Where has the year gone? Are we seriously about to step into June (and winter)? We can’t believe we’re already halfway through 2018. It’s crazy how time flies when you’re having fun, right? So, now that we have had our trial run for 2018 and warmed up properly, we need to make the most of this year with the time that we have left! And trust us, this year is only going to get better!

We don’t know about you, but the cold has made us extra munchy lately.

So, if you’re craving some syrupy, waffley goodness (like us), make sure you suss out these waffle hotspots in the city.
