Sweet, Sweet Revenge

You may have heard me talk about how excited I was to try a bakery in New York called Sweet Revenge. I don't remember how I originally heard of the place, but I did. And the rest is history.

Sweet Revenge on Urbanspoon

This bakery established themselves on the concept of cupcake and wine pairings. Two of my favorite things.

But in addition to cupcakes and wine, they serve brunch and lunch among other desserts and pastries. There are several things on the menu that look great, but there was only one thing I wanted for brunch: Red Velvet Waffles.

Just like every other place in NY, the food was a bit overpriced ($11.95 for these two relatively small waffles and a small bowl of fruit), but it was worth the splurge. And, on a vacation where I was eating out for almost every meal, I honestly didn't mind the smaller portions. 

Red velvet waffles taste just as amazing as you would imagine. And the salted caramel syrup made them even more delicious. 

Poor things...Didn't stand a chance.

Greg had the "gigante" breakfast burrito and loved it. We also tried some cupcakes. The Pure (vanilla) was awesome.

Now that I am back home, it's time to get in the swing of things again. I have a lot of baking and cooking to do to make up for my time away from the kitchen. One thing I now want to try: red velvet pancakes! How does THAT sound? I would try doing waffles, but that's hard to do without a waffle iron ;) I can't complain though, my mom and Thom got me a brand new, b-e-a-utiful KitchenAid stand mixer and I can't wait to use it!

  2. You know how I feel about those waffles....TDF!!! Love you so much!
