My daughter and I had a waffle from their cart in the inner harbor in 2009 when they were just starting up. (see picture). It was clearly the best waffle we had ever tasted and left a lifelong memorable moment for us. I told all...More

We strolled around in downtown Victoria, and ran across the place called WANNAWAFEL. So we decided on a quick note to check it out, and ordered 2 different kinds of wafels, and they were both very delicious. Really recommendable, though a bit pricy.

My friend and I had the strawberry Belgium waffle with whipped cream; it was delicious. The seating area is outdoors underneath the shade of umbrellas and we enjoyed our afternoon treat watching the visitors to the market square browse the shops. The man that made...More

A special treat: two kinds of waffles, various toppings. Try them to eat there or to go! The aroma will draw you in... I go as often as I can.

We stumbled across this place just after closing time, and the owner couldn't have been nicer. They were out of waffles, but we had a nice chat with him. Great chap. Went back two days later just before leaving to catch the ferry. What a...More

Heard this place had amazing waffles so we went to look for it after lunch. The owner was very nice and he was the one taking and making our order. The waffles with vanilla ice cream were SO good!

While there isn't a huge selection of toppings for your waffles, I really love the option between a light waffle, and a thicker, richer waffle. I LOVE getting a light waffle with icecream, bananas and chocolate. The service is always very friendly, and the sitting...More

The smell of the cooking waffles is heavenly, but I always find the end result disappointing. It is expensive for the portion received and the flavour is only so-so. The topping range is limited and all on the sweet/whipped cream side.

It was a tasty afternoon treat. If you get the lighter waffle, stick with whipped cream or something else light, otherwise the fluffiness of the waffle is ruined (though still good). If you want ice cream or the fruit compote, get the heavy waffle.

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.
