We found this cute place by coincidence when we're walking around Market Square. As my fiancé is originally from Belgium we wanted to see if the wafels really tasted like "authentic Belgian wafels". They do! We enjoyed a Liège wafel to go. Would go again!...More

If you are craving for waffles anytime of the day don't miss this place. It's the best in town! It's a small place but the food is great, service is excellent, the place is clean and it's centrally located.

Waffles are tasty, but the kicker is the toppings. We had the fruit compote, vanilla ice cream and whip cream. It was delicious and easily shared between my husband and I. Very friendly and doting staff.

Very fresh and light, delicious that you want to keep eating more and more, but I would not eat a meal before going there, as the portions are large and excellent.

We strolled around in downtown Victoria, and ran across the place called WANNAWAFEL. So we decided on a quick note to check it out, and ordered 2 different kinds of wafels, and they were both very delicious. Really recommendable, though a bit pricy.

A special treat: two kinds of waffles, various toppings. Try them to eat there or to go! The aroma will draw you in... I go as often as I can.

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.
