Best eggs anywhere; always perfectly prepared. Wonderful omelettes with lots of choices. Crispy bacon if ordered that way. Good coffee. Free refills on soup! And I have never had anything but cheerful, efficient service. These local Waffle Shops are managed better than any restaurant I know. Worth standing in line.

The food is good and there are many options on the menu. This place is great for brunch with friends. Kid-friendly. There was a pretty long wait for a table, but it was worth the wait.

Look, everybody here is telling you it's good. And they tell you it's a staple of visiting Penn State and State College, PA. So what can I say different?
Instead, I'll concentrate on the line. TOWS is popular, so there will be a line on the weekends until early afternoon. BUT....it moves quickly and the staff manages it well. They make sure the entranceway doesn't getting jammed up; they ensure the line curves around the building and not into the parking lot so you are safe; they are polite and answer questions.
If you are going to have to wait in line, then better to have a line that is well managed. Good job TOWS.

After a nail biting W from #PSUFootball where do you celebrate the day after....at the Waffle Shop!

Yes, the wait is not fun, but the food and service are worth it! So do yourself a favor, stand in the line...and give your taste buds a warm food hug!

I got the omelette with a size of pancakes, of course it was too much food, but the food coma was worth it!
