This branch is famous for half priced waffle on Tuesday~ Should you come on Tuesday, especially in the evening, prepared to wait for quite some time. Would recommend to come in the afternoon or so. Note, only the waffle is half priced, not inclusive of the toppings and all
Food wise, the waffle is as per those big fluffy waffle and they tasted quite ok. Would recommend those with ice cream as toppings. The icecream tasted very different from normal icecream due to a strong milky taste which is quite pleasant.
Service wise, you will need to order your food at the counter yourself though they will deliver it to your table.
Price wise, it is not particularly cheap for a waffle with topping and could cost close to $8 - $10 for 1.
I went there on a particular tuesday as it is a 1/2 price waffle day.
There was usually little chance to enjoy the waffle promotion as Tuesday is rather an inconvenient day.
However, an advantage is that the place is less crowded and since I went in the night, the waffles arrived freshly in only 10 mins.
The regular waffle at half-price costs $3 and an additional topping of ice-cream was $2.50. Waffle syrup and fresh cream are included.
However, the tables dotted around the corner are minimal and one could only think in horror at the lunch time crowd!
The half price deal is quite worth it if you regard the premium taste of the waffles and ice cream. Definately a treat to savour!
1/2 Price Tuesday! So 1/2 the menu and service too?
Felt like having waffles yesterday so I met my girlfriend for dinner at Gelare. The last time I went, the mushroom cream pasta was pretty shiok. But yesterday our experience was in fact, very bad.
This outlet at Hougang Mall is pretty small and getting a table for 4 wasn't easy. After 20mins of waiting outside, finally we got our table. They've now improved on their menu and there were many choices that looks quite good. Since we were there for the waffles and pasta, we didn't get distracted. We wrote our orders on the order sheet provided at every table and went to the cashier to place our order.
While waiting in the queue, I realised that the ice cream choice we wanted wasn't available. And thus I tried to remember whatever that's there and walked back to the table to check with my friends. By then, I've already forgotten 80% of the choices available. Had to walk all the way back to check again and then back to the table to change our orders. Statisfied with our choice of ice cream for our waffles, we got back to the queue and when its our turn, the cashier told us that they had run out of mushroom cream pasta!!! (They could have indicated somewhere or inform us when they cleared the table right?) My friend had to walk back to our table and check what we want to change our pasta to, and then we changed our order AGAIN and joined the queue AGAIN!
We ended walking back and forth for about 5 times before we placed our orders with the cashier!
Our pasta was served first and one look at it I lost my appetite. We ordered tomato seafood pasta, the pasta looked pathetic with the little amount of sauce that only managed to cover 1/3 of the pasta for mine and 1/2 of the pasta for my friends'. We were too hungry to complain and so we just went ahead with what was given.
After our pasta, we stayed to chat while waiting for the waffles which was finally served after more than 30 mins! We did indicate to serve our waffles later, aka after we're done with our pasta, but not till that late.
Very disappointed about yesterday's experience. Guess I'll just forget about the pasta and just go for their waffles the next time.
