Not only is it Pumpkin Spice Latte season, but here’s another reason to get excited for Starbucks this fall: brunch. Starbucks is testing out Belgian waffles as part of a new project called Weekend Brunch.The sweet Belgian waffle topped with berries and powdered sugar was discovered as a new menu item in Portland, Oregon, by a blogger for Starbucks Melody.
Starbucks confirmed this was a test for approximately 70 Starbucks locations in the Portland and Seattle areas. It’s part of a wider brunch menu of freshly baked items that includes baked French toast and quiche, available on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., or until supplies run out.
The sad news is that, unfortunately, these brunch items won’t be made to order. Instead, like the rest of the coffee chain’s food and baked goods, they’ll arrive each morning and be stored inside the display case. Nevertheless, the verdict on the waffles, according to Starbucks Melody, is that they “are the perfect combination of sweet, crunchy, and flaky.”
