    The waffles are very good but the coffee/espresso drinks aren't quite as good. The Banana/Nutella waffle is amazing

    Just.. Eat everything. So good. Fairly small inside but for a party of 2, you can almost always get a table if you hang around for 5 minutes.

    They were walking distance from my hotel so I thought I would check them out. The coffee was burnt, and the waffle actually made me sick. I have been ill all day before I have to get on to a flight :(

    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

    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!
