This place was cute and small. Good place to grab a quick bite. I didn’t order food but it smelled delicious. I ordered a strawberry peach smoothie and it was a little more tart but still nice on a hot day.

Nice little place near Harvard square. They have good selection of fruit and other toppings to out on your waffles. Not a lot of seats, but the service is fast and their waffles taste good. They also have several options for beverages to choose from.

Amazing waffles with lots of topping options. A bit pricey but the quality ingredients make up for it. I recommend fruit on the liege waffle and something chocolate on the Belgian

These waffles are absolutely delicious. The Belgian chocolate is perfect drizzled on top of the waffles, and the espresso is great too. It’s a really cute, small shop with a great view of the Harvard Square area. I would highly recommend Zinneken’s!

Final edit:

Okay so I went back a third time and tried to order the Liege again with toppings. My friends did the same. This time each order came out in in less than five minutes. And it was all yummy! I don’t know what changed. Maybe I went on bad days before and had the wrong impression. I still maintain that the Brussels waffle was the grossest thing I’ve ever had, but I think this is definitely a five star place otherwise.

Original review:

Very cozy place reminiscent of Europe. Prices are very good. However, I had the Liege Waffle and not only did they take extremely long to complete my order despite not being busy (10-15 minutes), the waffle was not good. So doughy it feels undercooked and so chewy it feels like a bagel more than a waffle. I will try the other waffle (light and crispy type) and change my review accordingly. Still, I hope my order doesn’t take so long next time.

Edit: I ordered a Brussels waffle and deducted a star. I was hoping it’d be better than the Liege but it was somehow worse. At least it came out quickly this time. The driest thing I’ve ever had. It was pretty much inedible and I had to throw it away. So all in all, cute quiet atmosphere but that is literally all this place is good for. The waffles are gross.

Also, the girl working there was screaming on her phone the entire time I was there, her voice was quite loud and abrasive. I don’t think the other staff are like this, but it was a huge turn off as well.
