    Best waffle in the town .. Worse service in the town !! Expect to stand 10-15 minutes with no one on the line just for ordering !! They don't even apologize for being late!

    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!!

    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.

    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.

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

    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..

    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
