The liege waffles are just as delicious as the ones we ate in Brussels and Bruge. You don't need any toppings, the caramelized sugar tastes just right!

The service was very friendly and without exaggeration we had the best waffels there. The dough is not made with too much oil and you can taste the melted caramel ...we can't describe it, just try it!

You don't get a lot of food for 2 people each with a coffee and waffle bill was over 30$ plus tip. However the waffles were excellent and eating in the patio was cozy

Waffle was amazing - liege waffle with strawberries and whipped cream. There is an area to sit inside or outside which is really nice. Slightly hidden but not too hard to find.

All I can say is....go get yourself the liege waffles topped with banana, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, and Nutella. Get coffee on the side, and have yourself a nice beautiful rest of the day!

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.
