A few weeks ago I went with my partner and some of her colleagues to this gorgeous tea room located in Old San Juan in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
In this post I want to walk you through the experience I had from start to end. I hope you enjoy the journey!
It was around 9:30 am so the illumination was optimal for a gorgeous photo shoot. The decoration is very eclectic and with special attention to detail.
They are a tea room so their tea selection was huge and as their name suggests so was their waffle topping selection, varying from sweet to savory. As soon as we got there we ordered some drinks to quench the thirst. We ordered a cup of coffee and a lemon juice. The lemon juice was super yummy, it was freshly squeezed from local lemons.

|I love places that serve their food in random utensils instead of a specific set of tableware.|
But I need to say it, after the drinks everything went downhill. We ordered our food then relaxed and had fun... for about an hour... until they started serving our food. We wanted to sample a few toppings so most of us ordered different toppings to share.
|Wafflito with pizza-ish topping.|
|Waffle topped with Manchego cheese and prosciutto.|
|Waffle topped with wild berries and maple syrup.|
|Waffle topped with pesto chicken breast, mozarella cheese and cherry tomatoes.|
The food looked gorgeous but it was cold and tasted so-so. So we ordered some sweet waffles for dessert to sweeten our morning.

|Wafflito with Nutella, vanilla ice cream and pecans.|
|AND the king of the morning! Crème brûlée wafflito.|
|It was heaven. <3|
I have to admit it, the only one waffle I enjoyed from all the dishes I sampled, sweet and savory was the crème brûlée wafflito. The other toppings were pretty and interesting but not impressive in the flavor and temperature area.We also had to wait over an hour for our food and our orders got mixed up BUT our waitress who happened to be the manager of the place understood our situation and gave us a juicy discount in our bill without telling us, but we noticed ;). They also had some kind of glitch going on with their bathrooms and they were sharing bathrooms with another restaurant.
In conclusion, I'd only be back if I was dangerously craving a crème brûlée wafflito and had a lot of time to spare.
After we left from the Waffle-Era we walked back to our cars through the pretty and antique streets of Old San Juan. I really love it there! :D
