As far as waffle culture goes in Vancouver, Medina Café is an early pioneer. The Mediterranean-inspired eatery has been attracting crowds with its Liège-style waffles since its debut as Chambar’s cozy sister-neighbour eight years ago.
These days, it occupies a much larger space downtown, but a quick trip to the in-demand brunch spot on literally any given afternoon confirms that the waffle-loving masses just won’t let up. Beautifully rounded, glistening with caramelized sugar, and bursting with a rich-chewy-buttery taste trifecta that only decadent, brioche-based dough can spring, these babies are as close as it gets to dining in a quaint, 18th-century café along the cobblestone streets of Bruges. Sprinkled with a delicate dusting of icing sugar, the waffles’ perfectly deep pockets hold your topping of choice with ease: maple syrup and dark chocolate for the traditionalists, salted caramel for the kids at heart, and flavours like milk-chocolate-lavender and white-chocolate-pistachio-rosewater for those looking to stray outside their after-meal comfort zones.
So go to town on your short-rib fricassee or morning-appropriate paella and, despite declaring minutes beforehand that you can’t eat another bite, rest assured that no one will be casting a judging eye when you decide to order up dessert before noon.
