Waffee Waffles + Coffee Emporium Revisited

LG Emporium, 287 Lonsdale St Melbourne
Date visited: 31st August 2014

We're back!  I had a craving for something sweet for brunch, not to mention been thinking of those Liege waffles we had at Waffee a few weeks ago.  MerlinFan was keen on trying one of the savoury waffles, so that was how we ended up back at Waffee for round two.

MerlinFan had a Mocha, which had a nice balance of chocolate and coffee.  I remember the first time I came I had the cappuccino, which was a bit milky, so I decided to forgo my usual and try their take on the Magic a.k.a double ristretto topped up with steamed milk.  It was velvety smooth, with a nice lingering finish.  

Mocha $4.50, Magic $3.90
We decided to go for one sweet and one savoury and do swapsies halfway.  MerlinFan chose the Buttermilk Fried Chicken. Two chicken tenders covered with a deliciously crispy, crunchy batter sat atop a hearty helping of creamy ranch-styled slaw.  The fluffy savoury waffle had deep grid pockets - perfect for pouring on the maple syrup >:D
Buttermilk Fried Chicken $17.50

I chose the Chocolate Galore, which again was two Liege waffles with a scattering of balsamic glazed berries and two scoops of indulgent chocolate ice cream.  I was glad the rich chocolate sauce came on the side, because I liked savouring the delicious waffles on their own.  Again, loved the dense, buttery sweet waffles with their glistening crunchy coating.

Chocolate Galore $15.50

Delicious, indulgent sweet as well as savoury waffles.  I enjoyed their Magic a lot, so might have this again next time around.  Staff were also super friendly and enthusiastic.  I'm sure we'll be back - after all, I can resist everything but temptation.
