We discovered this place because of the Trip Advisor app, and we were hungry coming into the city on the Metro. This place gets very busy and there is very little seating. Chances are you might be sitting next to people you don't know. The...More

We visited from the UK and wanted an authentic US breakfast - this was perfect. The waiter was really friendly and the food, although basic, was great. Nothing fancy but it was just what we were after. Thanks!

When I heard Waffle Shop, I was instantly excited at the thought of delicious chicken and waffles. Unfortunately, they only had bone-in chicken. So I went with a normal diner breakfast. Waffle (thinner than I prefer but delicious with lots of syrup), over medium eggs...More

Always stop here when in town just for the fun of it! The owners are extremely friendly and entertaining! Waffles and chicken are good. It is just a little "hole" in the wall that is clean and has good food! The staff is what keeps...More

I did not see Scrappie on the menu. I ate pancakes and bacon and it was very good. The place was very crowded but everyone ate and moved on so no one had to wait. It must be a local favorite and a hidden gem.
