A waffle-filled bakery and tea shop has opened in Chinatown. Sweet Waffles & Boba is now in business at 18 Hudson St. in the former Chatime space, specializing in Belgian-style Liège waffles, along with bubble teas.
The waffles are served on thick popsicle sticks with a range of toppings, including a standard option with powdered sugar and another dipped in milk chocolate and sprinkled with crushed almonds. More elaborate flavor combos include strawberry shortcake, matcha crunch, and churro crunch. On the beverage side, Sweet Waffles & Boba serves green tea, taro milk tea, and lemonade blends, including mango and strawberry lychee.
So far, the shop has been operating from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., according to Instagram. Sweet Waffles & Boba plans to celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, April 27, starting at 11 a.m.
The shop adds to the supply of both bubble tea and waffles in the Boston area, though the waffle styles vary around the city, with some Liège-style and some Hong Kong-style egg versions available, not to mention the forthcoming fish-shaped ice cream cones inspired by Japanese taiyaki, cakes typically made from pancake or waffle batter.
