Waffle-era Tea Room Review

The only tearoom in Puerto Rico is hugely popular, and it recently relocated to a larger space where they now take reservations, making locals very happy. You can choose from nearly 30 loose teas, including white and fruity blends as well as black. The carefully crafted cocktail menu is a nice addition to the new space. But you'll probably be even more curious about the coffee setup, which looks like a mad-science experiment. It's a siphon fire-brewing system, a painstaking process popular in Japan. The menu consists of house-made sweet or savory waffles—or smaller "wafflitos," and a revamped tapas menu thats includes the signature ham hugged dates. These savory delicacies are stuffed with gorgonzola and cherry tomatoes, wrapped in fire-torched, brandy infused prosciutto. You might also choose a "waffle-izza" with fresh tomato sauce and blowtorch-melted mozzarella. We're still thinking of the decadent crème brûlée wafflito. At the time of this writing, the plan is to keep open the original location at 103 Calle Tetuan.
