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.

Had Lunch with my daughter. It is located in Market Square right across from the Kaboodles store. The smell of them making the fresh waffles definitely draws you in! Owned and operated by a wife and husband team, who are from Belgium, and definitely know what they are doing! I had the Liege... read more

Found place by chance while walking through the Market Square on a day visit. Had the Liège wafel with cream. The waffle was authentic Belgium "deliciousness", no surprise as the owner is from Belgium too, wonderful European hospitality to match. There is a rewards system in place too, so be sure to take your out of town friends for a... More

I love Wannawafel. I've been to their store and their cart. Their waffles are amazing. I can't wait for the gluten free option, though. This is a local family run business. Make sure that you try the different toppings on the waffles.

We found this cute place by coincidence when we're walking around Market Square. As my fiancé is originally from Belgium we wanted to see if the wafels really tasted like "authentic Belgian wafels". They do! We enjoyed a Liège wafel to go. Would go again! And the owner was really friendly too (and from Belgium ;-)) ☆☆☆☆☆

If you are craving for waffles anytime of the day don't miss this place. It's the best in town! It's a small place but the food is great, service is excellent, the place is clean and it's centrally located.

Stopped by for a mid afternoon snack. Food was really good but was really impressed with the service. The two ladies serving went out of there way make sure what we got and then delivering things to us and going back to make sure we were happy. Service was above and beyond.

Waffles are tasty, but the kicker is the toppings. We had the fruit compote, vanilla ice cream and whip cream. It was delicious and easily shared between my husband and I. Very friendly and doting staff.

Very fresh and light, delicious that you want to keep eating more and more, but I would not eat a meal before going there, as the portions are large and excellent.

My daughter and I had a waffle from their cart in the inner harbor in 2009 when they were just starting up. (see picture). It was clearly the best waffle we had ever tasted and left a lifelong memorable moment for us. I told all my friends and family about it. It was no surprise to see them on Dragon's... More
