A local restaurant with lots of character! It's only open for breakfast, but that alright. They're very good at making delicious breakfasts!

I have eaten here several times and I really enjoy the friendliness and excellent service. The food is typical breakfast/brunch food--eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, etc.--but all of it is very well-prepared. Portions are generous (maybe too generous, especially the Panther plates!) for the money. It is an old fashioned diner you go when you want a comfort food breakfast/brunch... More

First time stopping at the Waffle Stop for breakfast. I think they only do breakfast & lunch. For $9 I got bacon, 2 eggs, hash-browns and toast plus a full size waffle. Everything was very good except, surprisingly, my waffle which was ordinary. Thought they would probably do a Belgium style waffle because of the name but they don't. Still... More

Our retired church members meet monthly for brunch. I try a variety of breakfasts. This month I tried their bacon and cheese omelet and it was light and fluffy. I would say it was the best I've ever had. This is a known mom and pop restaurant. The waitress that serves us is amazing. There are usually 16-24 of us... More

Taste like a waffle , just like an old diner in this place. Fast served friendly waitress. The French toast was good. The biscuts and gravy was decent. Only bad call was strawberries on the waffle , it was out of a jar no fresh fruit here. At least served in a cup so we didn't have to scrape it... More

We stopped here on our way through town. Service was good, and the portions were huge. The pancakes were pretty good, but nothing outstanding. Its a step above stopping at McDonald's for breakfast, but not quite as good as I wanted it to be.

Lack of options is all I can come up with for why people think the Waffle Stop is good. The service was acceptable, the food was ok at best, but they got my wife's order wrong, and they give generous portions.

Our family enjoyed an amazing breakfast-brunch the day after Christmas. We had an omelette, French toast, sides of bacon, and two Panther plates. Everything tasted great and the service was personalized and fast. We will definitely return!!

It has been years since I visited this little restaurant in Cedar Falls. Located just south southeast of downtown Cedar Falls, the Waffle Stop provides great American-style breakfast and lunch options in a unique setting. We sat at a booth just east of the counter with stools and were promptly greeted with waters and offered coffee to go with breakfast.... More
