Tasty waffles with dozens of permutations of toppings and styles from sweet to savory. We had one with Nutella and Strawberries, and one Raspberry Cheesecake style. Both were very tasty. Expect to wait a while during peak times but worth it.

This place is funky. I thought it was going to be a regular breakfast restaurant. It is a cross between a coffee house, fast food joint, bookstore and self serve breakfast place. The food was pretty good with so many sweet and savory waffle choices....More

I didn't expect this place to be as good as it was! It was pretty delicious. We got the florentine waffle and the artichoke and red pepper grilled cheese sandwich to start, both of which were very good - I would recommend more hollandaise on...More
