Amazing!

The food is very good, the menu is very creative, staff is great, inexpensive. I had a stuffed waffle, and my husband had the french toast with mascarpone cheese. Both were very tasty!

A great, casual local place for different kinds of waffles - not just for breakfast. The service was good. The atmosphere was casual, and it looked like a local gem. Definitely I'll come back as this was my second visit.

You can find a delicious choice for everyone in the family. You can satisfy your sweet tooth or have a savory breakfast. Cozy atmosphere, nice selection, different than the usual fare in South Orange. We would definitely recommend it!

Seriously good waffles. I had liege waffle stuffed with bananas and walnuts. Each stuff in is an extra $.50. Worth it but the waffle plain would have been great too, so syrup needed. Sons had shrimp and grits and a build your own omelet, both very good...especially the grits. Service was just ok. The waitress was not unfriendly, just seemed... More

Went here for crepes today. The place is small and simple, but comfortable. We waited about 20 min for our table. The hostess was very pleasant and kept us up to date on the progress of having a table. I ordered the Berry crepe with whipped cream. Yum! Light and fresh and very tasty. I also had the berry smoothie... More

The food is amazing, the staff is amazing, and the decor is amazing! I absolutely love this place! Especially love how clean the place was, and that it's family run (overheard another table talking to the owners daughter). The cinnamon liege waffles are amazing, and so unique. I was a bit nervous to try something new, but it was definitely... More

Love this place. I go as often as possible. The waffles are divine, coffee lovely, atmosphere tremendous and menu offers much more than waffles so everyone can find something to love. A must visit.

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
