“Arguably the best waffles in town”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Craving waffles this weekend and not wanting to brave the line up at Cafe Medina, we decided to try Nero and are glad we did. Serving two trypes of waffles, the classic Belgian (Brussles) and the Liege waffles made either fresh to order or fresh that morning, respectively, allows those with either a savoury- or sweet-tooth to enjoy their favourite. She had a deluxe, a savoury breakfast of prosciutto, asperagus, and chopped egg on a Brussles, whereas I attempted to overload on sugar with a sampling of both a Brussles topped with caramel and Liege topped with creme. All was prepared fresh and all was good! As for the atmosphere, it was small to the point of being cramped but quite and relaxing, so a welcome relief not only from the aforementioned lineups but also from the noise. Certainly my new favourite waffle spot of savoury a close second for sweet. Definitely worth checking out and highly recommended!

“Didn't have enough”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I was surprised by how light our waffles turned out (we didn't order the heavier Liege though) with the necessary crisp on the outside - even with whipped cream and melted dark chocolate sauce, every bite was melt-in-your-mouth! Will return again.

It's a small place though so be prepared to wait for a table and your waffles.

“A happy end just like in the Nero comics”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I would normally not try something "Belgian" abroad. Why travel to order the same as you can have at home?! Well, we did this time and we have no regrets at all! This place is well located on Robson Street and the perfect spot for breakfast (or brunch), afternoon snack or even dessert. The two young owners serve the real Belgian stuff and it really tasted as good as they look/smell. Delicious waffles, made with love and expertise for a reasonable price, served with a smile. You just have to try it out!

“Perfect Little Spot for Breakfast, or Dessert Any Time”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

This little gem HAD to be my first review following a Labor Day trip to Vancouver. This little place dwarfs the neighboring fast food joint in the scent department! We smelled the cooking waffles before we ever saw the place! We enjoyed (if I've got the names correct): a savory "Deluxe" crispy, light Belgian waffle topped with prosciutto, chopped egg, herbs and fresh asparagus; and a mixed fruit Liege waffle (slightly more dense than the Belgian, but crispy with what I think is a light, caramelized layer of sugar on the outside). Both were delicious & beautifully presented -- but the savory waffle was the biggest, best surprise! They have a couple of small tables out in front for when the weather is good (which it was) and another 3-4 tables inside with seating for around 10-15. We sat inside and ate breakfast -- but, with a walk-up window on the sidewalk as well as a counter inside, I think many of their waffle options can be eaten on-the-go. As other reviewers have noted, we were charmed by the couple working there and wish them great, continuing, & well-deserved success! I just wish I could have stayed in Vancouver longer and tried a few more waffles!

“Little piece of heaven!”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We loved their waffles SO much that we had to go back. On the same day!! This husband wife duo runs a fab establisment.This place is tiny but was crowded at 11 in the night. Full marks to them on presentation, taste and quality. We had the belgian waffles with oranges, ice cream and belgiun chocolate..totally YUM. Also had the speculous belgian cookie sauce. Can't say enough good things about this dessert place. Its the kind of sweet that is just right. Not sugary, not overpowering but the right blend of savory and sweet.
What are you waiting for?! Go get yourself, some happiness on a waffle :)
