We are very proud to say that Wannawafel inspired and changed the way Canadians think about waffles after appearing on the very popular CBC show Dragons'Den. Now waffles can be an all day snack, no it doesn't always need Maple Sirup, we bake them fresh, it is fine to have a waffle without a topping. Lets try it. In our business it is all about the waffle and the people who serve them, all for you.

Heard this place had amazing waffles so we went to look for it after lunch. The owner was very nice and he was the one taking and making our order. The waffles with vanilla ice cream were SO good!

While there isn't a huge selection of toppings for your waffles, I really love the option between a light waffle, and a thicker, richer waffle. I LOVE getting a light waffle with icecream, bananas and chocolate. The service is always very friendly, and the sitting area is pleasant outside.

The smell of the cooking waffles is heavenly, but I always find the end result disappointing. It is expensive for the portion received and the flavour is only so-so. The topping range is limited and all on the sweet/whipped cream side.

It was a tasty afternoon treat. If you get the lighter waffle, stick with whipped cream or something else light, otherwise the fluffiness of the waffle is ruined (though still good). If you want ice cream or the fruit compote, get the heavy waffle.

First timer for the Wannawafel experience and just returned from Anwerpen Belgium last week (where we experienced the tasty Belgium waffle)! Located this little establishment in the Market Square which has limited outside seating and ordered (2) waffles (whip cream & fresh strawberries) plus coffees total was over $20., which is more expensive that Europe! However these waffles were very... More

I've eaten a lot of waffles in my forty seven years on this planet, but no other has ever come close to the sweet, buttery richness of every one I've eaten at Wannawafel. My wife and I stumbled into this charming little shop while on a stroll through Victoria (the smell of waffles baking first attracted my attention). We each... More

Caramelly, crunchy, light, sweet and fresh. These waffles don't disappoint. The atmosphere is very charming.

Had brunch waffles and they were hot and delicious, very friendly staff too! A hidden gem that is just inside the market square.
