Went to the waffle shop for a late breakfast and It wasn't that busy. I was surprised at how expensive the meals were, but admit they were good. I was especially impressed at the thick cuts of bacon and how lean they were. Because of the price, I would try other places but would still come back here if convenient.

Visited morning of NSO. It was not busy (we wondered if it was open??). Service was fast and our waitress was a pleasant spunky. However the pancakes were not good. Have eaten here previously within the last months and had no complaints. Will cross fingers and try it again, as it is very convenient...

Don't let the line put you off the food is worth the wait. Great quality and price. My only tip is to ask for the home fries to be extra crispy otherwise they come out a little soft.

The food here is really good. I tried the waffles and they were yummy. The water had funny taste to it and their butter tasted like it was left exposed in the refrigerator. The prices were fair enough though.

We regularly eat here because the food is consistently tasty. There is almost always a line out the door, but the efficient service ensures the wait is never as long as it looks. The only drawback is remembering to bring cash or have to pay ATM fees there because it is cash only.

Back in my college days, I frequented the Waffle Shop on many, many mornings for breakfast. My daughter & I decided to go there for lunch last week, and wow! We both ordered the Avocado BLT (one on white, one on wheat) and they were awesome. Our server was fast and friendly, and when the food arrived we were missing... More

We've been here several times. There is always a line out the door and around the corner of the building. (Tip: 2-person parties seem to get inside quicker.) The 2-person tables are a little small, considering how much stuff is placed on them, but that's a small price to pay. The food is great. The service is super fast. One... More
