Awesomeness might be an understatement of what it's been like since The Gaufre Gourmet moved to the downtown 9th and Alder location. Not only do I get to walk by this food cart on my daily commute, but I can eat waffles for lunch, make that liége style waffles.
My latest venture took part in the ABC Waffle ($6.75): arugula, bacon, and camembert with fig sauce. The broiche-esque waffle was strong enough to hold up the toppings while adding a touch of sweetness. The bacon, well, I am not a crazy bacon eater, but this was one of the better bacons I've had in some time. Perfectly thick, with a nice crisp and plenty of melt in your mouth goodness. Add creamy camembert and tangy fig sauce and it's a discothèque in your mouth.
On this occasion, I also ordered an almond milk mocha. A superb mocha: rich, tasting like dark chocolate and espresso and not sugar. I would go out of my way to get coffee here again.
Crazy-delicious weekly flavors are abound, just creep them one way or another to find out.
