Our kids loved the churro waffles - they are crispy and cinnamony on the outside and soft and chewy inside JUST like real churros! Fun atmosphere. Great service. Get here before 9am to avoid the wait.

This place was just like people had said good food and good friendly service. Just smaller than I had expected. But good place. Not bad prices. Cute place for kids also. Service was fast. Liked the waffles. Would be nice to go back.

My husband and I stopped at the Waffle Spot for breakfast. The waffles were the best! I had the breakfast potatoes with onions and peppers. They were delicious. I'll definitely be back in the future. We highly recommend you stop here on your visit to San Diego.
