Nero Belgian Waffle Bar is a tiny shop on Robson Street that serves up Belgian style waffles with special toppings. They make both liège (dense, sweet, and chewy) and brussels (light and crispy) waffles here. There is pretty limited seating and the place is popular, so you may have an issue grabbing a seat.
I came here with Diana from Foodology and Dee from Gastrofork for dessert after our ramen meal because it was just down the street. There was a bit of a customer service issue when we came and long story short, the girl working the counter was a bit rude and abrasive to us. The owner later contacted me and apologized for the service we received, which I appreciated, so all is forgiven.
Diana ordered the rudolf on a brussels waffle. It was topped with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate mousse, and raspberries.
They make the brussels waffles fresh when you order them so they come out crispy and warm. This waffle was really good. How can you go wrong with ice cream, raspberries, and whipped cream?
I ordered the banella on a liege waffle. I am obsessed with liège waffles because I love how chewy and sweet they are. They are like a dessert on their own.
I was trying to avoid ice cream, so this was a lighter option. Even though it is nothing unique, I love bananas and nutella together, so I enjoyed this combination.
Dee had the mocha on a brussels waffle. It was made with vanilla ice cream, dark chocolate drizzle, and espresso infused whipped cream. The espresso infused whipped cream was really good and it had a pure coffee flavour.
Despite the service issue, I would still come back to Nero Belgian Waffle Bar because the waffles were really good. I wouldn’t mind trying more of their flavours and some of their savoury options as well.
Yes, for yummy waffles.
