Located at Home Team NS is the second outlet of Milk & Honey Gelato, not to be confused with Milk & Honey, the one that serves frozen yogurt. This is more of a cafe with a family oriented set up. What stands out most is the décor and the wide variety of gelato flavours it offers. The café has a mix of yellow and black furniture which stands out from its white washed walls. It is not possible for one to miss this café tucked in between Saizeriya and Ossia Music. They also have a selection of cake
1. Berry Malt $5.90 Donut waffle and fused balsamic strawberry sorbet and salty malty gelato, strawberry compote and strawberry Tuile (thin baked strawberry biscuit)
The donut waffle was crisp on the outside and fluffy, soft and cake-like on the inside, just the way I like it. The abtter was fragrant with an eggy, buttery-like flavour. It had more of a cakey aroma. The standard of these donut waffles are quite different from any waffle or dont I have tried. The strawberry gelato was smooth, creamy and melt-in your mouth. There was a very nice fragrant from the gelato as well. 2. Half Quaffles with Mao Shan Wang $8.50 One of the starlets of this café is definitely their freshly handmade quaffles (quarter waffles). Crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, the quaffles are accompanied by creamy gelato of your choice which melts in your mouth with each bite!
A full sized quaffle is $5.50, and a half is $3. Gelato scoops are priced at $4.50-$5.50 and $5.50 being for a premium flavour like mao shan wang, for which each bill can only order one scoop of this limited flavour.
The highlight of this was the mao shan wang durian gelato was which was extremely smooth and creamy. The gelato here leaned towards the sweeter side as I have an acquired sweet tooth, this was the flavour for me. The gelato was so addictive, I couldn't bear to waste even a drop of it.
The waffles didn't turn soggy despite the gelato melting atop of it. The waffles had a very crisp and light texture. I could distinctively smell the buttermilk fragrance while they were cooking it on the waffle iron but the aroma disappeared by the time it was served. Maybe the durian gelato aroma overpowered the waffle?
3. Mango Cheese $6.20 Donnut waffle with parmesan cheese, mango compote, passionfruit coullis and passion fruit mango sorbet.
The mango cheese is a combination of sweet and sour tastes, topped with a crispy and flaky biscuit. I loved all the cubes of mangoes surrounding the donut waffle. They were sweet and a great compliment to the slightly sour sorbet. The sorbet though without dairy, still tasted very smooth and creamy. The lingering aroma of the mango flavour really won me over.
4. Mocha $4.80 For caffeine friends, enjoy their finest brewed coffee, a signature blend of coffee beans from Yahava KoffeeWorks'.
I really liked their mocha. It had the right notes of chocolate and coffee. The staff were also very friendly and accomodating to my orders. The coffee itself definitely gave me a much needed energy boost for the night!
5. Strawberry Float $5.90 This is a strawberry sorbet with soda water and strawberry sauce. You had to wait for the sorbet to completely melt before drinking this, otherwise you would just be drink plain soda water. Other than that, it was a nice, fruity and refreshing drink.
Overall : There's no other way to wrap up your day than to hang out at this cosy café with your loved ones while enjoying your favourite gelato and waffles. I really liked their mao shan wan durian gelato and their donut waffle creations!
