Carrara (which is also ridiculously difficult to get the spelling right) Cafe seems hopelessly out of place in an old industrial neighborhood, but they seem to be getting on just fine. Besides the usual café fare offered, their pride seems to be their waffles, which are either very conveniently paired with artisanal gelatos, or offered up as a savory option as part of their all day breakfast.

The waffles themselves are decent, albeit rather run of the mill. A nice fluffy, eggy and slightly savory interior is encased within a mildly crispy exterior that’s nicely browned. However, when a scoop (or three) of gelato is situated on top of the waffle, that’s when the magic happens. Y’all probably know by now what happens when ice cream is fused with waffles, so I’ll just skip that part and announce that Carrara’s gula melaka gelato is enticingly enjoyable. It might be a little too sweet on its own, but when it’s married to the fluffy, fresh and hot waffle, it’s perfect. Just like that soppy Ed Sheeran song.
