Cafe Hue – Quaint Dessert Stop
Thank goodness Cafe Hue came and took over that other froyo place.
Cafe Hue is next to the Nijiya market and is a nice little dessert cafe. It serves coffee, tea, milk teas, and snacks. What you really come here for is their snacks: waffles and crepes!
Although you will see froyo machines as you enter, I urge you to step past them and head to the counter. From there, you will see displays and pictures of the possibilities: freshly made waffles and crepes!
I was initially worried that they were buying pre-made waffles and crepes. However, my worries soon disappeared when I saw the batter for the crepe and the tray of dough to make the waffles.
My friend, her little brother, and I ordered the following (respectively):
– Red bean crepe with green tea gelato
– Nutella and banana crepe
– Dark chocolate dipped waffle w/ vanilla bean gelato
I tried my friend’s red bean crepe and it was good. However, I think I am still partial to my favorite crepe combo (nutella, banana, and coco).
What really rocked my world was my chocolate dipped waffle. The waffle was nice and soft, not quite like the Belgium waffles that I’ve had, but still delicious. Since it was freshly dipped, the chocolate was still soft and melted in my mouth. Once the chocolate harden, it added a nice crunch to the bite. And the gelato was a very nice complement to it ($1.50 extra).
All of our desserts came out to be about $5-7 each. I would definitely add this to my quick, cheap dessert stop.
