    Order a crispy, grilled waffle and pick your poison -- I mean, topping. Bananas, caramel and whipped cream, perhaps? Or maybe strawberries and Belgian chocolate. Read more

    Excellent service and great espresso drinks - we shared both types of wafflels because we couldn't decide between chewy or crunchy - glad we did because they were good contrasts to each other!!

    Service CAN be spotty because this homey waffle joint gets so hectic, but you can get your waflle to go. Worth it for the likes of their Oreo Freakin' Party waffle or Fruit Delight waffle. Read more

    Absolutely delicious. Sure the service is a bit slow, but just order a mug of tea, sit back, and wait for a delicious thick waffle with fabulous chocolate and strawberries on top.

    Yes, the service was sometimes slow, but they are cranking today during Head of the Charles weekend. From order to food in less than 5 minutes. Also, the best waffles in town. Like them a bit doughy!

    Bad service. No lines. Late night and still took long. Worlds smallest capuccino. Cheap bill but still not worth 10 bucks. Waffle was uncooked in the middle. Too doughy

    Agree with Joyce. Service by Cameron was horrible and way overpriced. Cute spot but I won't be coming back for seconds.

    Horrible service. They seem really disorganized and almost gave waffles to the wrong customers. Had to wait at least 20 min for some tiny overpriced waffles. Maybe they'll clean up their act..

    Now two kind of waffles: liège (from dough with Belgian pearl sugar) and Brussels (light and crispy). Both authentic Belgian waffles !

    Cozy and cute place, slow service but is worth waiting. The Brussels waffle is light and crispy also not very sweet-just perfect for me, try the Belgian chocolate topping.

    Although the place is small, it's cozy, serves warm waffles, and has free wi-fi!

    My friend spent the whole day here just because they played music from a good radio station. Waffles are a little over-priced though.
