This appears to be a popular place for college students. They do not accept credit cards, so be prepared to pay cash. There is an ATM at the front of the restaurant. While my meal was average, they were nice enough to accommodate my request to modify my omelette and switch the home fries for fruit, and the English muffin... More

I think we should have tried other things, but we had waffles and pancakes. They were good, but not great. My niece really liked the chocolate chip waffle. We had plain and Iowa corn pancakes and they both seemed hard and dry. The egg dishes being served looked really good...mercy time.

Waffles are super; as well as, all the other choices that we had! Portion size was so much that we took leftovers home with us. Get there early because the restaurant got very busy as we were leaving. We went on a Saturday morning that the football game was away so we didn't have to wait - our granddaughter told... More

Just remember to take cash and a hearty appetite. There is somethings for everyone in your party and they never make you feel rushed to leave. Bottomless coffee and home fries are the highlights!

Every time my friends and I come for the weekend or when I come with my kids we always go here for breakfast. The blueberry pancakes are amazing! We've tried a variety of different things and no one has ever been disappointed.

We stopped here for breakfast and it was really good and reasonably priced. Waffle, ham, eggs, potatoes all good! Not all mine! Lol. In and out fairly fast too. No debit or credit cards!

There is usually a line here and for good reason. They are friendly and efficient with getting people in and seated. Great choices, portions, service and grub. Not a surprise that this place is successful.

Both of The Waffle Shop's 2 locations serve up delicious breakfast and lunch. There are often lines waiting, but the wait is worth it and they move people through at a good pace. You can expect friendly service from a well trained staff.
