Nero Belgian Waffle Bar – The Banella
What exactly is a “banella” you may ask? Part banana, part Nutella and all waffle!
Nero is a tiny little Belgian waffle bar on Robson Street. I stopped by for their Banella on a Liège waffle ($6.95) and added an enormous cup of hot earl grey tea. There’s a bit of seating inside but your best bet is to enjoy your waffle on their patio as you people-watch on Robson.
Is it just me or is Nutella the sexiest food spread around? The Liège waffle was sweet and chewy with the characteristic chunks of sugar pearls. Was it the best waffle I’ve had? I’m not sure about that but the toppings were quite good.
They open for breakfast at 9am on the weekends and there’s a small strip of free parking on nearby Cardero.
