If you have the opportunity go here whilst in Victoria. We just had a simple waffle with whipped cream on and shared it as we had just had a big lunch. They are huge waffles and you could have one of these for lunch as you can have fruit and other bigger toppings on them. At $6 each they are... More

We had to go back twice in one weekend! Seriously, the most delicious waffles I have ever had! Great variety of toppings too. We will definitely go back our next visit to Victoria.

Went to a Wannawafel in Market Square and enjoyed it, but thought it's expensive for a snack. It's s once in a while kind of thing, so it's ok. Enjoy!

I was told about wannawaffle by friends because of my time spent living in Belgium. The waffles were every bit as good as I remember and I would recommend a visit while down town.

We first tried Wanawafel in July 2013 when we docked in Victoria on our Alaskan cruise. We fell in love with the charming little shop then and told our whole family about the DELICIOUS waffles they had missed out on. We've been hoping to go back since then. We finally got the chance again this week when we docked in... More

This wee gem of a place not only serves the BEST waffles you have ever tasted but offers a delicious cup of Columbian coffee to compliment the treats.The Belgian couple who run the outlet certainly know their business & take time to chat to their clientele. This is not to be missed when you are in Market Square - take... More

Description
We are very proud to say that Wannawafel inspired and changed the way Canadians think about waffles after appearing on the very popular CBC show Dragons'Den. Now waffles can be an all day snack, no it doesn't always need Maple Sirup. We bake them fresh, it is fine to have a waffle without a topping. Lets try it. In our business it is all about the waffle and the people who serve them, all for you.
