Too Hot In NYC? Then Split!

Waffle Banana Split at Cafeteria

Hey all! Ran into the city today, did some shopping for a few hours and got super hungry. Almost went to Pop Burger, but some scary construction debris fell on the car while we were en route and we took that as a sign haha. Instead, we hopped on the westside highway and ended up in Chelsea. And guess what’s in Chelsea?

Cafeteria! A great eatery that always leaves me wanting more. Why? Well, there are two sides to the Cafeteria coin. On the one hand they serve amazing comfort foods like their mac ‘n’ cheese which is to die for (or at least fight the waiter when he tries to take your plate). You could almost call the place cozy. Then you realize it is so packed with happy tourists and hipster waiters (all of whom add a level of excitement) that you can’t hear yourself making yummy noises. I guess if you think about it, Cafeteria has it all. But don’t take my word for it; check out Cafeteria for yourself. There’s a reason I’ve been there more than once.

This time around, I ordered the waffle banana split up top. She consists of one sturdy Belgian waffle, two caramelized bananas, vanilla and strawberry ice cream, walnuts, chocolate and butterscotch sauce, roasted marshmallows, whipped cream and two cherries on top. She made me smile for a looong time : )

If you get a chance to go, or have been there before. Let me know if you get that warm ‘grandma’s kitchen’ feeling, or that “whoops, should have worn my hipster shades” feeling. Friends of mine have also tried this red velvet cake.
