Batter Up on Liberty
Zingerman's Coffee Company roasts a signature Wafel Shop blend, which is smooth and easy on the palate, if not particularly distinctive. The canister labeled "cream" pours Calder Dairy whole milk. Lots of espresso drinks, great teas, and juices are on hand to "pair" with your dessert (or breakfast, lunch, brunch, snack, or maybe even dinner).
For me, the simpler formula made the Wafel Shop an easier place to visit and relax at. Once or twice it reminded me of a dorm eatery, maybe because the evening clientele seemed pretty young. It's another interesting niche venture hoping to hit the sweet spot on Liberty.
