Syrup Desserts is a relatively new dessert shop located in the arts district of downtown LA. After our meal at Wood Spoon, this was a convenient walk for a dessert stop. Known largely for their waffle creations, Syrup also serves a variety of ice creams, crepes, pastries and even grilled cheese.

The waffles are the most well-known item on the menu here. Below see the chocolate banana liege waffle.

The waffle was fairly inconsistent from bite-to-bite. Some bites were crispy, sweet and sugary, some were doughy and bland.  The strawberries were sweet, bananas good, and the ice cream and whipped cream solid. However, the showcased waffle was a little disappointing this time around.

My trip to Syrup Desserts this time was a little underwhelming. On my first trip, I thought the waffle was pretty good, but it didn’t live up to expectations this time around.
