This is one of my most favorite restaurants. I love waffles and Grid Iron Waffle Shop's got 'em in spades! You can get filled sweet and savory waffles with an abundance of options. I highly recommend the Brie Bacon Waffle. It's the perfect combination of sweet and savory as it also comes with apricot preserves. Yummers! They have seating in... More

An outstanding first time experience in this casual eatery. Ann Marie was a fantastic server, all smiles and helpful hints on the menu - we took her great advice regarding the liege waffles and don't regret it for a second! Liege waffle was perfection, and the waffle with brie, bacon and basil was one of the best breakfasts I've ever... More

They do have great waffles but they lots more, their sandwiches and panini's are great. Nice cup of coffee and hot chocolate for the younger set. They have table service and it is casual but very nice. Absolutely fantastic for brunch! Lots of choices for both the breakfast side as well as the lunch side of brunch.

If you're looking for a change in breakfast this may be your place. Had the pannini with egg, cheese and tomato - nice and light - in a sandwich of pressed waffle. Large cup of coffee was nice. Park in the municipal lot in back - pay at the kiosk - 25 cents per half hour up to 3 hours.

If you like a strong coffee, there's is excellent. There are a number of delicious items on the brunch menu. Waffles with strawberries-yum!! A very good eggs florentine. I haven't had stuffed waffle for a while, but recall it being very, very tasty. I like brunch better than lunch menu. It is a little crowded, but do prefer it to... More

Bacon Egg and Cheese stuffed waffle pretty good. A little on the small side, but the price is right, so order two. Service was excellent, will go back.

The stuffed waffles are really good. They're fairly priced and delicious. They also have Sunday brunch options which are also reasonably priced. They have a large selection of coffees and panini's--typical coffee house fare. Again, the stand- out here is the stuffed waffle! Not too sweet and very filling. The place is pretty cramped and he service is...efficient, we'll say.... More

The sandwiches are greasy, and there's little variety. The service is surly and unfriendly. They say that the waffles are made using a recipe from Belgium, but I've never had such overly sweet waffles anywhere in Europe. I would not recommend Bonte to anyone.
