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.

We loved it!

We went after my sister recommended it and we loved it! Not too many options, but a lot of different combinations! I had the Brussels waffle and my partner had the Liège waffle. Both were excellent. They also offer sodas in glass bottles which I am always a sucker for.

We went to the location at the public market, inside and outside seating. There is also a small setup by the harbour across from the Empress hotel by the Water Taxi. Family owned. Nice people. I enjoyed a light waffle with ice cream and mixed berries....raspberry and blueberry ....fabulous flavour. My husband had a batter waffle (heavier) with banana, whipping... More

We promised our son a treat and went to here today. These waffles are amazing! The best I have ever had. Warm with whipped cream and a delicious fruit compote. We tried one of each kind, both were so good. Cannot wait to return and try other combinations.

Forget Eggo style waffles. Forget those waffles at the chain Hotel breakfast. These are something completely different. I prefer them "straight up", as in no sauce. A must do thing if your close!!!

Very small seating area inside & outside...recommend going on a sunny day, sitting outside, people watching, taking time to savour your freshly made light and fluffy waffle creation. Personalize it with your choice of healthy or deliciously decadent toppings. A delight for your senses; sight, smell, taste, perhaps even touch. These are the best waffles I've ever experienced...ever!

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 friendly. Must be owner operated. I recommend... 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.
