    Love the atmosphere & music. Prompt service. Great with drink refills. Very impressed with the menu. I highly recommend the waffle flight for a great taste. The Waffles Benedict are out.of.this.world❤

    Check out their daily specials, this place is great value for the amount of food on your plate. Enjoyed the chicken and waffles for only $5.99! Brunch all day!

    Went on a Thursday afternoon-no wait, kinda empty & good service. Loved the food. I'm a veggie guy, so skipped on the meat items on menu. Had the Liege and will be come back for more.

    Waffles taps the full potential of its namesake dish with unexpected combinations, such as green-tea waffles with lemon-ginger Chantilly cream and a Mexican chocolate version with orange anglaise. Read more

    This mod eatery—so contemporary it has a conference room—specializes in two versions of its eponymous breakfast food: a crisp and airy Brussels waffle, and a dense and sugary Liége waffle. Read more

    Patrons can order up waffles prepared in the Brussels style or Liege style, with the former featuring a fluffier consistency & the latter containing morsels of exploded sugar pearls. Read more

    Green T & Ginger waffle: EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK! Doesn't have a pleasant taste. REC: 1) Red Velvet & 2) Mexican Drk Choc. Liege waffle- alright, but too chewy. Flight hot choco minis (4): diabetic coma!

    I couldn't decide, so I tried the sample option. Coupled with fresh OJ, it was a lovely experience! Will definitely be back when down this way.

    Quality of service and food has slipped, perhaps distracted by new location @ Lakeview. Newbies should try waffle flight, and for those with the appetite the meat and egg variations won't disappoint

    Had a very simple waffle since I was short on time. Very tasty, nice service, don't understand why all the complaints. I'll be back soon!

    Seasonal waffle coming soon!! Tried it today.... PUMPKIN!!! With pumpkin seeds on top, caramelized in maple syrup. Awesome creation by one of the chefs...

    The dense, chewy Liege, with lightly caramelized surfaces, takes well to cheddar and short rib ($11.95) that's slow-cooked to a moist, fork-tender finish. Read more

    Try the Waffle Benedict. It's fantastic. Just the right combination of sweet and savory. The cucumber water is also a nice touch.

    Go in early to avoid long waits, but the wait is ALWAYS worth it. Don't expect the food to come out 10 mins later, its not McDonald's, everything is made by hand with fresh ingredients. Be patient!

    They turn a plain and simple meat, eggs and potatoes breakfast into heaven. I'm pretty sure the cooks are actually wizards. Breakfast wizards.

    This place is going out of business. Food sucks. Service is worse. Prices are awful! Small portions. Best thing they have is the red velvet waffle and it came out cold after waiting a long ass time!

    $8 for 1 normal size waffle with no side included & an extra $1 for syrup? you'd think they actually had them made in Brussels & overnighted! Overpriced & under delivered!

    Waited an hour to be seated for poor service (one person's dish was brought 10 minutes after everyone else's). The Liege Waffle was lackluster at best. Go elsewhere for your weekend breakfast!

    Приходите и не пожалеете, огромный выбор завтраков, кофе, хоть упейся, быстро, вкусно. В выходные, очередь, можно заказать из дома и взять самим, с собой.Тост с авокадо, бурратой и песто, нереальный.
