St Andrews Waffle Co.’s ‘Grab-N-Go’ Extension: Reviewed

Built on the former site of Mr Milano, the Grab-N-Go takeaway can be considered a spiritual successor to the former fry shop. Unlike its predecessor however, the Waffle Co’s newest addition has a plethora of options that include hot dogs, veggie burgers and truffle (yes truffle) pizza. In keeping with their waffle origins, the main dessert offering is the Hong Kong-style ‘Bubble Waffle’. As a Hong Kong resident and consistent consumer of said dessert, I was happy to hear that the recipe for the waffle was created by a Hong Kong-local based in Canada.

Cottage Kitchen: Remodel Review

Over the winter holidays Cottage Kitchen saw a remodel, foregoing their glass case of cakes, salads and sandwiches in favor of a more established look. Not to worry, the cakes are still there and just as tempting as always! The change in Cottage Kitchen, while most evident in the new splashy, colored artwork that hangs on the walls, is perhaps most felt in their menu. Unlike previously when Cottage Kitchen would print their menus daily, it now has a set menu for drinks, brunch (which ends at noon), and a seasonal menu; the menu is now no longer uncertain. Some students appreciate the stability this new menu brings; one student claimed she could now rely on getting her favorite salad on her way home from classes, (the yam, chickpea, arugula, and feta salad). Still, others miss the sense of surprise that a daily menu gives.
