The menu is chalk full of creative selections which include but isn't limited to chocolate, bacon, seasonal fruits, berries, custard and whatever other tasty treats the chef can get a hold of. These waffles are then transformed into cooked squares of deliciousness.
I had two seasonal waffles which were the Summer Waves-piled with peaches and lemon pana cotta and more goodness and the Berry Bliss which was a mound of various berries and more creams and goodness. The Blackberry Basil lemonade was sweet and quite tasty. I had the nerve to request syrup and the server told me that I wouldn't need it, she was right. There were so many flavors to take in and more than enough juice if you will, from the berries and creams that the syrup would have gotten in the way.
If my stomach was bigger and I didn't have to walk to take in more sights, I would have ordered at least one more waffle just to taste yet another yummy combination. The wait staff was friendly and I'd encourage anyone to make sure this breakfast spot is on your list of dining places while visiting Portland.
