What to Eat at Syrup Desserts, Open Downtown

Photo: Syrup Desserts

Syrup Desserts is now open Downtown, sticking to a large menu of imaginative sweet stuff from breakfast to dinner in the Hayward Hotel. Syrup specializes in coffee, with both an American and European menu, plus hot teas and chocolates, and iced teas that include intriguing agave matcha, habanero lime, and mint mojito flavors. Waffles, crepes, and sweet grilled cheese so-far comprise the edible portions of the menu, with more sandwiches and salads arriving soon. The grilled cheeses are very creative, with offerings like Asian pear and gouda, and blackberry and walnut, served on Cuban bread, cinnamon toast, and croissants. Dulce de leche ice-cream and Aztec hot chocolate stand out on this menu of so much sweetness, as do the reasonable prices. Take a look at all Syrup’s menu has to offer:
