I stepped in just for a hot cup of coffee and to get out of the rain. Wow was I surprised!!! I caught sight of a waffle completo and couldn't resist ordering it. I overheard how awesome the salchicha polaca is and couldn't resist ordering that too. The prices were so reasonable, why not? Turns out the waffle was the best I ever had. Light, crunchy with crispy edges and mildly sweetened by a little powdered sugar and natural fruit. The polish sausage just topped it off. Well two days later I was back. I had to do the breakfast again, american style. Waffle with fried egg and sausage on top. Amazing!! This time I took a pound of the polish home made sausage to go. My wife and I couldn't be happier. The waffles are authentically Belgium and the sausage is uniquely hand made. I can't say enough about the owner and the family running the business. Great conversations. So to sum it up...good food, good prices, good ambiance and good people.

This place is surprisingly amazing. The waffles are perfect everytime and the service is friendly and efficient. The location couldnt be better if you are walking along the river or are checking out Parque de la Madre, or the stairs that lead from Calle Larga/Hermano Miguel down to the the river. Try the waffle with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup. Prices are reasonable. Great for kids too. Cannot say enough good things about this place.

Tough the Belgian guy who started the place returned to Bruges, the new owner and his family are keeping up with the good job. The waffle with a dark fruity dressing was absolutely delicious, and , - take it from a real Belgian, - made according to the art.

Yipppeee! Now I can munch on delicately baked Belgium waffles even closer to my home in El Centro. They're now situated within the courtyard next to the CIDAP museum, along the river on 3 de Noviembre just west of the escalera at the base of Calle Hermano Miguel.

Presently their opening hours are Thursday - Sunday 10 am to 5:30 pm.

Yesterday I had a most deeeelish waffle (still warm!) topped with a scoop of chocolate ice cream (just $2) - YUMMMM!
