|A Belgian waffle topped with strawberries, Nutella drizzle, and a scoop of chocolate gelato|
The first time I went to Sweet Berry, I sprang for the Belgian waffle topped with strawberries and Nutella. My dining companion, who opted for a comparably modest desert of gelato in a cup, had major food envy. The second time, we both bested the already-magical combination by adding a scoop of gelato to our Nutella-topped Belgian waffles. Needless to say, we walked out smiling and skipping.
Another popular combination is a crepe -- which can be filled with any combination of fruit, Nutella, or whipped cream -- swaddling a scoop of gelato.
It's unusual for a business establishment that serves such varied offerings to execute each one so excellently, but Sweet Berry does. And it's not just the waffles that shine: the tiramisu gelato, for example, tastes, amazingly, like its eponymous dessert. The frozen yogurt -- of which there is a choice of more than 10 different flavors daily -- is solid as well.
This definitely is a family-friendly place located across the street from Woodson High School, so expect to hear many a high-school girl gossiping, and tiny tots philosophizing with each other and their parents at nearby tables.
