with whipped cream and vanilla icecream
To be honest, I was actually warned by fellow food bloggers about this place how their waffles are a little too rich and heavy. I took note of it, but still wanted to try it anyways. Well, they were right, basically, afterwards I felt sick as if I drank a bottle of liquid syrup and a ball of dough....and that's not a good thing :(
Summary: Despite the sweet scent that drew me to this place, I was disappointed with the quality of waffles/crepes served and I won't be going back.
