Waffle Crush Wednesday: Berry Tasty
In celebration of our favorite made-up internet holiday: Waffle Crush Wednesday.
Welcome to Buvette — a small French cafe tucked away from the busy streets in the most charming part of the West Village. On a mission to find the best waffle in New York City, we took our empty stomaches and full hearts to Grove Street bright and early this morning.
When we stepped inside, we were greeted with dark wood, vintage trinkets, and very little space. Even the shortest of breakfast lovers will walk in and feel abnormally tall (just an added benefit if you ask us). Although it’s not spacious, the rustic decor feels warm and welcoming, as does the staff. We sat down and immediately noticed all of the mugs filled with different variations of the classic coffee. And they all looked like they were powered with enough caffeine that could make any insomniac stop yawning. We ordered the waffle, of course. It came a few short minutes later covered with fresh berries. Is there even a waffle under there? The powdered sugar sprinkled on top turned into a sweet syrupy glaze seconds after it was placed in front of us. We cut it in half to cool it down, and 5 minutes later, it was gone. Only downside? The portions were relatively small. We finished our waffle and could’ve easily scarfed down a second. Pro tip: make sure you visit during the week. The wait can be up to an hour on Saturdays and Sundays (especially if you like to sleep in).
Casper’s unofficial waffle rating: 8.4
