For the past year I’ve been constantly missing the hot crispy waffles topped with cream, fruits, ice cream and a swirl of sauce that I had been so accustomed to while living in Korea. After hearing that Cafe Rhythm would be the closest thing I could get in Auckland to satisfy my cravings I made a beeline to Parnell straight away. We ordered the famous Original Waffles ($15) and Manuka Honey Bread ($8) along with Chips and aioli ($8). For drinks we had a Belgian Hot Chocolate ($4.50) and an Ice Chocolate ($6). You can imagine we quickly went into a sugar coma. The desserts would also have gone well with a hot cup of tea or the freshly squeezed grape juice. There’s also a $10 daily lunch menu with lots of options to choose from. So if you’re nearby Parnell, or wanting to indulge in some sweetness this would be a great little spot.
Love the little touches to the cutlery and presentation.
Original waffles – was a bit of a disappointment. Texture wasn’t too great and was a bit too sweet.
Manuka Honey Bread – delicious. It was crunchy and not overly sweet. I enjoyed the almond flakes sprinkled on top. Cafe Rhythm.
