Local NewsTK Brantford celebrates a year of satisfying the taste buds

Temptation Kitchen, Brantford’s own gourmet waffle restaurant and event space, celebrated its first Waffle-versary on Saturday, January 20, 2024.

Chef Ed Bernstein, owner of Temptation Kitchen (TK), and his team offered up all of their various gourmet waffle dishes for just ten dollars, as well as free samples during the one-day event.

The busy team also hosted a waffle creation competition where customers could unleash their creativity and design their own dream waffle.

Bernstein noted that while they did have a few hiccups regarding wait times throughout the day, they served well over 100 waffles during the event.

“I actually had my batter pre-made and there was enough for a festival where we would bring two or three giant containers, and we easily went through those on Saturday,” he said. “I actually had to reset my batter on the fly around four times and we weren’t expecting that.”

The BLT Wafflewich was one of the many unique creations offered during TK’s first Waffle-versary on Saturday, January 20, 2024.

Kevin Davis, Mayor for the City of Brantford, Larry Brock, MP of Brantford-Brant and his provincial counterpart, Will Bouma, all made a stop at the local waffle shop to extend their congratulations to Bernstein and his team.

Nancy Dow of Deliciously Brantford, a blogger that offers a local perspective on the community’s culinary scene, was also one of the many customers who attended Saturday’s event.

Dow, who indulged in the New York Cheesecake Waffle, said that she was looking forward to her first taste of TK and was happy to support local.

“I’m just really excited that there are things like this here, especially in downtown because I know it can sometimes get a bad rap, but we have some awesome things down here,” she said.

From sweet to savoury, there is no shortage of unique dishes to try at TK. Whether it’s the Tiramisu Waffle, Classic Chicken and Waffle Sandwich, Philly Cheesesteak Wafflewich, or the Cookies n’ Cream Waffle, there are plenty of options to satisfy all taste buds.

Located near the corner of Colborne Street and King Street in downtown Brantford, TK has been offering a delicious spin on the classic breakfast food since November 2022.

In just over a year of business, TK has served up thousands of waffles, hosted over 20 parties and participated in over ten pop up and in-store events.

“We couldn’t have done it without the support of this community and we just love putting a smile on people’s faces,” said Bernstein. “It’s obviously a challenge to run businesses these days and it requires a lot of perseverance to make it through that but we’re definitely always learning and improving.”
