Open late.  Waffles made in house (get the platter). Origins & 49th (at least when we were there). Tea. Siphon. Synesso.

    NICE!!!! I wanna go!

    Mmm. Those waffles look wonderful, but I’ve never managed to enjoy whipped cream with coffee. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I tried it with gross, sugar added dairyland aerosol cream. I do not recommend it.

    Yumm… I really really want to go here now! You guys are starting to make me jealous!!!

    Wow. Espresso and WAFFLES?! Done and done. I’m marking this on the list of things to do when I finally get to visit Vancouver. Do they have some sort of website or menu? I looked and cannot seem to find anything, perhaps it’s too new to have that available online…

    Either way, this looks amazing and I hope one day I’ll get to experience the joys of eating a chocolate waffle while sipping a cappuccino!

    soooo, kinda cashing in on wicked cafe’s espresso/waffles schtick?

    are they entrepreneurial coffee geeks or just entrepreneuers?

  9. John Giannakos says:


    Michi’s waffles are entirely hand-made on-site offering a variety of different types.

    Wicked buys from a local supplier offering one type of waffle. Never in my talks with Wicked’s senior employees have they mentioned waffles being a major element of their business, nor does its presence in the store reflect such an idea, so I’m not entirely sure what you’re referring to in regards to “espresso/waffles” schtick.

    “are they entrepreneurial coffee geeks or just entrepreneuers?”
    It’s obvious what you’re implying here, and I think after a visit to Michi, you”ll see Michael is as passionate as anybody when it comes to both business and coffee.

    All I ever read about wicked’s waffle deal was that it was originally going to have a big waffle focus (or that was my misinterpretation? likely). Entering the cafe you realize that it isn’t really a waffle place…. my bad.

    from what I have since heard of michi they sound totally legit (i usually err on suspicion, yeah, not a charming trait)….can’t wait to check them out though
