    The waffles (made with corn meal) will not get you full and if you don't like hard or crunchy waffles avoid avoid avoid.

    The waffle is good plain, but when you add the apple cider syrup it becomes amazing! We only had to wait 15 minutes and were served coffee while we were waiting - the staff were all very nice.

    If it weren't for the rude wait staff. Our experience would have been very pleasant since we've heard the chicken is amazing. But the wait was really quite unbearable.

    Save yourself the $15 the chicken and waffles are not worth it. Chai Latte is really bad.

    Awesome place for Chicken and Waffles. Be sure to ask for the pieces you want (ie) breast, thigh, leg... If you have a late brunch past 12:00 Noon seating is quicker.
