20th December 2012.
The meal didn’t feel complete without a dessert. After wandering around a bit, we stumbled upon Honeybee, tucked away in one corner in Kawaramachi. The small little café is located on the second storey of a building. Inside, it was clean, contemporary and bright, a contrast to its exterior.
The café serves a selection of light bites, meals and a variety of sweets, particularly waffles. We had one of their classics which is a Waffle with Brownie and Banana (530 JPY). It is quite a pleaser for chocolate fans, the combination of chocolate and banana never fails anyway. The brownie bits could have been more moist I thought.
We also had the Yuzu Chocolate and No-baked Cheesecake Waffle (640 JPY) as we were drawn to the “yuzu” which is actually caramelized slices of yuzu. A rather normal waffle actually but the chocolate sauce seemed to work magic on the waffles, nothing beats decadent, sweet chocolate sauce on hot waffles on a cold winter night.
Lastly, we had the Apple Waffle with Caramel Sauce (640 JPY), this turned out to be the best among the three waffles. Think of it as a waffle version of a good apple flan with vanilla ice cream…yummy. In general, we enjoyed our waffles here. The batter is a tad dry but hot waffles on a cold weather, I am gratified.
