Who knew waffles could be so much fun...especially in the middle of all the seriousness that is an Ivy Collegetown. You get any type of waffle your little heart desires....sweet, savory...you name it! With the freshest ingredients on your plate all overlooking the Ithaca Commons.

They were closing in 4 minutes and they were so polite and made the waffle and made a fabulous dessert. They also have sandwiches there and so many different combinations of waffles as a meal or a dessert. They have more seating.
