Something for Everyone-Even Vegans !!

We found this place on Happycow.com (vegan website) The directions took us to a laneway and down a set of stairs like something out of a Stephen King novel. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very (very) casual, unique restaurant that offers excellent Vegan options. Check out the Monte Cristo... read more

Chicken and waffles were great. Pleasantly surprised that beer is on the beverage menu because it is not mentioned on-line.

Visited Funk n Waffles for the third time for breakfast while in Syracuse. Sunday late morning was fairly quiet. I had ordered the Chicken and Waffles which I've never had before. It took some time for my order to be prepared, approximately 10 minutes, but I ended up getting the half waffle with 4 wings. The plate came with sides... More

Liked the atmosphere, food was good. Not extraordinary but we weren't looking for that nor expecting it. Very crowded on a Sunday mid morning but not so crowded as to turn away. Waited about a 1/2 hour. Nice portions to satisfy the young adult males in our group. Pancakes good, Cuban Rueben delicious. Wanted to order milkshakes as a second... More

I think funk 'n waffles is really a must visit for Syracuse. Very unique options for a lot of their waffles and so tasty. Just like in the name, they're always playing funk music. The only thing that prevents me from giving it the full 5 stars would probably be the price of some of their more basic waffles. Some... More

My boyfriend found this place online and saw that it had great reviews and at first I was skeptical of coming here since I am not a huge waffle eater, but gave in. We arrived and the outside looked very unusual not your normal breakfast place and underground but then when we walked in the atmosphere was very "funky." Since... More

First, this place is difficult to find. It's actually tucked in an alley down a flight of steps. The owner greeted us promptly and explained the setup. He was very nice. I would rate the food a four. It was tasty and the waffle dishes were unique. It was very busy and continued to be busy the whole time we... More
