Francisco Izawa, owner of a few restaurants in South Orange County including Chile Fresco and Maison de Pho, was searching for his next restaurant venture. With his childhood upbringing in Europe and Japan, he was introduced to many different food cultures. While in France, Gaufres a la Flamande are a specialty just like crepes. After recipe development, a waffle recipe was conceived, but not too sweet so it would work equally well in both savory and sweet applications. Wafflette Café http://www.wafflette.com/
opened on December 8, 2013 with tasty waffle sandwiches and sweet treats. Utilizing his Japanese heritage, the waffle is very light. It reminds me of my childhood with very light breads and desserts from the Japanese market. The menu is a fusion of American flavors with European and Asian influences and cooking techniques. Francisco and his staff are always super friendly and can help you with any questions you might have about the menu.
Organic Flavored and Sweetened Iced Teas come in flavors like strawberry, mango, guava, and mixed berries. We tried the Guava Iced Tea. Admittedly, I’m not a big tea drinker, but the tea was sweet and had a light, refreshing flavor. The guava was a nice blend and an excellent pick-me-up on a warm day.
