Super Bubble Waffle- Grand Central Birmingham

After we stuffed our face with burger and fries, we still had a little room for a dessert of some description. Usually I am the indecisive one, but Stephen couldn’t decide what he wanted…so we paced around Grand Central twice searching for “the chosen one”! I was fixed on the fact that I wanted a waffle, so for me it was just which place sold the best waffles. We were in the queue of one place, but the waffles were sitting out on the counter which immediately put me off! I wanted a fresh waffle, that had been made just for me, tasty and hot with melted chocolate sauce! Just when we lost hope of finding somewhere good enough (fresh enough) I noticed the word “Waffle” out the corner of my eye, I just casually said “Oh!! there is a waffle place here” so we walked over to take a look! After about 3 seconds we had both fully committed ourselves to a “Super Bubble Waffle”! We only had to catch a glimpse (and smell) of a few of the happy customers walking away from the place, they literally had us drawling.


So now we had to make a decision on what concoction we would have with our waffle…hmm would we keep it healthy (tasty) by adding a tiny bit of strawberry, or would we just fully indulge and have any kind of chocolate we wanted?! Stephen decided on a “Banana and Nuts” but he replaced the banana for snickers! Here is what it contained:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Snickers
  • Pecan
  • Salted Peanuts
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Whipped Cream

I went for the ‘Mr Oreo’, but as I cannot stand whipped cream, I replaced that for a delicious scoop of the creamiest vanilla ice cream that even had pods in! My ‘Mr Oreo’ contained:

  • Nutella
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Oreos
  • Chocolate sauce

Let me tell you something now!!!! If you are EVER in Birmingham, even just passing through briefly on the train with a 30 minute window between trains! You MUST get yourself a “Super Bubble Waffle” because they are worth every single penny!
You are probably wondering what makes it so damn special, well let me break it down! First of all the shape of the waffle with its individual bubbles all over, allow you to break off one bubble at a time that is coated in ‘Nutella’ and scoop up a decent chunk of vanilla ice cream with each bite! OMW, it tastes amazing! I haven’t stopped thinking about eating one again since visiting (6 days ago). The waffle itself isn’t too sweet and isn’t in any way savoury so it’s just perfect, then with the warm ‘Nutella’ spread across it and the melting vanilla ice cream with broken pieces of ‘Oreo’ turning up here and there….it is like a dream come true! Honestly, all in all I cannot stress enough! if you are a dessert person, you love waffles or you are just a sweet tooth and you are in Grand Central, you have to go!
