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
*Nothing special

 

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.

What they lacked in quality they have in quantity!

Looking at that reminds of those funnel cakes at Wonderland. I'm getting the sugar shakes just looking at it!

If you don't mind a bit of a walk then there is the 'urban eatery' at the eaton center with another crepe place or there froshbery gelato. Along queen street there are the fresh donuts from Little Nicky's but they close early around 6pm I think. I have to mention the black sesame ice cream at Yuzu sushi! Their sushi is spectacular too!

Which one did you try? I haven't had crepes for SO long! I also miss the yummy Liege style Belgium waffles after looking at your Petit Dejeuner post. :)
