Went to a Wannawafel in Market Square and enjoyed it, but thought it's expensive for a snack. It's s once in a while kind of thing, so it's ok. Enjoy!

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.
