Bullig is located in the Butterfly Estates. They are open 9-3 or 10-3 depending on the day. They are closed on Mondays. Parking can be tricky as there are limited spaces that are shared with the Butterfly Estates. They share the love for their Oma, their dog, coffee, and waffles. This is no ordinary coffee and waffles shop though. Their story is depicted in their menu and decor as well. They recently remodeled and we found it to be so warm and friendly. Their ohmage to Oma is noted with the inclusion of 2 of her chairs, her recipes, and her love of the movie Up.
The coffees are all espresso based. We tried the Oma’s Wake Up Call – (Oma’s Original Recipe Cocoa Reduction makes this a Kickin’ Cocoa Latte) 5.25 and the Tinder Date (Latte made with Oma’s Original Recipe Cocoa Reduction mixed with Strawberry Syrup and Topped with Fresh Whip, Chocolate Chips, & Fresh Strawberry) 5.95 Both were excellent!!!
We then tried The Bullig (The One that Started it All. Savory Bacon atop Melted Cheese, & Layered with Fresh Cut Tomato, Avocado, Maple Dressed Greens, & a Poached Egg*. Served with a Side of our Bullig-Made Green Aioli) 13.95. This was unbelievably good. The waffles are very light and fluffy. Everything is made fresh and to order so it does take time to get your beverages and food, but it is well worth it. Service was friendly and timely. Our server answered all our questions and we never felt rushed.
They are a “Tip Free Zone”. They add a 17.8% service fee to each ticket. Their reasons according to their website are: “This helps us create a “Hospitality Included” atmosphere without expectations of gratuity. It gives our entire Team, Front and Heart of House, a Fair and Stable Wage that they can count on regardless of Scheduling, Times, Position Held or even Pandemic type Side Effects like Limited Seating.” One can add extra is one chooses, and they share those as well as donate to a nonprofit of the teams choosing. We did not mind that the tip was included, and we did add to it.
While the location of Bullig can be challenge, it is well worth the trip. Their food and coffee are an experience. So, the next time you are downtown, stop by and give them a try.
