I was meeting up with someone in Hollywood and was looking for a diner type establishment to have a late breakfast/early lunch kinda meal. Waffleworks in Hollywood fit the bill nicely so I got there a little bit early and ordered a coffee while I waited. It was a classic greasy spoon cup of coffee that was enhanced by (needed) all the half & half and sugar I added. I can’t resist Patty Melts and with one on the menu I felt obligated to try it out. Since I was at Waffleworks I also felt it necessary to order some waffles. My meal was now set, a Patty Melt with a Belgian Waffle chaser.
The Patty Melt had all the necessary items to be spectacular including a “Freshly made 7.25 oz. burger” according to their menu. The grilled/sauteed onions were there and a slice of Swiss cheese tried to work their magic on me but just managed to create the “expected” Patty Melt flavors without having any amazing going on. The Patty Melt was just a solid standard affair. I also took issue with the Patty Melt being listed under “Sandwiches” when there’s a “Hamburgers” portion of the menu. But, hey that’s me…
The Belgian Waffle acted as the dessert portion of my meal. This dude was so good, moist on the inside and buttery tasting that I couldn’t let go of it. I filled up some of the holes with regular maple syrup and it was about as perfect of a waffle that you could hope to have. There were plenty of topping options but classic aka plain was where it’s at if you’re wondering my thoughts. The Waffle worked for me but the Patty Melt was just going through the motions.
