Cafe Wayo (Auburn, AL)
1100 S College St #101, Auburn, AL 36832, T: 334-821-8884
Self-serve frozen yoghurt places are the newest fad in the restaurant business. Everywhere wannabe entrepreneurs open some fresh looking shops with the hope to have the new franchise model. Cafe Wayo isn't much different, except that it adds Belgian waffles and cereal bowls to the equation. Moreover, the personnel (owner?) is very enthusiastic and helpful.
I order a "sugar waffle" ($1.25), which is freshly made on the griddle and comes fairly close to a real Liege waffle. It has an authentic consistency and includes sugar nuggets, but the first taste is a bit off. There is a broad range of choices of froyo, which are all very fresh, while the toppings are small diced. We get two full cups for $15 in total. The mango is very good, while the pink lemonade is perfect, very refreshing. The cheesecake is not too sweet, but unfortunately the original tart is not very tarty either.
Cafe Wayo is one of the best froyo places I have visited in the past year... and I have visited a few. Moreover, on top of the great froyo, this place offers very good Belgian waffles. Can't go wrong here!
