Waffle Monster

A good waffle is something that in recent times has been pretty hard to get your hands on in the city. This makes me super sad because a freshly made waffle is a glorious thing. Worry no more tho people of Glasgow, we have a lovely new addition to Sauchiehall Street who will take care of your sweet doughy cravings.

Located at the west end of Sauchiehall St, not far from pommes frites (Belgian fries & Belgian waffles….can we officially call this area little Belgium?) the shop is nicely decorated with a nice big counter and a small bar with a few high stools if you want to sit in and eat. It’s definitely going for the cute girly vibe with bright pink & purple decor and a big waffle monster decal on the wall.

There is a dizzying array of choices to be made in this sweet treat gem – waffles, ice cream, bubble tea, coffees and the biggest selection of milkshakes I think I’ve ever seen. Once you’ve picked your item then it’s time to pick flavours and additional options. It’s mind-boggling but in the best possible way.

In the end I opted for a freshly made waffle, I was advised at the point of ordering it would take 6 minutes to make – I was more than happy to wait. As you can image the shop smells amazing once the dough starts to cook. As I was waiting I scanned over the ice cream options to decide what flavours I would have with the waffle. There was your staple favourites vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, mint choc chip etc, but there are also a few crazy flavours link blueberry cheesecake, candy floss, bubblegum. and cherry pie & custard??? I decided to go for the ever popular Cookies & Cream and a Toffee Fudge.

Mr G went for an Ice Cream sundae which comes with 3 flavours of ice cream, 2 sauces, sprinkles, cream and freshly cut fruit – yes they cut it up right in front of my eyes which I thought was impressive.

My waffle was delicious it was every so slightly sticky on the outside and inside was gorgeous sweet dough and my ice cream flavours went perfectly with it. The ice cream was nice enough but wasn’t the best ice cream I’ve ever had,  you couldn’t compare it to Equis or Nardinis, but I would happily go back and get a tub of it if I fancied some ice cream.

Brilliant wee shop which I am sure to visit lots in the future.
