Linea Caffe

Pin It Now!
Excellent coffee and waffles are to be had at Linea Caffe.  Probably best to go there while the weather is still nice as they only have outside seating.  Not sure how they will manage when the weather get cold and rainy, which is a bummer because I think these waffles need to be enjoyed fresh.

Waffles are always for satisfying a sweet tooth.  Its a yeasted waffle topped with coconut jam, gianduja and sprinkled with chopped macadamia nuts.  I didn't taste much of the coconut flavor, but I did love the crunch of the macadamia nuts.  The waffle is so light that even though its a large its doesn't feel heavy in your stomach. 

Same goes for all the savory waffles.  Its light texture lets you indulge in a lot more waffles than you think you could (or should).  The smell of the potato waffle mixed with pastrami bits was amazing.  I could smell it cooking while I waited for it outside.  Served with some pickled cabbage and some mustard, it was so delicious.

At first I was a little unsure of salmon roe and creme fraiche as a topping on a buckwheat waffle, but, wow, the little hints of salt and crunch from the cucumbers was so well balanced.  The waffle was so fluffy and airy, it was hard not to like it.
