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.

A great place for a quick snack!

Been to this establishment a couple of times. Each time was fine. Menu isn't very complex, just straight waffles that are fairly heavy and doughy but at least you know you are getting some substance. Very small cooking area so I would think they are limited to what they can do. Staff very... read more

Light and yummy waffles were awesome. The fruit compote was super fresh and whipped cream just sweet enough. Chatting with the owner made this a great experience.

Visited Victoria for the weekend and heard about Wannawafel before I went, and it was so delicious I ended up eating there twice in the same day. They even made and put aside some waffles for me to take home, but I can't wait to be able to able to get back there and have them fresh again. Anyone visiting... More

Service, quality, taste, everything delivers here!!! I had what I thought was the biggest waffle but it turns out it was the lightest food I ever had. I could have ordered two!! Next time I will !

In the 60s I went to the world fair and had a Belgian waffle. This one was better! It was fresh off the press and was hot and delicious. This is a small restaurant so it was very crowded. At the time I was there I was entertained by a kindergarden group playing violins. They were amazing.

delicious love Wannawafel, however the more popular they become the less yummy they are. Mainly because they don't seem as fresh. It use to be they were a few or they would make you a new one, now it seems like they have rows of ones they made earlier. Still yummy and hasn't jumped the shark, but its not the... More

We ate here after finishing the victoria marathon. I had done my research and planned months in advance that this was going to be my treat. I was not disappointed! My husband and I shared a Belgian waffle with banana, whipped cream, ice cream and chocolate. It was so good! I guess it was a little pricey.. Over $10.. but... More

First read about wannawafel on the internet and had to give it a go while in Victoria. We were not disappointed. Renaat made us 2 x Liege waffles with raspberry and blueberry compote and a sliced banana. Very friendly owner and delicious waffles. Try them, you won't be disappointed !!
