Delicious, creative breakfast food

I had a delicious breakfast at the downtown location of Funk 'n Waffles. The bacon, basil, and Brie topped waffle with apricot jam was wonderful, as well as the James Brownie dessert waffle. I loved that all of the waffles are available in full and half sizes, so you can pick a portion size that... read more

I wrote a review back in 2012 about Funk 'n Waffles University location but they recently expanded and opened a downtown location (313 Clinton St. Syracuse, NY 13202) so this review is of the new location. The downtown location has the same menu but in a much more convenient location (assuming you're not an SU student). This new location is... More

Funk 'n Waffles has recently opened a location downtown on S. Clinton St. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with eh same quirky menu they have on the University Hill. But the facility is set up to handle live music, and that is the big difference in the new location. Wine and beer (liquor to follow) are... More

Recently went to a Syracuse game and stayed the night. When we woke up did a search for breakfast places, Denny's an here showed up. Plugged it into gps and off we went. It's down an alley and then down some stairs to a basement so I can see why Guy picked this for his show. The food didn't disappoint... More

I love the food and the service. The fact that the owner is one funky cat and a Bootsy Collins fan makes it even better. A local institution indeed and thankfully expanding to a 2nd location. Great guys great food and great service - where else would you want to go? Exactly - go here NOW

Been waiting for 30 minutes now, restaurant isn't busy. Doesn't matter how the food is, too frustrated by the wait. Hoping the experience gets better...

Absolutely great unique food at a reasonable price! Falafel Waffle with Israeli Salad and Tahini Gluten Free and delicious. Buckwheat waffle stuffed with Gouda Cheese and Herbs also Gluten Free was excellent. Funky Music and friendly staff makes this a worthwhile place to visit.

Been here before and the waffles are excellent. The coffee was great and the atmosphere is funky (nice) but the waffles do take a while to get out the kitchen so if your there and it's busy, be prepared to not be in a rush.

Stopped for lunch on route to Long Island. Had the Jive Turkey Waffle which was a waffle made of stuffing, topped with mashed potatoes, sliced turkey, gravy with a side of cranberry sauce. Absolutely amazing. Everything is made to order so it takes a little time, but was well worth it. Will visit again.

This was our #1 spot on our DDD tour of Syracuse. When you walk down the stairs to the restaurant, you're greeted w/ a funky cool vibe. You order and then seat yourself and wait for your order to be called to pick up your food. This is the best way for them to keep up with the insane crowds... More
