I didn't expect this place to be as good as it was! It was pretty delicious. We got the florentine waffle and the artichoke and red pepper grilled cheese sandwich to start, both of which were very good - I would recommend more hollandaise on...More

Had breakfast there this weekend. Very innovative idea. Understand that everything is served on a waffle. Watched a couple of visiting Ithaca parents (everything they wore said Ithaca College) come in and order eggs, bacon and waffle and be upset that the eggs and bacon...More
