Well, I do love waffles

Growing up I loved waffles. Primarily because of how infrequently we got them, and partially because I actually enjoyed them.

I usually got them when we would go to buffet brunches with family, and I would inevitably load them up with whipped cream, chocolate, and strawberries and proceed to feel ill after. I was a little glutton.

As I aged, I realized that I didn’t actually like waffles very much. They were usually too large, often too dry, and the toppings were the only good part (and I don’t particularly like whipped cream and fake strawberry sauce).

However, all of this changed when I visited Belgium in 2009 and had my very first fresh, Belgian wafel.

Since then, I have been on a mission to discover an equally as good wafel. Wannawafel in Victoria is the closest I’ve come.

Wannawafel on Urbanspoon┬áIt is by no means as good as a true Belgian wafel, but when you get a fresh one, it’s close. Very close.

There is a great selection of toppings to choose from, and the staff is generally very friendly. I’d definitely recommend a visit.

    It is of course made in Canada but with the real recipes, love and passion, and Belgians are giving us the thumbs up. The way you say it is in my opinion a bit harsh.
    Further down on the other hand you say “very close”.

    Thanks for visiting, I am sure we are the closest you can get to a Real Belgian wafel in Canada.
