They made delicious looking waffles - with giant scoops of ice cream, but we just had coffee to go for walking around the Saturday market. Nice family run business...

Called at a quiet time. Mid Monday morning. Only a handful of people about. Got served by a miserable youth. No passion for his work. Not a pleasant greeting....nothing. the waffle arrived. Obviously pre-made. Still frozen (literally) in the middle. Sauce sloshed over the top....More

Very nice waffles, batter was especially light and fluffy, but unfriendly service, and nothing to write home about! Served on paper plates with plastic forks. Big old waffles though, worth a visit if you're close by but I wouldn't bother coming out of your way.

If you are wanting a cold sweet hit...look no further. Delicious. The waffles are decent in size with two big scoops of ice cream. Is a meal for one but is also a good size to share between two.

Pretty hard to find good breakfast places on Raro - this place in the Market area is one of them with good strong coffee.

Don't think so, it's a very simple shack kind of operation, with 5 kinds of waffles and that's it.
