On the Cuts & Nuts menu you’ll find all kinds of waffles, crêpes, pancakes and a few desserts like cakes, brownies and donuts. You also get to add any extra toppings, from a wide selection of nuts, fresh fruits, chocolate bars, ice-cream and marshmallow. We visited this dessert place in 6th of October to sample all the sweetness and left with a satisfied sweet tooth.
Signatures Dishes & Dishes Sampled
Signature items include the Molten cake, pancake tower, Cuts & Nuts tajine. All served with your choice of chocolate, whether Nutella, milk, or white chocolate, or a mixture of both. The Cuts & Nuts tajine, one of their most ordered signature dishes, is made up of small pieces of waffles, brownies and pancakes, covered with Nutella and melted marshmallow.
The first dish we sampled and our personal favorite was the round waffle, topped with thinly sliced fresh kiwi, strawberries, apples, and bananas, covered with Nutella and a drizzle of white chocolate. The fresh fruit made a perfect contrast with the golden waffles, crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, perfectly complemented with rich chocolate.
We went for freshly squeezed orange juice, which was really refreshing, and a pistachio milkshake with no artificial syrups or flavors whatsoever. Then came the divine, freshly baked molten cake with hot melting chocolate on the inside, which oozed out as we cut into the cake, with a side of vanilla ice-cream. This mixture of melting hot chocolate and icy cold ice-cream created a pleasant explosion in our mouths and we devoured the whole thing in minutes!
We were getting full with all the chocolate covered goodies we had consumed, but the calories just kept rolling to our table and we couldn’t resist. We dived into the crêpe sandwich. Folded into a single layer of crêpe were some really fresh seasonal fruits covered with Nutella and drizzled with two types of chocolate.
The last dish we sampled was the Pancake Tower, which consisted of four layers of pancakes, separated by whipped cream. The whole thing is then covered with Nutella.
Other Menu Options that Appealed & Beverages Available
The name Cuts & Nuts originally comes from the reinvention of chocolate fondue. They cut waffles into small squares, along with fruits and marshmallow, and serve it with a pod of melted hot chocolate, either white or milk chocolate straight from the chocolate fountain. The Nutella stuffed pancake is also another dish that we’d love to try the next time.
Beverages range from hot drinks to iced coffees, fresh fruit drinks, smoothies and milkshakes
Décor & Ambience
All rich brown and chocolaty, it’s an outdoor seating area that allows you to feel a fresh breeze. While you sit at your table you can see two running chocolate fountains on the counter in the front, one for white chocolate and the other for milk chocolate. Right next to the venue there is a playground area for kids to play and roam freely, so parents can keep an eye on them while indulging in their desserts.
Clientele mix: The clientele consisted of mainly college students, teenagers, and families with kids.
Price range: Prices and the portion sizes are good. Take away and delivery options are available.
