Our family enjoyed an amazing breakfast-brunch the day after Christmas. We had an omelette, French toast, sides of bacon, and two Panther plates. Everything tasted great and the service was personalized and fast. We will definitely return!!

It has been years since I visited this little restaurant in Cedar Falls. Located just south southeast of downtown Cedar Falls, the Waffle Stop provides great American-style breakfast and lunch options in a unique setting. We sat at a booth just east of the counter with stools and were promptly greeted with waters and offered coffee to go with breakfast.... More

A group of 10 of us were in town for the Luke Bryan concert this past weekend. Rather than eating breakfast at a chain like Panera, we chose this local breakfast nook, per the recommendation of a couple friends and the internet at large. Be aware that they have limited space, and likely cannot accommodate a group of more than... More

What do you give your 84 yr old mother for her birthday? She doesn't need anything. BUT - she loves road trips. And she loves going out for breakfast... so we drove 45 minutes to try the Waffle Stop Grill, based on the excellent reviews. What a delightful little diner. The food was scrumptious, the waitress friendly, the service prompt,... More

Let me start out by saying our food and service was decent. Not spectacular, but not terrible. My problem was with how our group witnessed the treatment of a neighboring table. The resteraunt was full because a bunch of us were in town for a huge wrestling event. The family at a neighboring table had 5 people (we had 8)... More

wondering if we just hit this place on the wrong day or if it is one of the places just locals love. Our food was average - the waffle was somewhat dry and the hashbrowns were not very hot. Service was pretty good - the waitress was friendly, but the place looks run down and dirty. I would go again... More

World's best pancakes! Fast service. Get there early or late morning to avoid the crowd.

Waffle stop is a neighborhood breakfast joint that opened up in the early 90's as the building was a gas station in its former life. The facility is small, but clean. Not really much of an atmosphere, just a place to sit down and relax. Plenty of windows to let the sunlight in. Despite the large number of resturants in... More

We were sent to Waffle Stop as it was the place the locals went. At about 10:30 on Saturday it was still packed and we understand why. Good breakfast, eggs, waffles, the usual, with nothing fancy, but good service and portions.

Staff is very kind, food is delicious! Panther plate was awesome and the side of biscuits & gravy was the best I have found in the area. Don't waste your time with village inn or any of the chain places!
